Cool Trying to replace ammeter with voltmeter

I recently bought a voltmeter to replace the ammeter in my 69 camaro. I took a quick look but cant figure out how to acces the guage to remove it. Has anyone done this and if so what is involved. Does the console need to be removed? Thanks in advance for any input

Re: trying to replace ammeter with voltmeter

Yes, you have to take the top half of the console off, I never found a better way at least. There are a couple of screws up front that unscrew from the underside (with a short Phillips) and several down the sides. Then you need to take off the storage compartment lid, another screw under the lid and one in the back. You also have to remove the shifter plate so you can clear the shifter. Be careful as you remove it as the 40+ year old plastic can be brittle. Then you have to flip it over to get at the 4 screws that hold in the gauge pod. Its a hassle.

68 RS Coupe 355/350 TH, Detroit Speed, Hotchkis, Vintage Air, 8.5" 3.42 posi 10-bolt, MagnaFlow 2 1/2" exhaust, etc.
