Hi,
Anybody have any suggestions on aftermarket gauges? Specifically tach and speedo that fit a Stag 4 in opening and a fuel gauge that works with the Stag sender.
Thanks,
Dan

Not sure if you know about Speedhut....
[www.speedhut.com]

Amazing customizing available. Not sure about which senders you want to be compatible, but Speedhut's electronic gauges are programable and some come with senders.

Hope it helps.

Steve

Steve,
Thanks, just checked their site according to the dimensions of the gauges 3.848 inches see pic.
My gauge openings are 4 inches. The dash is being re-veenered as we speak so I'll have to measure again when I get them back.

The speed hut gauges are awesome. I've been using a set for a few years now and have had no issues.... They customized them how I wanted them and I love how they turned out

Finally got the gauges here they are mounted in the newly veneered Stag gauge cluster with 12 coats of tung oil.
I opted to go with a mahogany grain i like the way it looks when finished in tung oil and everyone does their LBC in burled walnut.

They look great Dan. If it were me, I think I'd swap the fact and Speedo. Not sure why, but somehow seems more natural for the sweep to be from the outside toward the center.
