Yea looks like where all the dummy lights are. What about those reverse glow gauges they used to sell on eBay and procarparts? If I can get one of those that would be perfect. What years was that for?

Are you planning on doing MP/H and KM/H gauges? The last pic was obviously of a Can turbo in canada. If you can make KM/H I'm in.

It depends on what I can find for gauge clusters.

I put reverse gauges on my first 1991 legacy. i just removed the bevel and it all worked pretty well. it looked a hell of a lot better, too. It was a one piece unit that had clear areas for the lights for the odometer and warning lights to shine through. I would recommend puting LED's behind the odometer section because the stock bulb looked like SH*T.

That's what I'm saying. If I can get a hold of one of these I can have these made.

To help move this along I ask for everyone to look out for the old reverse glow gauges. This will only work if I have one of those.

i looked at the picture, it's shite for reference. it came as a one piece unit, with the dimmer switch attatched to it. I took off the stock bezel and laid the new white piece over it. I had to remove all the needles first. (broke the fuel gauge, had to get a new one) after that, i put it back on, tapped the light power source and it was good to go. I really like how it updated the interior. it was also hella brighter at night.

Unfortunately, that was about 4 years ago, its in a junk yard in orlando, assuming its not been crushed already. It was a beauty, not a spot of rust (ahh florida cars) im in south carolina, next time im in orlando, ill go and take a look. Chances are that its long gone though.
