Yeah now I have more changes to make on the dash I'm liking the angled gauge look.

I used LED motorcycle indicators from Dennis Kirk. They have high beam, left and right arrows, and a few others. Cheap and effective. http://www.denniskirk.com/drag-spec...prd/407358.sku

So after talking with the owner at New Vintage USA, I'm pretty convinced to do a custom panel with them.

I'm thinking something like this,

Left turn....4x4....Parking brake....Hi-beams....Check Engine....Low Fuel....Right turn

What lights would you guys put on your dash?

How would you get a low fuel light to work? If you have to have all seven those sound OK. Maybe a fan off if you've got an electric fan, a fog/driving light, maybe a locker indicator instead of 4x4.

Honestly not sure. I bet I could read the resistance from the sender, and when it gets to a certain threshold turn the light on.

Edit: Here's a thread http://forum.allaboutcircuits.com/th...g-light.37228/

Others I was thinking about are High Coolant Temperature, or Low Oil Pressure.
