Thread: 355 Gauges

    355 Gauges

    Can any of the build veternas advise me which is the best set of clone instrument gauges that copy the F355 gauges? Is it VDO or is there something better or cheaper? And, can the gauges be connected directly to the Fiero wiring system or is an adapter of some kind needed to properly calibrate them?

    Thanks.

    The closest I have seen to OEM are the Classic Instruments Hot Rod series

    I have no idea if this is the correct wiring harness or not:

    I did quite a bit of research on this topic. I found the cockpit series from VDO to be the best all around selection to use. I have them in my car; they have done well since 1998.

    I thionk I better clean out the little bits of trash on my carpet. This looks pretty sloppy.

    I have figured out a way to make your own face plates onto the VDO gauges.

    Hi all,

    Take a look at the link provided below... There are a couple of other linx in it that show pics of the 355 guages that a not so very cool, I guess, forum member had made..... Again they were done by classis intstruments but the ones I am talkin about look identical to OEM ferrari 355 guages.... The only thing missing from them is the ferrari horse..... Though be prepaired to pay alot for these guages too.....

    I have dealt with Pete and I would not recommend doing business with him.

    Hi all,

    Funnywheels is right!! Pete being Modena the forum member... But if you still want the guages they make you can call them and ask for the replica 355 guages, I think the person pete dealt with is named Kevin.....

    Kevin would be a better choice, although we don't really know him either. But we will provide the benefit to him at this point. Keep us posted.
