I'm going to use the Equus 8076 Speedo in place of the factory speedo and mount it to a plate in the factory location. My plan is to use the two green indicator lights (one on each side of the speedo) as my interior dash turn signal indicators. The red indicator light will be my 'idiot' light for the TBI system and I'm not sure what I'll do with the blue one yet.
Because I am using the smaller stand alone speedo that does not have a fuel gauge I am installing a matching 2" Equus fuel gauge in a plate in the center of the radio cut out with the rocker switches on either side. I read up on using an amp/speakers and iPod only setup for my music so the radio cutout is no longer needed.
I found these little LED side marker lights for inside the new front wheel wells because the Metalcloaks have no side marker lights. Conveniently there is a 3/4" hole already drilled in the aluminum.... Perfect fit!
The light switch went in easily, but I had to use a metric nut to hold it in place because I didn't have the stock retaining nut.
The horn got mounted in a "PO" hole in the firewall to close it up.
