I just finished fitting my gauges in my 65 Fastback and was so excited I just had to show everybody.

That looks GREAT! Good job! What has to be done to get the speedo to work?

Thanks Guys. The gauges were all Autometer - $400 approximately. But the speedometer and sending unit were $250 of that because it's a programmable electronic unit. A mechanical one would save you about $160. The smaller gauges were all 2 1/16" and I had to drill out the bezel using a forstner bit. The speedo fit right in. To get the speedo to work, you put the sending unit on the tranny where the cable normally goes and then run wires. It programs by pushing a button, then driving 2 miles and pushing the button again. I wanted that feature because I changed gears in the 9" rear end and have 17" Cragar SS rims on the car.
Now, If I just had my motor built!!

That looks great!!! What is a forstner bit? Is it absolutely necessary? Where/how much to get one?

Thanks

A forstner bit is a special bit that woodworkers use. It can drill holes where there is already a hole even an off center one. They won't work on metal, bit work really well on Wood or plastic. Any woodworking store or good hardware should have one although one that big isn't normally found in stock at a hardware store. You might try http://www.northerntool.com/cgi-bin/ncommerce3/ProductDisplay?prrfnbr=17485&prmenbr=6970 or www.northerntool.com and search for Forstner. It will at least show you pictures of one. They are very handy to have around.

Looks ek. I am planning on using those same gauges on my wifes 65 Fastback when I get to that spot on the restomod. I am going with the set up with the tach. The set up w/the tach (6 gauges) is made by JME enterprises.

I'd at least like to install a voltmeter. That amp needle is as immobile as a cigar store Indian. At first, I didn't like white face lenses but am getting used to them. That dash cluster looks sharp.
