i got on ebay the other day and found a bezel overlay that covers the surrounding around your gauges on the gen 1's. it looks kinda cool....



i'm wondering if anyone out there makes the white faces for the white face gauge look...also, if they do, is there anyway to go about making the needles red instead of orange??? thanks in advance.

yeah i'm thinkin about getting one...it'd be cool to sharpen up the interior on my truck...i just went out to the salvage yard and finally found a new shift lever...the nice thing is its about 2" shorter than what i had before and it makes a world of difference when it comes to making good shifts...i think i'm going to sandblast it and polish it to give it a chrome look...then find a cool knob for it

i just went outside and rippped that overlay off my truck, and painted it with this ace hardware Aluminum colored spray paint. It looks just like the pic you posted, Ill let it ddry and post some pics of it when I slap it all back together in a little while

well here it is, Im very happy with it. It is a little bit more shinny looking in person. Looks kinda dull in some parts of the pic. If you do it, Just dont forget to mask off where the warning/indicator and turnsignal lights are.

I have the overlay.. Will look pretty sharp when I decide to fork over about $100 for white face gauges.. but you can design your own gauges at the following address...As a matter of fact, I got this address when I got the overlay and decided to check it out

http://speedhut.com

they have some really nice options such as glow color and such.. worth the money if you're looking for something unique.

Now That's Awesome!!! You'd better believe that'll happen before I put the guage cluster back into my Dakota Project! Thanks for the idea!

There is another site you can go to, it is procarparts.com. Here you can get white face gauges for gen I dakotas with the tacho gauge. I don't beleive they make them for the dakota with the huge fuel gauge, next to the speedo. Anyways check them out, it goes for around $40-50 shipped. Hope this helps out as well.

On a side note, that sprayed bessel looks great, nice work.
