Has any one used or seen the digital gauge panel the Summit sells from Nordskog? It looks like it would fit in my sweep dash.

Also I am going to buy a console for my 72, who make the best one?

It measures 13.8" x 3.25" for the one with the tack. but they do have a more narrow one with out the tack, it's 11.3" long.

The website lists it as $520 while summit has them for $300 in my last catalog.


I did my custom gauges for just under $300 and I went analog. Analog will cost more. Those elctrical gauges are very easy to re-produce acurately, but they charge what they do because of the market value. I could build the above linked picture for what they are charging for it. -that's sad, but they might just get rich.

I think that I am going to go with AutoMeters Phantom gauges much like you did.

I didn't mount them. I found a Monte dash before I got that far. But, you can e-mail Phil Harkins, aka Uncle. He's done this conversion and is running it in his car right now. But I do have the template whenever you need it.

It's sized to take the place of the existing speedometer face, and the only gauges you can use are Autometer Street Rod series.

I'll toss in my effort.


I removed the idiot lights and have a spare template for what I did. Damn machine shop cut holes the size of the gauges and not the "insert" diameter.


Keep it thin. the dash is actually concave some.

Mike, I really like your dash with the Phantom gauges. I would like to mount my gauge panel recessed in the dish some what like the speedo is now. Did you use the 3 3/8" speedo and tach and the 2 1/16" smaller gauges?

Randy, how did the panel you made for Phil mount to the dash? It really looks awesome!!

The difference between Mike's setup and the one I made the template for is that Mike's setup calls for removing the idiot lights and the housing in which they're installed, and the one I made retains that housing so you can retain the the stock turn signal indicators. Therefore, the one I made must use the smaller Street Rod series gauges.

I think they're actually 3 1/4 and 2 1/16, but you can find specific information at this site, www.autometer.com and click on the gauges and then the Street Rod guages button on the left hand side.
