that turned out real nice

Cheers, Ken
Yes, and yes. I'm pretty sure there are 3 3/8" combo gauges out there somewhere, but I'd imagine they'd be hard to read (at least for my old eyes)...

Here is my 41 Willys dash before I finished it off. I'm on an early cruize Mar of last year waiting for some of the guys to catch up.

The 6 gages are Autometer Artic White. The black face is the AFR gage. (Innovate). A little more to the right not shown are the trans temp and vac/boost gages.

Autometer has outstanding support. I had a problem getting the electric speedo to calibrate. They had me try everything. Finally they gave me a new unit and it worked perfectly. I can't say enough for their support and patience with me.

The gages work very nice. They are easy to read in the daylight but a bit dim at night. I drive a lot at night but actually I normally dim my truck lights too so it really isn't a problem.

My wish is a matching set, speedometer and tach to replace the factory ones still in place.
Problem is Autometer do not do speedometers in Kilometers/hour.
I called them and they told me itīs not going to happen.

Another to check out are VDO gauges. I have the smaller 3-1/8 speedo and tach plus the other 4 'standard' gauges. So far all are working as expected. I did check the combo sets - but decided they didn't look right in my car plus were too large in diameter for the dash.
