    I used acrylic plexiglass to make my cluster. The graphics I ordered have built in diffusing properties.

    First thing I'll have to do is to edit the speedo part to match my 85mph speedo..hehe.

    I was looking back and couldnt see where/if you said how much your final print costed?

    Should be a nice cheap project to do over the winter while i build up more funds to get more parts for the car

    You also have to edit the sweep pattern. Basically you just use the given background and indicators. Everything else would have to be from scratch.

    It cost about $200 for the print from Black Cat Custom Automotive.

    81DMC...

    What is the format of the graphic file (just a PNG)? What software did you use to create it? Any special rules?

    Thanks

    It's just a .ai file. It can be opened and managed using Adobe Illustrator, and every object is categorized and named already.

    The special rule is that you must give Rodolfo credit for his time and work

    Hi Rodolfo,

    I'm 100% on board to follow your lead for my gauge cluster - a huge lead ahead. I was planning to use the stock gauges and just repurpose them with EV related information, but your work on the gauge cluster and graphics provide a much better route for me.

    I got to load up the .ai file into Inkscape tonight, but I was unable to figure out what font you had used. Since I can build the underlying gauges (my cluster will just receive CAN message from the main computer) I can mostly use your layout. But, I'll need to re-number some of the ranges (my temps will red-line at 180) and I'll replace the GAS related icons with EV related ones.

    Thanks
    Jeff

    Glad to hear my design is helping others!


    Anyways, I used Rustproof Body for the DMC logo and I used Bebas Neue for everything else save for the km/h lettering.
