Black is for ignition, middle is for fan, last is for wipers. Why for the wipers? Because the switch went out and never fixed it until one day it was raining and i needed it and had a toggle switch laying around. Never got the right switch but hey it works. Thanks for the compliments. Does anyone else have anything they want to show off?

Hey ghetto do you have the cups that angle the gauges towards the driver on those gauges? Even if it doesn't count it still looks good.

Yea I do have those cups on there, and man does it need them to be viewable. I put my Cyberdyne tach in the same way, but it's in the woodgrain part and to the left of my steering column.

I'm kind of kicking myself for buying a digital tach, watching the rpms climb on something that reads to the tens place in your rpms is a little hard to get use to. But I'm sure it will grow on me, as much as it cost it better get easier to look at and should be shifting the car for me at 6000rpms. lol

So i guess the cups work well then. I was looking at auto-meter's Sport Comp series gauges and was planning on getting some of those cups. I just didn't know how well they worked.

I am assuming that a "BushCutter" is the Canadian word for a Chain Saw?
Pretty funny though!
Later,

Looks good but the chain looks a little dull.


HEY GHETTO....take the carb outta the box you might get it running better Or at least open the front end of the box for more air intake.
