Instrument Panel

I have a 84 Camaro with the gages that light up red when something is wrong. I want to swap those out with gages that will give me a actual reading. Any suggestions?

The easiest solution is to swap a complete instrument panel from a car that has gauges, and then add the right sensors (temp & oil pressure) to the engine. On some vehicles its very simple, since the wiring for gauge and non-guage is the same for both vehicles. However, you will need to check that on your car.
