    What gauges to use?

    I would give Classic Instruments a call regarding their new Bel Era III package. It looks amazing and for original looks, no one is even close. I have had great luck with mine and their tech support is amazing. Thanks Classic Instruments

    Welcome to the site!

    Is this an ad for Classic Instruments? If so it should be in the Classifieds section. Are you employed by them?

    Personally my opinion at this time is that the Dakota Digital VHX series gauges are the best on the market in terms of great looks and modern technology. They are backlit and use stepper motors like new vehicles, and have some programmability. The VHX pricing looks to be cheaper than CI too.

    What do you feel makes the Classic Instruments gauges better? I don't even see a Bel Era III setup on their website. I think the Bel Era II gauge cluster is fugly.

    That's not bad looking if you want an updated stock look...a lot better than the Bel Era II set. What technology is used? Are the needles lit? Is that a mechanical odometer? No tach?

    If you're from Classic Instruments, which it would appear that way since you used the name. Why not just come out and say what you want without trying to beat around the bush?
    Don't worry, no one is going to strong arm you for cash like Otis does. However you may not get any sales either.
