    No posts for all of 2019 – I must have been too busy to spend much time on Sammy.  So I did just make a change that I would like to share since it is a big improvement.  I installed a larger speedo and tach.

    For comparison, here is an old dash picture.

    The classic black script on white face looks like something from way back when. Tried zooming in but can not see a manufacturer mark on the face What make are they? Is the speedo a GPS model or is it a mechanical one? Unfortunate that there is not enough real estate on the dash to fit the two additional gauges you hung below the dash but understand the need for additional monitoring of performance. When I replaced my dash i opted to exclude the panel instrument cluster panel so as to accommodate oil pressure, oil temp and ammeter gauges. May still make a replica of the panel in the future but it will have to be larger than original

    Instruments are by Classic Instruments, Classic White series.  Speedo is electronic as is tach.  Speedo can be adjusted for most any signal from the trans and tach can be set based on ignition type and number of cylinders.  But they were not cheap.  Decided to splurge since I sold my other MGTD.

    By the way, my old speedo, tach, fuel, and temp gauges are available.  They are also Classic Instruments, but are the Vintage series.

    Dale Schumacher has been looking for a speedometer…

    Ric that looks great but I wish you’d post bigger pictures so we could really see it.

    With time on my hands and having pulled center dash to put in new instruments, I decided to tackle a job that I know I should not do since everything works in the car.  But it’s too late now.  I have been cutting into the wiring harness so I can make a wiring diagram.  When this car was put together, if a item was being wired and that color ran out, another color was just spliced in.  I might have green for the hi beams, but when the wire gets to the switch, it might be brown.

    Have found many extra wires and parallel ground wires.  I have eliminated duplication when possible and re-routed some wires to clean up engine compartment.  Next is moving a couple relays in engine compartment to under dash.

    When I removed the GM V6 from the donor Camaro, I also removed lots of wiring and some mechanical items.  One item I have is the underhood fuse and relay panel.  So I am attempting to use this under the dash.

    I don’t recall wiring your car.

    You have just forgotten – I thought I recognized true craftsmanship in the choice of colors.

    @ricrx you have a photo of the instruments you pulled out? Do they have a gold or chrome bezel?
