The week is going fast and Thursday is here once again. That means it’s time for us to celebrate another editorial throwback. Each week, we jump into the way back machine and open the vault that houses our vast collection of articles. In this Throwback Thursday, we’re taking a step back in time to bring you an article that you guys might have either forgotten about, or might not even know exists. Whichever the case, we are certain that you will enjoy this editorial travel back in time. So, without further ado, let’s take a look back at an article that gives you some much-needed tips when it comes to installing aftermarket gauges in your classic hot rod – Rebuild Tip Of The Week: Wiring Tips With Dakota Digital.


Tip one: This is not good.

We taked to Greg Karpe at Dakota Digital gauges, so we could get some insight into what you need to plan for when upgrading to a custom gauge cluster. Greg had some great tips, and the main point he wanted to make was, if you are unsure of anything, double-check before damaging your vehicle or your new gauges.

In the original article, he also lists some bullet points that will help you keep your swap in order, and by following the outlined suggestions, upgrading your dash should be an easy, enjoyable upgrade you can do yourself.


Soldering your connections is always a good idea.

One of the most important things is to make sure you have all the components necessary to complete the job. Running out of wire, or only having one color will cause problems down the road. Likewise, if wires are improperly secured you will end up with issues down the road. The most important piece of advice however, is to allow yourself enough time to finish the project, do not try to rush through it.


There is more to the story, and because of that, I thought it a great piece for this week’s Throwback Thursday flashback. So, find out how Dakota Digital can help your hot rod when you check outRebuild Tip Of The Week: Wiring Tips With Dakota Digital.
