Headlights are there. Door ajar is not to my knowledge.

Trust me they are there. You only see them when they light up, just like factory gauges.

I agree, clock should have been analog and possibly even made the position modular so the gauges could be picked from a selection of other options.

Clock
Boost Gauge
Alternate Temp Gauge

Just to ramble off a few...either way, I agree it should have been analog.

Yes, other options instead of clock would have been nice. You could display time in the info center in speedo/tach instead as an option. Or any modern stereo has time in it's display anyway. I'd have a fuel pressure or oil temp gauge in place of the clock.

The 180 dgr sweep on the small gauges is cool.

Actually been waiting for these but now that I see the price and that stupid clock I don't think ill bother now. " corvette " = price times 2. How does a full set for a Camaro cost 800 and these cost 1500.

I hope they develope a quartz clock in place of the digital clock, would make a huge difference IMHO. I do agree they are pricy, but take in concideration that they have to develop a cluster that fits a certain application that want fit any other car and bring it to market, then sell enough to pay for development and you get high prices. The only thing is I hope they take note and change a few things that Vette owners want or at least make it a option. Another point is this set of gauges is perfect for the computer operated engine swaps and there is multiple upgrades for the gauge set. I think Josh pointed this out in his first post. This gauge set requires a full reading of the DD website to fully understand what it is capeable of. Mark

Ok, I am going to address the clock. Somewhat...

That is not just a clock. It is a message center that can be used with the BIM expansion modules that will allow nearly unlimited flexibility to show what you wish in that readout.

ie. Boost, inside/outside temps, wideband, compass, OBDII interface and the list goes on.

Hopefully those options will appeal to most of you. I will definitely relay your concerns to Dakota Digital for them to take into consideration.

Here is another option for you guys.

I just finished these. They are not the universal ones, I set them up for the 68-77 application. I designed some mounting brackets that are very simple and it make the install super easy. They also fit behind the stock lens. The best thing is they have the blinkers, highbeams, brake, and engine lights. They have all the things you need if you have a stock car or if you have an LS swap application they will work great for those cars too!

Check them out. And tell me what you think. I can also powdercoat the bezzel black if you like that look too.





If you guys buy the gauges from me I will set them up for your car and I will throw in the mounting kit for free!

Price is $800

I can only assume that they are more expensive because there are 7 different gauges and that means more circuit boards, more materials, etc....

I have discounted them the best I can to try to help you guys out.
