I waffled and dawdled, but finally decided to do it. Here's why. I don't know when Ford started to make these molded plastic casings for the gauges, but they also started to use a flexible plastic film printed circuit, which is a bit intimidating, even for me. I used to repair our Army tanks, as well as build a couple of fuellers. Well I found a guy on line who did it on his 1987 T-bird coupe (even more circuits and idiot lights) and was generous enough to post the whole process and schematics. He made a paper template, laminated a metallic finish and rewired the printed circuit. And posted the schematic wiring diagram. Lucky for me that its not all that different from mine (the circuit). The rest is a bit trickier. JR's 1987 T-Bird Turbo Coupe Custom Instrument Cluster link: http://jr.rustecat.com/articles/cluster/index.php At the bottom of that index page is a direct link to all the pictures and the wiring diagram (schematic.jpg). http://jr.rustecat.com/articles/cluster/images/ I'll post my dash as it is tomorrow, but this is kind of where I want to get, without the plastic frame. Luckily I have the old one from the 1978 donor sedan to play with. I have a 3-spoke Futura steering wheel, and a rare 'On-the-tree' Cruise/Signal control. I've also got the variable/intermittent speed wiper control. This is his (Jr's 1987 T-Bird Turbo dash) result: I have to tinker with the Transmission Indicator between the big dials and the turn indicators, AND the two adjustable AC vents. The Donor didn't have the right hand vent. I'm using some cheapie gauges for now, Volts, Water temp, Oil, and a new Vacuum gauge (unless I score one from a Torino or Cougar at the JY).
