El Camino gauge cluster swap?
I've searched the archives and can't find too much info. My 79 Camino is a bare bones issue with the rectangular speedo and idiot lights. According to most of the people on E-butt, the SS type dash (gauges & tach) will fit from 78-87. Well......I just picked up one out of an 84 Camino in the local boneyard (cheap!) BUT...... while my dash has the wiper switch on the dash cluster, this 84 has the wiper switch on the column. Anyone know if ALL the gauge type clusters don't have provisions for a dash mounted switch or do I have to find a 78-79 dash cluster? The housing has a 1981 date molded into it even though it came out of an 84 and seems original to that car.(Factory gauge calibration slip fell out when I pulled the dash)
Also,anyone tried a color change on one of these? My interior is buckskin and this cluster is maroon.Kinda clashes.
