it is supposed to ne held in with each side fitting into the groove, but I need to see if it actually does.

Go ahead and try it out. We will just sit here and wait.

LOL that wouldn't be pretty :)

So on a related yet different subject, I am looking over the Dakota gauge cluster; now to put this into prospective, I already built one cluster with auto meter gauges, then changed my mind an bought about $900 in Speed hut gauges; so I can

A) keep what I have and make them work as intended (build a new mounting platform for them or
B) sell all of what I have and buy the Dakota set up

Now option B would be easier but to be honest I am not real excited about the gauge faces and less so about the color of the illumination (white, blue or red). Nothing against them at all, however for what I am doing I really prefer the speed hut design, however making a new mounting plate for them is going to take some effort. As I type this out I think I am leaning back to option A....

Decisions like this that make it hard because you're going to be looking at these gauges every time you drive.

Exactly! I am going to try and work with the Speedhut gauges as I prefer their look and the fact that they have the green illumination I prefer. It is going to be a bit of work but what hasn't been with this car yet.. :). I do like the "drop in" aspect of the Dakota set up but since as you point out I will be looking at them all the time I think I will prefer the SH ones. Another aspect of the Dakota set up I am less than excited about is that it is a whole unit whereas the SH gauges are individual, so if I need to change one for some reason I can do that.

I'll watch you, if you do a good job I'll send you mine to change out.  :stirpot:

Yea on decisions...
I am partially along on one for mine and as I have seen all these iterations from cc members I cannot decide to drive forward as initially intended or toss it.



And BTW still  :popcorn:

As soon as I can get the engine compartment painted, the black painted on the fenders, hood and spoiler, and the car color sanded and polished, I will work on the gauges. I will post some pics of course..
