Did it without removing the dash. It's not as bad as I thought. The toughest part was growing the balls that allowed me to rip apart my triple meter. It was more difficult to shred it all than I thought it would be. Don't be like me and drop a few pieces behind the dash At least they're not rattling. I'll post up more later.

Water temp sensor isn't hooked up yet, so the gauge is reminding of that. It'll be going into the upper radiator hose with the help of Z1's adapter. Sorry for the shitty cell phone pics



Here are the remains of my triple meter. May it rest in pieces:

This is what I used for my gauges as well

Just wanted to add this to the thread.

Speed nut/clips make this mounting method much easier. You don't need to figure out a way to hold a nut on the underside

It looks a lot like the 370 triple meter, so Im assuming it's on the CAN bus. To be sure someone should look up the wiring harness for it in the 350 FSM and see if it has CAN lines in it. If Nissan didn't change the ECM CAN id from the 350 to 370 it "should be" plug and play.

... of course it's all or nothing. You'll have to take the entire unit if you want that screen. You'll have to figure out how to mount it

Great points. I really miss having the digital speed read out like on my 350Z.

I'm assuming this bracket holds the gauges so you don't have to make up hardware to hold the gauges in place?
How much are you selling it for?
