Newest upgrade

Hey Guys, it's been quite awhile since I updated my thread. Since doing the 4bt conversion, my next upgrade was to enhance the dash with new and additional gauges.
I wanted to keep the classic look of the 70s dash panel with the standard Oil pressure, Fuel, Temp, Speedometer, and replace the old Amp gauge with a Voltmeter gauge. And, add Tach (diesel), Boost, and Pyro (EGT).
I found a 70s dash panel for cheap off eBay, Widened the existing gauge holes to accept 2-1/16 gauges, and cut out the additional gauge holes at both ends of the panel, and repainted it.
I installed all Autometer gauges with the exception of the Speedometer. With the Speedo, I went with the SpeedHut GPS Speedometer to get an accurate reading without having to figure out the equation of speedometer gear, axle gear ratio, and tire size. It will work for me.
All gauges were installed, wired in, and all gauges work perfectly. I'm very happy with this upgrade.

Nice work, I did something similar in the '74 CrewCab I am building, I used the Autometer speedo. The 70's trucks are my favorite by far, nice looking RamCharger.

Thanks Brother. I've been following your 74 CC CTD conversion.
