    New Vintage USA (NVU) Gauges and Indicators

    Has anyone used this company? I am looking to get their indicator panel and gauge for the wagon. I really hate just having unlabeled LEDs on the dash for different functions. And, having unlabeled switches for things. It won't be super cheap I am sure, but it would be...

    Need help asap! Gauge cluster issue

    I hate for my first help request to have an urgency associated with it, but I'm in a pinch. So here goes: When I recently installed a crate 350 in my 82 MC, I used an eddy 1406 and a new hei with vacuum advance. I did an ecu delete. The voltage going to my gauges (oil pressure, fuel gauge...
