My tach install thread

Well, i finally decided i wanted a tach in my "gauges" cluster. So i did some quick research and decided on the Sunpro FZ88R. It has a similiar look and correct sweep. As far as i can tell its only availible in the 3 3/8" inch size. I ordered it from Summit Racing at the cost of 129.99. It comes with a mounting cup and 2 brackets. Steering column mount and dash mount. And screws and instrucions obviously. No wires.
I have some pictures here that illustrate how it fits in my cluster. This tach is a sealed unit. Which means you cant take the internals out unless you cut the case. So im going to attempt to install it as its comes out of the box. Initially, it appears to fit very close. So i am going try to design a plate to go over the back of the cluster housing to bolt the tach to.
So this is as far as ive gotten. I plan to finish this in 2 weeks(dont hold you I will try to get my plate cut out and finished within the next few days. More pics to follow soon. Any questions?
