You’ll still have an idiot light for oil pressure right? I assume that’s the red guy. That’d be my only hang up for putting the gauge out of your immediate line of sight. I just used one of the built-in warning lights on mine. Didn’t bother with an amp light.
I think a single indicator for both turn signals would be cool if you moved it to the center of the dash like the factory cluster. Are the bulbs the same as the factory ones?
Yep, the amber one is the idiot light for oil pressure. As far as the others red's the amp light, blue for high beams, green for blinkers (I am contemplating two blinker lights, one for either side), and a red one in the middle for the overdrive. There is an extra hole for another light. Maybe fog lamps? I know if I stick a rear fog lamp on the car (dense fog is common here) then legally I am supposed to have an indicator for it.
I've kept both the amp and oil lights because the volt and oil gauges will be out of sight. An immediate indicator something is wrong so I look at the gauge.
The lights as is are way too bright. So I'll have to figure out a way to dim them a bit. The high beam light is blinding in the dark. Maybe something slightly opaque over the bulb.
Why not put the oil pressure gauge in the cluster? And the fuel gauge somewhere else. It seems to me you’d want to monitor the oil pressure regularly , while monitoring the fuel gauge would be an infrequent check.
Thanks for all this foot work! Incidentally, I frequently borrow parts from MK4 VW's as I've owned 3 over the past 20 years, like my seatbelt retrofit.
Looks great! Warf would approve and want to use it as his starship shuttle craft.
