Hey guys.

As some of you might know, ED's didn't have tacho's or voltmeters, or oil guages. I'm not so worried about a tacho or oil guage at the moment, but what I do want it a voltmeter. Seeing as I run a carpc, stereo, neons, etc.

My problem is, I don't exactly know who to wire this voltmeter in. Can anyone help me out?

Much more satisfying to mod it to a different cluster get in touch with FTG for all the needed bits :D
