after I was changing the color of my guage faces. I was wondering how do I get them to read right. For now I followed my wife around in her car until my guage was about right. Any help is appreciated.
What gauges are off? If you have the tach right and you have a 3.27 gear the speedo should read around 36 or so at 4K in first gear and 47 or so at 3K in second.
Don't hold me to these being exactly right but it should come pretty close. You could also try to get you speedo right by driving at 60mph and timing it in a mile and just keep readjusting it until it is right.
Good idea. Right now it is within 2 MPH. The tach I adjusted to what it normally is at idle. I took the stock gauges and sanded off the green stuff....then I painted them red with some spray paint I had. Will post some pics when I get done. If you are in the Charleston area give me a buzz and I can show you how I did it.
