Dash Conversion from sweep to SS gauge package
I was looking at Ground Up's volume 13B catalog and on page #139 they show a 1970-72 Super Sport dash kit. They say if I am converting from a sweep style dash they "have me covered" with the kit. I would like to go with the SS dash but do not want to get into a money pit with extra parts needed to complete the change-over.
Here's the question what hidden things should I look for, they want $1745 for the kit and it includes:
Dash Carrier with side vent assembles, dash lens, ash tray, glove box door, steering column cover, dash housing, steel backing panel, speedometer, tachometer, clock, temp/fuel gauge, instrument sockets, printed circuit board, OEM or modern ATO type dash harness with fuse box, and OEM forward lamp harness or engine harness.
I realize I'll have to buy sending units and little things like that but is there anything big?
