I want to install the console gauge package in my 69 SS convertible. When I take the panel off the console will it be obvious to me how to wire the gauge cluster?
thanks

Probably not, unless you have a new instrument panel harness with the console gauge pack harness connector on it - you need about eight circuits to feed the gauge pack, and all you have now is one (for the courtesy light), plus one for the shifter light if you have an automatic.

If you're not looking for an original reproduction, check out Auto Meter...they make a sweet console gauge panel that holds four 2 3/4" guages that all face toward the driver. It makes it look like the gauges are molded into the console. It fits like it was factory.
