Greetings all. I have another question again. Are there any vendors that make or have better looking instrument clusters than the stock ones on a 89 TBirds?
The reason why I ask is because my friend use to own the current TBird and he had changed the cluster from the original factory install to an aftermarket version. The problem is simple, I don't like the aftermarket version he installed. It's the version with the white background and "green" "yuck" fonts. Plus I can bearly see the warning or "idiot" lights in the cluster at sunlight and the speedo reaches only 120 mph. I prefer 150+ gauge, "god knows if I will reach those speeds, I just might", he he.:D The white face is fine but I prefer it with a nice "blue" or "red" fonts and I can at least see the idiot lights.
If you guys have suggestion on custom cluster jobs as well feel free to throw your ideas my way please.

:)

Head over to the TCCOA and search their forum on the words white face guage.

You will find tons of different ways to do the gauge faces. This is a common mod and a couple people can do some very strange and artistic things. The latest trend is the Indiglo type gauge faces.

Here are a couple links:
