you sir are correct. Some time this summer i decided to pull the old suede from the dash to replace with the correct material. I learned that it was 250$/yard.

Then decided to remove the old glue and deal with it.

The hanging switch needs to be replaced as it doesnt work all the time :/

Been trying to get cluster screws for the last 5 months but they seem to keep getting "lost" every time i order

afr gauge got placed there for the time being until i mount it in the glove box and finish tuning.

Most other items in the interior are working, have working interior lights, heat, sunroof and windows all work.

you can take the dash out and just put your gage cluster on the steering column mounts and than weld some studs to the trans tunnel and mount your ecu with some grommets to absorb vibration. looks really race and gives you tons of leg room.

I like that.

But. . .

I think a long way down the road it'll look super dated like shag carpet in vans from a certain era. . .

Just get one of those molded dash covers and put the right screws in the cluster. Looks like the the aftermath of a gang bang in there.

So screws never showed up.

Hope Sunday i can put the new coil and wires on.

Have a Walbro 455 now but not sure what the best way to install it is.
