Mach 1 Center Gauge Conversion to Newer Style Modern VDO Gauges

Well after long hard thought of determining the best course of action for the Mach 1′s gauge dilemma, I decided to convert the existing center gauge pod to accept more traditional newer technology gauges. I am running with the VDO brand primarily because they match the existing Speedometer instrumentation and the bezels are shallow and do not stick out like a sore thumb. This was done by carefully using a Dremel high-speed rotary tool and etching out the center dash panel to accept a 2-1/16″ gauge. I used the backing hardware supplied with the VDO gauges to attach them securely. Check out the video and pics.
