I got the gauges installed last night and all was fine until i turned the dash lights on. When I pull the head light switch the right turn signal light comes on faintly. the left side blinker works, but the right side stays lighted and blinks about every 20 seconds.when I turn the light switch off all works perfect, got to figure this out before i can fiinish.

This looks sick! I now know what route I'm going with gauges... I can't get over how clean that looks. You did awesome.

How did you mount the radio plate? I ask because the PO cut the hold out, and hacked the plate behind it to Hell

the dash in mine was hacked too. there was about a 1/8" all the way around. I made 2 indentical plates with 3 holes put one on outside of dash and 1 on back then put the gauges in and sandwiched the dash inbetween them with the gauge brackets. I will look into making some of the plates for everyone

That sounds like a solid idea. Whats "AJ Heating" about? I think I've seen a truck with that on it somewhere.

I'd be down for a set too by the way. I have a long road before I can start swapping in better gauges but this is definately on the list.

drove my truck for the first time and everything works good. The gauge I was hoping that worked was the air/fuel. It works ok, I got the idle set at optimal and can see it lean out were I have a flat spot so I can fix that hopefully. all in all, better gauges then I had and not better then some. I got what I wanted, and what I think a stock dash should have looked like. As long as I dont get bombarded I will start making and shipping some peices if anyone wants one, no special orders i dont have a shell to go by anymore. just send me a PM, thanks everyone.
