The original bezel for a 69 Camaro has the hi beam turn signal etc. I beleive the new guages have these on the dial faces. Do you just leave in the original bezel? The blank ones from Dakota seem awfully expensive but would look better than having the original bezels not doing anything. Opinions??

This is what I have so far.



I like how this is a all in one package for the normal gauges, and all with programmable warnings.
You also get all the idiot lights ya need: Blinkers, hi beam, check engine, brake, cruse.
The LED display has a bunch of options also.
I can't wait to get install it.
Maybe I'll get time today to install the sensors.

Their website shows it uses the original bezel, but now comes with clear lenses (without the orig turn signal, etc). This is an update from earlier pics.

It looks to me that you would re use the facory bezel. The plain bezels in the pic posted above appear to be an additional $269, if I'm reading it right from the link provided. that drives up the price considerably. I would not want to have the factory bezel in place if I was getting the hi beam , turn signals etc. from the face of the guages. It just wouldn't look right. now we're getting into a Covans thunder road pricing territory and then a DSE panel and guages are not far off.

Just wanted to get your guys opinion or see if anyone is running them yet? I think I am going to order a set in January, but with the blue lit background.
We put a 57 Dash in the truck and used the gauges and they are badass.....work great with a ton of features!
