I've been looking and at random pictures of the M2-1001 online (very few available actually), and realize that I really like the looks of the gauge cluster in them. The tried and true classic look. The proper roadster look.
At any rate, I'm waiting for some stuff of mine to sell on CL, and once that happens, I want to find an old cluster that I can pull apart and custom fit a new panel with some nice aftermarket gauges, something like Stewart Warner, VDO or possibly even Smiths. The Smiths ones will be a very long stretch.
With the SW line, I'm looking at either the 6-piece Wing series or 7-piece Cobra series. In the Cobra series, I wouldn't use the Amp gauge.
With the VDO line, I'd use either the 6-piece Series 1. The only thing with these is that they say something about a Ford or Chevy transmission sender for the speedometer.
Anyway, I'm just wondering how difficult it would be to do this. I've read that the NA cluster is actually quite basic and can be tapped into straight from the two wiring harnesses that plug into it. IF I do this, I'll take my time, make it look M2-1001 stock (or at least as close as possible) and have it so it is pretty much "plug & play".
Now I just need to find that NA cluster schematic again that I saw last night.
If any of you have done this, have more information on it, links, pics, whatever, please let me know.
Many thanks in advance!
