    Default CJ2A build with a difference

    I am busy with a CJ2A, that is to be a nice driver/toy. Not a authentic vehicle.
    So I have a pretty butchered chassis, but totally usable.
    New re-manufactured body panels.
    So now the piece I presume you guys will frown at
    Land Cruiser 4spd H50 gearbox and transfer.
    D4BB H100 Hyundai engine.
    Original diffs, but with LR discs in the front.
    It must look nearly authentic, but be a friendly driver.
    My question.
    I am collecting spares. Looking at using a Toyota Hilux pedalbox and booster.
    Looking for a 6 unit gauge set.
    Speedo
    Rev counter
    Fuel
    Temp
    Oil
    Probably volts
    Where do I start?

    Nice fun project.

    I would have thought loose gauges would be the way to go?

    Yes, I do want loose gauges. But I want electric/electronic gauges. Something that I can calibrate.

    But they must look Old School. Something like this even, but in km/h

    $500 and up. And I don't know how they will handle rain.

    Will probably make some kind of little drop down shield, but it will be at Hillcrest, in Kzn. Humidity and salt.

    They say beggars can't be choosrrs. Even basic Instruments are flippin expensive. I paid nearly R2k for a VDO boost gauge last year.

    I'm not sure how much room you have behind the dash, but I have in the past bought an air filter housing for a longish flat filter at a scrapyard, cut the lid open and fibre-glassed that to the back of an instrument panel, th3n fibreglassed the air outlet tube closed and mounted a few glands in it and used that to protect instruments. It worked very well.
