Custom gauge fit R34 GTT only!

Recommended Posts

Custom gauge fit R34 GTT only!

Hey guys,

I've been requested to do a DIY on the gauge install in my GTT. ill try to include as much info as possible!!

 

BTW i don't take any responsibility for anyone's attempts and if you damage anything you have no one but yourself to blame.

 

Now, We've all seen setups when the aftermarket gauges are just jammed in, honestly that would drive me up the wall. 

To remove the factory gauge cover holder

- pop out center vents located under factory gauges, use a plastic popping tool not a screwdriver. unplug hazard light

- two screws hold the gauge pod in, after undoing these you can lift the unit and you'll find one connector for all three gauges

- on the inside, two screws hold the gauges inside the pod

Once separated this is what you're left with

- Remove the 6 screws on the front to take off the plastic cover

- I cant remember how many screws hold the actual gauges, remove them all

- Now that its separated, this is whats left.

- Next step is to pull the aftermarket gauges apart.

These are shadow (defi copy) 60mm

- Using a tiny flat blade, had to bend out the bezel edge so the face could be removed

Bezel, Glass and gauge pulled apart

60mm gauges are a snug fit, all i did was align, pressure fit all three and hot glue holds it all together

Power, Earth, ACC and Illumination all can be tapped from original harness from memory

To finish it off, i ordered a new plastic face from Nissan. think it was about $40 AUD

Final Assembly!

Good job!

I've got a similar setup but didn't wan't to dismantle my genuine Defis so mounted them on a support and they just sit behind the triple gauge pod holes:
