Here's a couple of pictures I took tonight, so you all know what I'm talking about.

Something my Grandpa called the WeeOne. I had to drag it out to get the Baja out.




Nightime pictures so sorry for the quality. (Day wouldn't make the subject look better.)




Guages I've been installing. Now to save up for a large tach for the center. Just have one more cylinder head Temp too to finish. Does this ever end?




Still not sure if I'm on all four, but I regapped the plug and it seemed to have helped. Need to do more test runs. Just don't want to tick off the neighbors with the loud exhaust!

Nice looking gauge package. You mentioned that you need a tach. If you want one that matches really well, look on Ebay for one from an old 1974-76 Porsche 914 (four cylinder). VDO made them and they look almost exactly like the VDO Cockpit Series. They fit nicely with just a tad bit of trimming. That's what I put in mine and I got if off of eBay. I have an almost identical gauge set-up as yours without the head temp and ammeter.

Actually it might be a 70-73 which is almost identical. I think either one will fit, actually... as long as you get one for a 4 banger.

I just searched ebay and craigslist and came up empty handed. There's a couple on ebay, but come with the set. Don't need the others.

Yep. That's the one. Be patient. It took a couple of weeks of looking to get mine. I think I paid 65 bucks or so. Maybe it was a little more. Maybe 85.

... Less than 10 bucks and has the black ring in the middle, rather than the silver one. It'll match better.

In fact... There's two of them on there. The more I think about it, the more I think I should buy them both 'cause they're so damn cheap. I'm not going to bid on them if you want one, though. That would be rather uncool. If you want one of them, let me know. Otherwise I'm going to buy them both. It's just too good of a deal to pass up.

Damn you're good. I didn't see this the first time.

The one you linked alread has one bid so I'm going to try and find the other to see if it has any bids.

As far as bidding with me, it's fair game so I don't mind. I might even buy it from your junk pile someday. Smile

I bid on the 2nd one and so far I'm the only one.

Haha... I noticed the Name on the #1 tach and saw that #2 was not bidded on at the time so I bid on that one. Looks like we'll both win. (Ebay handle = Creatspeak)

I won't bid on yours if you don't bid on mine. Smile
