Re: dash conversion

just buy a 5G, it'll be easier. plus the 4th gen dash is about one of the most unique dashes ever created, why would you wanna ruin it and put the most boring, run-of-the-mill, regular honda gauges back in there?

If you don't like the dash in there, you might as well get rid of the car, it the most unique dash honda ever made.

Re: dash conversion

A jack-a-lope is unique too... Lol

I would LOVE a 5g dash in a 4g. I think a nicely done 4g is one of the best looking cars,(see up a few inches.. able's and djps) that being said, HATE the dashes. Its just my opinion.

The wiring would be the least of the issues....kinda. First off, you would need TOTALLY custom door panels to match up the lines of the dash. Next, the HVAC would be a nightmare. Guys complain about JDM auto control swap, this would be a whole new cornicopia of head bangin on wall. The electrical would be...okay, yeah, that would suck, but would be the most managable thing. The hard part would be the proper sending units. I cant imagine the inputs to the LCD controler would be the same as the analog gauges of a 5g.

Given all that info...I let you know in 5 years when I build a targa, HVAC-less 4g.

Re: dash conversion

i think its a neat idea. true the 4g dash is the most unique, but everyone always talks aobut being unique, and whats unique about having the same dash as every other 4g lol.

GO FOR IT MAN!!!!! but do your homework haha

Re: dash conversion

agreed, but i guess that with anything. if your not wanting a s**t ton of work and still want something different, then do the leds and change the color of it. and if you dont already have it, the el cluster makes it alot better.

its the eluminated cluster that came out of the later year si models, a much better look than the tired gauges. and you can also change the color. pretty hard to find tho (not the cluster itself but one that comes with the wiring harness as well)
