A while ago I switched out the Cluster in my car with a 300m cluster. Not really a fan of the 300 cluster style but hey it was 20 bucks at the yard.
When I customized my shift bezel I lost the shiftier display.
So since the old cluster was autostick ready I got a killer idea and tore it apart. I removed the shift / mileage display PCB. I was going to only remove the shift display but I would have to run too many wires in the dash and would make things complicated. I also don't want a second mileage display ether. To remedy this I decided to buy a couple of IC sockets, looks like i'll need two 6 pin and a long 80 pin. A Pref board. Two RJ45 connectors and three feet of CAT5E cable. Not to mention a few feet of 16 gauge primary wire.
Already sounds complicated I bet but in all it is simple. Desolder the shift display from the PCB. Solder on some primary wire to the desired length. Solder on the IC sockets to the Pref board. Run the primary wire to the Pref board. on the display PCB solder on a RJ45 connector. Install the display onto the Pref Board and install it to the desired location. In my case here.
The rest of the old PCB will be tucked away under the shift bezel. Then run the Cat5 cable to the cluster pod on the dash. From there im trying to figure out how to splice into the cluster. I might have to fab up a adapter by using the pigtail end of the old cluster's connector and such.
This looks like it will fit. Use two of these.
and one of these pref boards
Hard part is mounting the display. Going to try plastic welding some standoffs and screw it on from the underside. Might have to end up playing with some Kittyhair fiber glass as well.
