OUTSTANDING work on the morphing!
Thanks. As to the gauges link...not my cup of tea. I can't stand the digital gauges...too hard for my tired old eyes to read at a glance. That'* why the Cyberdyne FP gauge was in the parts bin in the first place. Now it'* just covering the hole till the analog gauge gets here. A piller pod is also not in keeping with the sleeper theme...nothing to tip the victim off. The car is an 80'* fashion statement (right down to the Garfield cat in the rear window.) All I need to find now is an old Pink Floyd sticker for the other side of the back glass or perhaps a "University of Smith & Wesson" sticker

One thing about the picture. The camera used a flash. The difference between the black surface of the original gauges and the matt black trim rings on the round gauges is not as severe as it looks in the photo. The panel has a fairly uniform look to it when you are sitting in the drivers seat. I'll try for a better photo without using the flash when the vac/boost gauge gets here.

thats is some great work... did you have a FSM to know what you were doing, or just lots of testing? 10/10 for effort and success!
