I found this on EBay...thought it was pretty cool.

It appears to be missing some things that we have though...like the vehicle information space.

I didn't say I wanted to do it...I just said it was neat.

I would be interested in hearing what Twister has to say about it, as well as ease of installation and compatablity with SC'd Bonnevillles

It'll work with your boost gauge, just don't be surpised when your volts jump like mad when you gun it.

Easy install really it'* on ebay cheaper.

LOL.... yea... you could say it'* because you've got a 1000amp alternator.. hehe

I think the blue would look good "maybe" if everything else was blue... like a VW ... my friends Jetta is all blue/purple inside.

Personally I find blue distorting to view at night... and I prefer the "pontiac red"..

Oh yah...everything else would have to be blue too....no question about that. And I love the VW interior lights myself...can't say I noticed the distorted thing.

Red IMO is better defined, but less of a strain on the eyes then green for sure. There'* reasons that the army uses red inserts in flashlights @ night.

I can flick my interior lights on now (all red) and it doesn't bother me at night. Don't even need Neons, the under dash lights are cool enough
