Re: It Begins... AAW Classic in 72 Elky
I have a round gauge dash with idiot lights in the ends. I'm replacing them with some aftermarket gauges that look close to stock. It looks a bit hokey from the back side, but great from the front. So I have some customizing to do as well. The easy part is that the oil and water gauges are mechanical. The Volt meter should be fairly easy to wire in too. Oh, and I have a clock replacement tach to wire in as well.
I have a fair number of other modifications, ECU for the Holley TBI, Fuel pump, nitrous and nitrous fuel pump, electric fan, HEI, original aftermarket Air, and possibly an amp/tuner or hidden stereo.
Also, it's an El Camino so I have to decide to reuse my existing rear harness or wire in the add-on kit.
Right now I'm teaching myself how to crimp wires all over again. I have a professional crimper but it may not be exactly the same as the one AAW rents. It looks like I can make it work, but it may take a bit of practice to not over crimp and distort the connector.
I need to go thru my old books and see if I have an assembly manual. But, at least I have this part right. Thanks.
