Well here is a pic of the gauge pod after engraving the corvette emblem on a CNC mill at my work, still have some wet sanding and polishing to do. I went with 3.5" for speedo and tach and 2 1/6" for rest of gauges, blue LED for high beam and green LED's for turn signals really clean look. Should be installed in the car by this weekend.
Have considered making templates for this?
It seems like there is a lot of interest, and like you do quality work.
I know this thread is a little old but can you but JUST the dash panel without the gauges? It doesn't seem like it, i haven't found one yet. Anybody seen one? I don't want to gauges too, just the panel...
having problems at low speeds with it though.....speedometer wants to jump around at speeds below 45-50mph......hi beam light is extremely bright.....light for the water temperature does not work......Jody from Vett Aid has been very good about responding to these issues, though......seems like a class act......

me? the smaller one on the top left by headlights is the foglight switch. the one to the right where the info cluster was(actually theres 2 side by side and a gauge over there) is for the front air ride.
I like the idea of analog gauges. The instrument panels in the C4's..especially the later models...was a BIG step backwards in my opinion.
However..what I would like to see...is someone offer a analog conversion for the C4 panel...using C5 or C6 instrument in place of the after market type instruments. I think it would look more like...stock from the factory...plus having a more finished look. As anyone tried this idea?
