Thanks for the feedback.
I'm trying to use the instrument panel out of a '95 Buick Roadmaster primarily for the speedometer and the system warning lights. My plan is to hide the dummy lights behind hinged access panels. This instrument panel connects directly to my wire harness. May be able to insert pressure & battery gauges in the cluster, but it will be tight. Another option I'm exploring is attaching a 1.5" extension shaft on the speedo gauge to move that needle out 1.5". Then I could mount 4 support gauges in front of the '95 panel. This would provide more flexibility on placement of the support gauges. Attached is a picture of the '95 cluster and the '37 cluster.
1) has anyone else added an extension shaft to a gauge in this way?
2) would an extension shaft add to much mass and cause the speedo to not operate?
