Well, i'm installing all the ghia stuff into my S-Pac, and that means the LCD cluster too...however, the S-Pac sports cluster is better (for obvious reasons) but I can't pass up the novelty of the LCD Speedo...so here's the idea:

Remove the doors open/closed panel....

and stick battery/oil pressue guages there. Is it possible? Where can I get guages that will fit in there? would it be possible to take apart one of the ricer guages (that you mount on the a pillar) and put the internals behind that panel? How much should I pay for said guages?

You would be better off sticking with the S pac one. The speedos on the fairlanes are s**t as, thats why they never did them again

Oh and why dont u want the standard volts/oil gauge?
And yeah it could be done easy as but its making it look good and standard thats the hard bit. I think i payed $60 for my oil pressure.....that was a speco one. I think it was $60?

yeah I would say gut your S-Pac cluster for it's gauges.. me thinks you shouldn't have any problems, but I've never ripped open a cluster before sooo... Let us know how it goes!

yeah, gos-pac, or there is a member who changed his EF cluster by removing the speedometer needle, added a digital number in the middle as his new speedometer and this worked - he kept the tachometer and other four gauges the same. Maybe someone out there can point you in the right direction about what ive just mentioned. Good luck.
