Gauge Cluster

I'm posting this in here because I'm trending this '69 build towards a more pro touring look. I'm going through my interior and thinking about going with the DSE dash insert. I'm looking for some opinions/photos of others and what gauges you guys recommend going with!

Re: Gauge Cluster

5" Speedo and 5" Tach
2-1/2" Guages

I made templets out of poster board to lay them out.

Re: Gauge Cluster

Route 66 Motorsports put out a pretty sweet dash like DSE but cheaper, I'll try and find some pics.

1969 Camaro Z-28 with a 2001 LS1, FAST 92mm Intake & TB, Comp Cam, headers, Cirle D Converter and 12 bolt moser 3:55 gear. (Didn't want to but had to sell)

1969 Camaro Straight 6, (Starting all over again)

All I could find from Route 66 Motorsports was a billet aluminum insert for the guages and you use the outer plastic factory guage cluster. Is this what you are talking about? It was like 425.00 just for the insert.

Re: Gauge Cluster

on a budget so i'm doin the newvintageusa 69 series speedo/tach in place of the speedo/fuel and bought the center console with gauge cluster

just doin the speedo/tach, not adding the temp/air/fuel since it will be on the console....has a nice vintage look but is new and LED...less than 400 for the 2 gauges.

Re: Gauge Cluster

How about a stock cluster with 5" gauges added?

Re: Gauge Cluster

I wanted the pro touring look with the stock dash. I disassembled the 5" Autometer gauges and installed them in the stock location with just minor cutting. A couple of simple brackets bolted the rear of each gauge has held both the speedo and tach in place w/o any problems.
