Makes sense.

What stainless are you pulling? I'm not familiar with what there is...interior trim under the doors maybe? Mine has various bits of chrome and spun aluminum gauges.

Speaking of gauges, I need a fuel gauge, doesn't need to work...I have the face with water temp/fuel/volts but no can for it. There's a small rectangular hole where a vacuum or boost gauge is supposed to be, but I have a 2 inch vacuum gauge where my PRNDL was (and no vacuum bar meter) so I'm probably going to put my high beam indicator there (currently located behind steering wheel trim, lights up blue around the steering column). I don't want to risk destroying my gauge.

mine has stainless down the rockers and wheel lips. my high beam and stuff is in the speedo

theholycow 08-12-2012 05:37 PM

High beam used to be in my PRNDL.

You have a shift indicator? :wtf:

shootermcgavin003 08-12-2012 05:41 PM

---------- Post added at 03:41 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:41 PM ----------

I thought you meant a light to tell you when to shift.

I think my new gauge face may have a low fuel light too, now that you mention it. maybe not.

Check for that trim you need.

see my gauge is nothing like that its just a big fuel gauge and led light. cow if you find in a yard a od gear indicator get it and ill buy it.

theholycow 08-13-2012 01:19 AM

Round 2 inch? Post a photo of something like it.

If you don't need od, I don't expect to ever use mine again but it's just prnd21.

shootermcgavin003 08-13-2012 04:12 PM

i looked again mines is like yours but black. od is what i need i may just use a aftermarket gear indicator

---------- Post added at 02:12 PM ---------- Previous post was at 02:07 PM ----------

i thinking after 140 mph speed in oem locations tach where fuel gauge is and a small fuel gauge in the indicator. as for the bright light just a led in the wood above would work. idk what to put in the clock place maybeye a quad gauge.

theholycow 08-13-2012 04:56 PM

Post a photo of your dash. I wish mine had places for more gauges.

shootermcgavin003 08-13-2012 05:03 PM

i dont have one right now ill have to get one at home. my dash is like yours minus the gauges being black.

shootermcgavin003 08-15-2012 01:47 AM

shootermcgavin003 08-19-2012 02:12 PM

theholycow 08-20-2012 04:01 AM

:lol: mine has exhaust leak too.

shootermcgavin003 08-20-2012 01:26 PM

mines in that fucking crossover pipe. i hate that thing.

theholycow 08-20-2012 02:50 PM

The pipe that goes from the drivers side manifold, under the engine near the bellhousing, and back up to the retarded junction box?

---------- Post added at 08:50 AM ---------- Previous post was at 08:50 AM ----------

That pipe on mine is going to rub through eventually, it rubs right against my bellhousing.

shootermcgavin003 08-20-2012 03:17 PM

mine actually is a little different it runs across and y in to the other collector on the right side at the bottom in front of mt cat convertor. but same thing really

---------- Post added at 01:15 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:14 PM ----------

sure makes life hell when changing starters the olds engins have starters on the left and the pipe lays against it.

---------- Post added at 01:17 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:15 PM ----------

i would like to loose at that shit have duals

theholycow 08-20-2012 03:18 PM

Speaking of bellhousings, wish I could afford this showpiece:

I'm sure it'll go for over a hundred bucks. Mine didn't come with the fork boot or the inspection cover...I half-assed both using hastily cut flat aluminum and rubber stock and a zip tie.
