Has anyone used the 66 gauge support panel that CJ Pony parts sells for installing aftermarket gauges? I'm wondering what size speedo fits in it.

thanks,
Doug.

That's awesome! I'm wanting to improve the accuracy/performance of my gauges and put in a tach at the same time, but not get away from the original look. Being 3 3/8 I can use the autometer designer black series gauges with the electronic speedo/tach combination in the center. That will work out great for me. I'll upload pics when I get it built.

Thanks,
Doug

I modified a 65 GT bezel, which is pictured in the CJ pony link. 66 bezels look a bit different. I didnt use the support, but I have one if anyone wants one cheaper than list.
I chose to modify the bezel so that I could drop the gauges in through the front. It's not an easy mod or for the faint of heart. :grin:

I did the same thing with mine. Drill out the holes and drop in the 2" and 3 3/8" gauges from the front. I tried it with the gauge support. The fit was horrible and the gauges did not line up. For $40 I expected more. Plus you can't see all of the gauge because the bezel hole is too small.
Here is how it turned out. All you will need is a decent 2" hole saw. A drill press helps too...

If I had to do it again I would use the traditional chrome bezel. It would look more factory. Oh yeah, you have to fab up a mount for your turn signal and Hi Beam lights. I just used a piece of aluminum bent into a box shape.

As a new member I seem to be coming into some of these threads late.
But If you are looking for gauges for your early mustangs. I used the JME package.
It comes with Autometer Phantom gauges and wires directly into your factory harness. Check it out!
