Covan's Gauge kit for 69 Cam

Anyone have experience with the Covan's gauge kit (Autometer Sport Comp gauges) for a 69 Camaro? It's seems pricey but is it worth it? How tough is it to install? Thanks.

Re: Covan's Gauge kit for 69 Cam

I know what you mean, I thought the price was high too.

It's worth it for sure. It's a little time consuming, but nothing real difficult.

Here's what you get for the 69:



Let me know if you have any more questions.

I put mine in 3 yrs ago. I like it a lot. Take your time, solder and heat shrink (Screw those cheesy crimp on things, they will ALWAY fail. It's just a matter of when) Take the steering wheel off to give you the room. A good wire schematic was also very helpful.

That one looks like a Detroit Speed dash.

Here's the one I'm going with on my latest adventure. I like the sport comp gauges but these were kinda old school look and still Autometer. I have a ways to go till they get installed.
