I have used a 6-gauge set for the last four years in my T. No problems. Senders that come with them are accurate. Easy installation. Speedometer is programmable. Good looking at a good price. Would buy them again.

Thanks for that feedback. I was wondering the same thing. There is a local guy that makes a dash panel that fits my 36 Packard 120 and has the cut out for the 6 gauge system. I was hoping it would be a decent gauge for a street rod!

Just about 99 percent of every product on the market today is one in the same which is: You get what you pay for.

I have a set of the Shark gauges. Made by the same people as Dolphin. 1 year old so far and no problems. The only complaint I have is the speedo is internally lit and the smaller gauges have a removable bulb in them. As a result the speedo is a slightly different light color from the others at night. A small issue, but for the price I can live with it.

I have a set that I've had for about 4 years. They work fine. Instructions are pretty good. Customer support is very good to excellent.
