Google.com or babelfish.altavista.com can translate the text for you. The text that is in the JPGs you'll have to type in by hand, though. The results won't be great, but they'll be fairly understandable.

If you need to have the original ones, then that's all that will do. But if you're making your own console, you can put as many gauges of whatever size you like into it. Going larger than stock will likely make them more readable, which isn't a bad thing.

Just make sure that the gauges you get look like they "belong". Probably white-on-black, with a typeface/font similar to that used in the tach/speedo/etc. White illumination, red needles. You can use any gauges you like, but I think it will look better the closer to "original look" you can reasonably get.

I found some nice gauges at advanced auto, but not the clock.
Do any of you guys know where to get cheap gauges, and maybe a clock? Thanks dave

seems like it was a work firewall issue...

well, we traced it all out and made a cardboard mock-up of the center console. I decided to drive it with it installed for a couple of days before I committed to building a real one.

I guess my foot just comes out too far - I hit the console every single time I had to push or let off the accelerator.

So, after all that work, it looks like a no-go on installing one.

Now, I need to figure out what to do with my 6x9 speakers I was planning on putting in there.

If you did, and that didn't help, try simply cutting the back out of the console. Or perhaps moving the whole thing aft a couple of inches. Or both.

There are a lot of ways this particular cat can be skinned.

Here ya go -

Both pieces ya see.

Drivers side:

Now how it looks installed:

As you can see it is "hinged" part of the way down to fold toward the passenger side. While the passenger side remains straight, the driver is angled to clear the loud pedal foot. There is a 2" spacer that the sides are tacked together underneath the dash.

ain't technology wonderful (for Miles)
