    P body gauge differences...might do colored gauge overlays for these too!

    Okay, so I think the dash faces for the P bodies are all the same, but I noticed that some years have the odometer reset to the left of the speedo and others have it at the bottom of the guage. Which years have what...ALSO

    I want to purchase one of each from our forum, or get freebies....not working is fine. Any of you guys might be interested in this? Looks like the highest mph number on the face would only be 135....kph versions might come later too if I can get some of those.

    Thanks,

    Angelo (Matchbox) Taylor

    the early gauges 87-89 are metal faces and not backlit, with reset knob to the left of the speedometer
    later ones 90-94 are backlit, with the button bellow the speedometer

    Thanks for the info....so, when you say back lit, that means the lighting for the mph markings come from the back of the gauge through the face...like my 95 Neon? If that is the case I might only be able to have them made for the 87-89 models. Thanks again.

    GREAT, you do that and I will send you two sets of the overlays as payment. What colors would you guys like to see? So far I have the following colors for the L-bodied cars:
    KPM in Silver or Black, MPH in Silver, White, Black, and Blue....see this link:

    All I need to get started is a set of guages, not working is fine...87-89. The one person that submits a set to me will get two gauge overlays for their trouble. This thread will be the only medium on this...no pms. The first person that says they will send it will be the person that the overlays will be sent to....they also need to be honest and actually send the gauges to me.

    I will provide my mailing address at that time. No back lit gauges please....

    Okay Turbo Joe....my mailing address is:
    Angelo Taylor Racing
    12555 Lantern Rd
    Fishers, IN 46038

    No one else will get two free gauge overlays for the P Body unless I request another cluster if Turbo Joe deal falls through. Het T J...they do have the tach in them, correct? I can send the cluster back to you if you want, but then you would get a single set of overlays instead of two sets. Your free set will be done in Silver with black numbers.
    Thanks!

    Re: P body gauge differences...might do colored gauge overlays for these too!

    So I took the gauge package apart and took the individual gauges to the printer. I explained what I wanted, extended mph to 145 mph and the tach to 8000 rpm. As soon as possible I will post up a photo of what they look like and start taking orders. The first few are in now and consist of:
    4 in black, 6 in white, and 6 in silver

    If any of you want another color, LMK here so I can coordinate with him.
