Custom Dash Guages

I'm pretty sure they are Defi gauges stuffed into S30Z housings.
That car was built by Star Road.

I think the right hand of the centre dash cluster is boost but the car in the vid appears to be NA.
Nice looking engine bay all the same 👍

I just found this.
Which would help with custom gauge mounting in stock pods. You can also look at SpeedHut for custom gauges etc..
Personally not my thing, so not something I've done much research into.
Check this thread out.

Looking Good. Pretty talented for an old guy Peter. LOL.
I have the white face conversion for the original gauges that I bought years ago from the USA. Never got around to fitting them.
The speedo is in MPH. Has anyone ever done a replacement white face in KPH to suit Aussie cars.
Ok. Back to the shed for more work.

Professional silk screening would make them look OEM.

Crikey... Don't you young long-haired fellas know anything about computers?
Scan the original dial and import it to Word. Then just use the 'Draw Tools' to position and overlay the new text and/or images.
Take it to Officeworks and have a matt finish A4 photo sheet printed ($3). Cut out the image of the dial - ask your mum to do it if you're not yet allowed to use scissors - and then attach the cut out dial to the original dial with double sided tape.
I'll email you one... provided you know how to use e-mail?

Good to see we have a worthy challenger in the older ranks Peter. Keep up the good work.

Necessity is the mother of invention I guess.
I have Photoshop and Illustrator, which i'll use to trace these out..
There is also a good tutorial here for a Mazda MX-5 cluster.
A couple of other resources:

I have custom gauges too, but mines still a work in progress.
It was surprisingly hard to get a good photo, too many reflections...
