looks good :D did you have them lazer cut or something? I'm assuming you had to have them made for you. Maybe i should ad those to your page. Also did you ever get what you were waiting for in the mail, i haven't heard?

Dude, that dash is pretty sweet! I like it a lot, how much did it run you?

I had them made through a local hot rod shop dealer. He had them lazer cut. They are 100% aluminum. It was hard to put them on though. People sell the brushed aluminum kits out there, but it doesn't look as good as the real stuff. Scott I did get it in the mail, just took forever.

I'm not a big fan of the stick on overlay thing..

But yours do look good. To me the aftermarket kits are cheap looking and after a while start peeling off. How much did they cost to have made?

Next week there will be no more open spot on the dash. The W&S Motorsports Atlanta info panel will go there giving me FrankenCougies vital signs (ECT,IAT,TOT,MLPS state,TC locked or not, Fuel pressure, oil pressure, HEGO voltage, and more)

Dr. Frankencougie, PLEASE tell me how to get or build an info panel like the one your described. The only thing I didn't see you list that I want is a gear indicator. One that tells you what gear the transmission is in as it shifts while you drive. You know, R 1 2 3 OD or something like that.

i've just started doing it myself on a 93 t-bird. a couple days ago i bought a chrome and carbon fiber automatic shift knob and put that on. and then went to lowe's and bought an 8x12 piece of aluminum and cut out a plate to go over the place where the shifter indicator and shift knob go. I think it looks pretty sweet. I plan on just doing more aluminum and carbon fiber accents around the place. when i'm done i'll have to get a pic and post it.

The info-panel also has a set of 3 remote mounted LEDs that give the folowing:
L or U for locked or unlocked Torque Converter, P R N D 2 1 and what gear the trans is really in {1, 2, 3, OD}. We will be selling them once the EEC Y cable issue gets rectum-fide. It is a very cool setup and should be available soon.

Can you remove my pic from your reply?

It's very big so i don't thnk we need it posted twice. The price is up in the air right now because we need to have a special cable made. I would figure in the $300-400 range.

Would it be possible to buy it as sort of a kit so you can solder in your own 7segment LEDs and LCD? Either way, I'm going to have one of those in my car come hell or high water...

that is a sweet read out. what years will it be available for? also will they plug into any other ford products. i have a 93 v6 t-bird and an 85 carburated mustang gt. also does this unit allow for the adjustment of these readings or just monitoring? and as for the overlay thing, i dislike it as well, wood, fiber, or metal. it just doesn't look like it belongs. is that that speckle paint stuff from the crafts section? i have seen entire interiors of that; love the look, but it seems to come off if you breathe on it wrong. have you had this problem (assuming that it is that stuff)?

Hey Dr., think you could offer that readout as a BIY kit? Or maybe let us supply our own LCD and 7segment LEDs?
