HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 8:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone has "modernized" their dash by putting new modern gauges in their 944. I have an 84 so I would have to remove all of the cone gauges to put more modern ones in. But I was thinking about possibly starting with a whole new faceplate and adding gauges that would work with both the Porsche engineering and the GM engine. Like getting a new gauge that would still run off of the cable going to the front left tire, and getting new PSI, Temp, and others that run off of the engine. If anyone has any ideas or knows of a company that will fabricate something like that, let me know.

Thank You,

well it don't know of an actual company, but alot of metal supply places will often cut outlines if you make it worth their while. so if you had a basic outline you are a buddy's drill press and a hole saw away from a custom gauge panel. if all else fails your local machine shop might be able to blows the holes.....

Oh jeez! I was almost stationed at Ft Campbell as an Air Force member (shudder). I have an '83 and what I did was go to HomeDepot (Lowes is good too) and picked up some stainless steel sheeting and traced the irregular shape of the cluster onto the sheet. Located some aftermarket gauges (Autometer in my case) and traced my gauge/indicator layout onto the sheet. After cutting/drilling all of the various holes for the gauges, I got one of those 2" sander attachments for drills and basically made a circular swirl pattern on the steel (it made the panel shiny too). After that I 'rattlecan' clear coated the panel.
I am very happy with the way my panel came out (also very happy with the price). Give it a shot yourself before farming it out, your panel is only limited by your imagination.
