You do need to be a bit careful . eventually you will overload the rheostat
on the instrument cluster.  That was the "bonus" I called attention to on
the CoupeQ cluster . it has a factory amplifier to make sure you don't
overload the rheostat.  


When I have a chance to check out whether it will be possible to fit the
panel in the Abt expansion bay I'll take some pictures and notes .

I found that by wiring the illumination bits of the aux gauges into a
dimmable circuit, you can easily dim the gauges as well.  I used a VDO boost
gauges from Summit I think.  Standard 2 1/16th and you can choose from
boost, boost/vacuum and different levels of boost.  They will also have the
colored  bulb caps so you can match the dash color.  At the time they had
black face that looked just like factory.
