This page describes the main gauges and control consoles. The Electronics page describes all of the on-board radios, computers and GPS systems.
The original instrument cluster was removed and I built a custom Gauge panel using all Autometer gauges from Summit Racing.
The gauges include:
Lights & Strobe Controls
The Light Control Panel was custom built and provides access to 18 different devices. The first 10 switches control different off-road lights; including front, rear and side facing lights. The lights range in power from 50 watts to 210 watts. The remaining 8 switches control Whelen warning lights, a combination of comet flash strobe and rapid rate flash halogen lights. There is also a Whelen control head to manage the warning bar light. There are 4 whelen power control units mounted in the back where the rear seat used to be.
Also attached to the Light Control Panel are two Autometer fuel pressure gauges. The first fuel gauge monitors the primary Barry Grant fuel delivery system and the the second fuel gauge monitors the Holley fuel pump pressure that acts as a backup and provides fuel for the nitrous system.
The center Control Console was also custom built and is divided into two sections. The first section houses the remaining gauges. There are five gauges:
The second part of the Control Console holds the rocker switches that control the following four systems functions:
Overhead Console Controls
There is a Light Intensity and Radio Function Control Console mounted on top of the roll bar, next to the radios that control Whelen intensity lighting functions, flash patterns and control radio signal output locations, such as connecting the CB and/or scanner to the intercom system or to the internal speakers. The intercom system is also mounted in this console.
