okay i did the digital to analog swap in my 84 n/a awhile back...well i bought a new dash out of an 86 and the guy gave me the guages w/ it (white face as opposed to the orange gay ones i have now)...well the new guages don't have a place for a speedo cable...does it run of of the speed sensor under the hood? why isnt there a place for a speedo cable on these guages? whats the deal?

i dont mind at all it will match my dash that way....come on ANYTHING but that orange fecal matter that i was forced to put in my dash in the first place....hey, they came w/ the new dash and i have all wiring and center console guages....i dont mind the glow at all i think it'll be so much of an improvement

it might work, but you'll have to add a few things. Most importantly being the wiring for the speedometer.

also the trip meters are screwed up on my old cluster....thats why i can't just slap on one of those reverse glow faceplates...what wiring do i need to replace or install? i've got the new cluster here and i want to put it in my car....
how can i get from here (gay lookin crappy speedo) to there (nicer less gay speedo)? and dont say "replace all wiring, etc, etc" red..im serious and i want to get this done within the next few days....i still have the speed sensor and the new guages came w/ all the in-dash wiring
