fit a mid-series cluster to the car - either a fairmont or fairmont ghia one. change the oil pressor sensor to a sender (lol i think thats the right way around) and you're done! the volt gauge works straight off :wink:

far too much work dude, especially as the mid-series clusters can be had for pretty cheap, and they work straight off! :P

nope!

Gli & Futura = low series
Fairmont & Fairmont Ghia = mid series
Fairlane & Fairlane Ghia & LTD = high series
