    Goofed around trying to see what I could do for instrumentation. I really like the Dakota Digital VHX series and I think I may be able to make them work with the OEM bezel. It will be a while before I try, way more stuff between here and there but when I pull the trigger I will share the results.

    I've seen your posts on them, they look like a good fit but I prefer the analog gauges. The ones I really like are made to mount in a 5" hole so it will be a bit of a challenge.

    Went to buy a set of LDO seats for a friend and ended up buying the car along with it lol. Is there a hotline for maverick/comet addiction?
