Default Any premade aftermarket gauge setup for 1998 camaros?

I've never been happy with the way the gauges look in the camaro, and then after having the corvette, and the mustang with mycolor, it made it even worse.

Today I happened to be flipping through the channels, and saw them working on a ls1 camaro, and they made a custom cluster, with speck gauges that had adjustable colors and a great looking design.

All I've ever really seen are white overlays on ebay.

Or is the only choice I've got is to have a custom layout made to fit whichever gauges I want to go with.

I see a lot of people do regular autometer gauges which looks really cheap to me.

I saw that same show. It was Gears with Stacy David. The gauges he had were beautiful. Adjustable color pallets with RPM color tweaking.
I wanted to look them up but forgot the name of the company...you saved me there. Thanks!

The one I saw was on horsepower tv, and they used the cluster from ad fab designs.

Yea the cluster is 175 from them, the gauges(peck or however they spell it) were nice quality gauges. Black bubble face that was really clean and modern looking. But I was looking over the peck site and couldn't find anything on those gauges to just order and get them on their way here.

Son of a bitch, I pieced it together, and the tach and speedo are 400 each, then the 3 smaller 2/16th gauges are a little over 211 each. That coupled with the bezel from adfab make it come out to over 1600 dollars. Not figuring shipping.

The setup they had in the car on the show was the best I've ever seen inside a 4th gen, but goddamn that's not worth it.

Guess I'm staying stock till I can justify it or something.

6LE has bezels for the camaros, and I see these overlays(I think they're overlays) in the photos for the page selling the bezels, but I can't find any where on the site selling them.

Do they not sell them anymore or something? These are pretty modern looking and would be worth the price of the overlay, and another 40 for the bezel IMO.

Well here's the thing, the last group purchase was technically THE last one because 6LE was planning on closing shop. However, 6LE said that some things are happening in his life that actually may end up being good for the fbody community... so who knows, the overlays may not be ended forever after all. No idea. Maybe ask him.

You can still get the bezels from him it looks like.

i know him personally and the overlays are done for now. they had major issues with the place that made them for him and as of right now GP 12 was the last one. OP email him and ask if he has any buybacks. also pm Sommer86, i believe he still has his first overlay for sale.

Yea i was gonna say, you might could find someone who is selling theirs. I know a few people went through two or three different ones, so you could try asking around. Theyre definitely worth it, replacing the stock overlays that look like they came straight out of the 80s.

Here's the long story short:

We DO NOT sell overlays right now (first because we were closing shop, now because the company we got them made at sucks ***** COMPLETELY now)...

We DO sell the bezels still (click your year/make and interior)...

Come September I'll know better where my feet are landing and be able to make an announcement then. My vague explanation right now is I am juggling a lot of things and I was going to drop the business but some other stuff may be falling on its own and the business will still be around.

IF SO, McNord and I are in talks to dump a $hit ton of money into buying the equipment to make overlays COMPLETELY in house...
