Hi I fitted there VHX in my 67. I had also fitted a new wire harness from AAW so it made the install very simple as they supply fittings for factory or aftermarket gauges. The instructions with the kit are simple enough to follow and is for adapting a factory harness. I am pleased with the result and like having all the cars vital stats right in front of me. Good luck Mark.
Thank you. I have to stop reading these posts, it's costing me too much money. I've been thinking about getting a new set of instruments for quite some time, After reading your post and looking into it some more, I ordered up a set. Tried to justify the purchase with excuses like, my tach quit working and blocks the view of the speedo anyway, my direct oil gauge leaks and gets oil fumes into the cabin, the five gauge cluster over the hump is ugly, etc.
I have a hard time seeing my speedo especially at night, and since the thing only has idiot lights for warnings, I have a five set bundle of gauges below the dash above the hump, rather hard to look at those while driving. I've looked at New Vintage, Auto Meter and building my own, but the Dakota Digital seems to offer the most.
I had to take the $ out of my air conditioning fund, my wife is not gonna like that when she finds out.
Just doing the install now, I'd like to use the original lens as well, does look better than the DD lens, but it's pretty cloudy/scratched up. Anyway of polishing them clear? Quite the schmozzle of wires under there with 50 years of pruning and additions, something tells me the sponge carpet underlay isn't stock.
Got mine in, had quite a time finding someplace to put the control box. Looks good and works well. Even with my not as good as they used to be eyes I can see the gauges perfectly. And a bonus, for the first time since I got my drivers license 55 years ago I have a clock in the dash, pretty expensive clock but a clock non the less. I'm happy with the gauges.
