Have a 68 Camaro. My gauges are shot and looking to upgrade to Autometer Electrical Gauges.

I am doing away from the MPH and RPM gauges in the dash and want a custom 6 gauge piece to replace there.

Looking for SPEEDO, TACH, WATER, FUEL, OIL, VOLT.

What do you have in yours for custom? I don't want my gauges all over the vehicle like they are now. Looking to clean it up. I don't have a console and not really wanting to do a console either.

Pictures if you have them please with a quick synapse of what it is and where you got it from.

Money doesn't really matter.. I know I am spending over a grand for this.

Thank you so much guys!

Not ready for my setup just yet, but am leaning toward NPD instrument housing for 3 3/8" tach & speedo (160mph) with (4) 2 1/16" gauges. PN C-9743-02B black face, PN C-9743-02A carbon fiber face or PN C-9743-02S brushed aluminum face. Nice, compact very visible. Just a thought. You can install whatever your taste is for gauges. I do like the cluster w/tach and tic-toc clock I have but no console and would prefer clean. I was considering a pillar gauge setup but none I am aware of fit or have 4 instruments pods available. Good luck.

I had Autometer Ultralite and Ultralite II gauges in my car before I switched to the Dakota digital VHX ones. I really like the backlit LED lighting that the Autometer II series had. I used a Covan's dash and added LEDs for turn signal and high beam indicators.

I have a Classic Dash Panel. I bought the carbon fiber dash panel. Then I order the gauges from Speedway Motors. http://classicdash.com/product/1967...omplete-6-gauge-panel-with-auto-meter-gauges/ http://www.speedwaymotors.com/Auto-Meter-1302-00408-Chevrolet-Five-Gauge-Set,42261.html The gauge set didn't come with the Tach so I ordered it separately. I liked the white face gauges and the Chevy emblem on the gauge face. I also purchased this wiring harness to make it easier to install. http://classicdash.com/product/1967-68-camaro-gauge-wiring-harness/

Thank you everyone. I ordered up electric cobalt gauges from Autometer and purchased the panel from SS396.com in carbon fiber.

Ill take pictures once it is all installed.

So Ron where did you find the new gauge package? I think it looks really nice :thumbsup:
Thanks! Classic Industries sells them. They're made by New Vintage USA.
http://www.classicindustries.com/product/camaro/parts/*c95221.html

They're on sale now for 25% off by the way. $629.99-$472.49.

I used my original gauge shroud. The gauges don't come with one, just so you know. I wired them myself. After a lot of thinking, planning and notes on the instructions, I went for it. I NEVER wired gauges before and I did it in about 60-90 minutes. BUT, my car already had the Autometer set up and a painless wiring system in it so I think that made things easier. If I myself had to start running wires I'd have paid someone else to do it. The new Vintage gauges used less than half of the wires the Autometer gauges required.
