Cool new gauges

To go along with the carb project for the 454SS I am adding a wideband and changing the existing trans temp gauge.



The existing trans temp gauge:



The new pocket that I cut up, had to remove the back, then I fit a piece of plastic to hold the gauges




The new gauges:



I still have to do the wiring for both and install the O2 sensor in the exhaust.

Hotwire is a good little Junkie
That's definitely a lot better looking!

Where'd you get the textured plastic from? That's what I've been wanting to make my gauge bezel out of.

Cool

Thanks guys!


Hotwire, I found the plastic on eBay. The pieces I got are about 6x12" ABS, got one 1/16" thick and one 1/8" thick. I used the 1/16 for this project.

Cool

I got most of this project finished up. I redid the plastic mounting plate with the thicker material and got it to fit better. I did all the wiring and connected the lighting to the factory dash control. The old gauge was wired so the light was always on. Now the gauges illuminate with the headlight switch and also dim.





lights on:







Only thing left is drilling a hole in the exhaust somewhere and installing the O2 sensor.

Anyone have a TIG welder?
