I'm still pretty new to the Forum though I comment here and there on posts, especially Oldsmobile related (definitely not biased). But I'm not a fan of how the 3 gauge cluster is setup in my Cutlass and would love to see how yall have been creative in how you've made yours unique to you. So Let's see them gauge setups!

I gutted my Monte's gauge bezel and made removeable aluminum inserts for my gauges and mounted those with Rivnuts.
I also moved the radio down and added 3 gauges there and then installed a 2 gauge pillar pod for my nitrous gauges.
IMO the GP has the best dash layout for gauges but I wanted to make what I had work plus my dash is mint.
I also kept all of my factory idiot lights in place and working

Here's what I did on my Malibu. I didn't like the factory 85mph speedo that was always pegged on the freeway. They make several aftermarket gauge sets for your car that still keep a factory look.

I'd definately like to do that to my '79 malibu one day..... never understood the 10Krpm tach, the 8K tach would do, but the price of that abs plastic shadow box alone. woof!
