      Thanks guys! I was really worried that the 2 1/16Ē gauges wouldnít fit in the space. But they did with zero space left. Crazy how things work out sometimes. Yes they are speedhut gauges. They say on their website it takes 5 weeks, but I received them in less than 3 even with custom printing.

      I also used the stock zl1 intercooler pump and bracket. Itís a really well made piece because of the rubber surround, the pump is basically floating in rubber, when the pump is on it transmits zero vibrations. Anyway, I mounted it on the drivers side frame. Hereís some pics for reference. I believe I had to reclock the pump on the bracket so that it could face in the direction I wanted.

      Those gauges look killer man! I love your out of the box thinking with that. It looks like a modern interpretation of the 67-68 gauge surround. Can't wait to see more.

      Thanks Ryan! I agree, itís all coming together and really looks like it all belongs. The new Mercedes interior design is very retro.

      I also ordered some turn signal indicators to go in the cluster:

      And of course a check engine light:

      Not much of an update, but I have been wrapping up all the wiring. I also finished the gauge pod. It came out great. Iím super happy with it. Looks very oem.

      I think Iím going to have the interior guy come make door panels, recover the dash and glue in the iPad holder so that they will be all ready after the car gets painted. I also donít want anything to get scratched. I know most people do interior last so we will see what the interior guys say.

      That looks great man! I loved the Speedhut gauges that I had in my 1976 T/A, and they look right at home in that cluster. Do you plan on using those butt crimp terminals or is that for testing? If you were planning on using those butt terminals for good, I'd suggest using non-insulated seamless barrel terminals with a high quality shrink tube instead. Or better yet, do something like a Delphi GT 150 connector so that you can quickly disconnect if needed.

      I was planning to use them for good. They are only in turn signal, high beam and Check engine light. Why do you not recommend them?

      X2 on those butt connectors. They can be unreliable. Non insulated seamless with high quality sealing heat shrink is the way to go as recommended above. Or a quality connector.

      Just now zipped through your project and about the same time started on mine, and you definitely went deeper and more creative! Cool!

      Thanks guys! Hereís the gauges mounted and the color scheme of the interior Iím going for. I also a ordered the BMW 4 series door panels so the interior guy can utilize the door pulls, door handles, trim, speaker grills, etc.

      Is the bracket supposed to mount to the outside of the firewall support (facing tire) or the inside firewall support (facing engine)?
      I thought the same thing when mine return to from paint shop because I didn't know. Los correct and your build is awesome.

      Thanks Jason! The orientation is so weird, once you get the inner fender on, those bolts are inaccessible from the drivers side. Why would they do that?
