Digital Dash into a Analog G' Body
Putting a Digital Dash in Daytona or "Why the hell would I want to do that???" (Part Deux)
By: Tim Ross
My greatest accomplishment in electronics has been installing a Digital dash from an 1989 Lebaron into my 1988 Shelby Z. Don't get me wrong, to some it seems easy.. But I have no background what-so-ever with electronics...
Jeff Barnett annd Neil Emiro accomplished this several years ago in their respective cars, and with my first Shelby Z, I always throught of doing this.. And with my Second Shelby, it was time! As with Jeff's project, the big advantage is no real limiter on the digital speedo; it goes all the way to 255 MPH. Like it'll ever see that right?
I obtained the digital dash for nothing from Bill Countie. I had a stockpile of analog clusters from trips to the boneyard. I also cut the pig-tails off these cars too (Just in case)
As many of you know, the digital dash cluster has the same dimensions as the stock 87-88 dash unit in the Shelby Z.
