I did this. I'm gonna make the 4th the ECT. But then later get a HPOP pressure and fuel pressure gauge too. I guess I don't NEEEED those, but why not?
Auto Meter

I bought all my stuff from Summit. Was consistently the cheapest on prices. Packed nicely, and got a $20 off coupon for next purchase.
After the 4 pod is filled, I was gonna get this: Auto Meter 15003 - Auto Meter Instrument Cluster Bezels - Application - SummitRacing.com
Also this was the paint I needed: Colorbond 121 - Colorbond Leather, Plastic, and Vinyl Refinisher - Overview - SummitRacing.com
The Summit pods are unpainted. I think DieselManor has the painted ones. I've seen em somewhere anyway.

If you get the kind I posted they match stock VERY well. Colors, night color, and even brightness if you get the green LEDs to put in them. They come with wimpy incandescent bulbs.
