New Member From Michigan

I'm a new member and currently working on my first project which is a 69 Camaro Conv 396. Just finished a brake conversion and replaced al the control arm bushings and ball joints. Currently struggling with hooking up a console gauge cluster without a harness soon after that I will be replacing the dash fuel gauge with a tach. I'm electrically challenged and need all the help you all can provide. Please point me in the right direction. )

Welcome. What part of Michigan? Here's a few pics of the back of the console gauges to get you started...

Re: New Member From Michigan

If you have a factory gauge cluster this harness http://www.camarocentral.com/product_p/wir-224.htm and this console wiring would make the job as easy as it can get. http://www.camarocentral.com/product_p/wir-231.htm The first harness listed ties into your fuse box and has a connector that plugs into the console wiring harness. If you not to familiar with electrical wiring I would never attempt to make up a wiring harness for the gauges. One wrong wire and you could ruin (zap!) the gauges.

Re: New Member From Michigan

Welcome aboard Wayne...when you get to the fuel gauge/tach replacement, you'll need the following template to cut the dash panel. I just did the same update (tach install and console gauge install)!

You're welcome. You're about 1/2 hr from me. I'm pretty decent with electrical work and always looking for fellow Camaro lovers, so if you ever want a hand, feel free to give me a holler.

Re: New Member From Michigan

Doug, How will I know if I need both or do I just look at the conversion harness?

I took a quick look at Doug's links. It looks like you would need both unless you already had the factory connector. The factory connector would come out under the ash tray on the trans hump. It sounds like you're starting from scratch though which would mean you would need both sides of the equation.

That's an understatement... Those are some pretty pricey wires.
