Re: 1986 Turbo Z: Whats involved going from digital to analog dash?
the trim bezel for the digital dash has a shroud on the back of it that extends inword towards the top of the digital cluster
the 84-6 digital cluster having a flat plastic face with no lens
the analog cluster it;s self extends outward towards the trim bezel and does not need the shroud as the shroud is a part of the body shape of the analog cluster with an angled outward at the top , clear plastic lens
so the trim bezel changes..
now , the 87-9 stuff is different yet again
granted the trim bezel is flat without the shroud , but , it's flat for both style second generation clusters
but wait .. there's one more thing
the 87-9 trim bezel differs at the left side where the headlamp switch is
the two openings at the left side of the 87-9 cluster won't match up if swaped into an 86 .. without changing the black plactic headlamp switch surround plate
(it just clips on)
so a swap to a newer cluster needs the cluster , either / or and the trim bezel & headlamp switch surround
