Dashboard mayhem!

I saw something a while back I thought was pretty cool.

In a friend's EV, his odometer only showed the EV miles! (about 800 or so right then)

Since I am planning on trying to eventually mount some nice looking meters, maybe it was time to take the dashboard apart. (Especially since there isn't even a controller in my car right now!)

I yanked out the instrument panel and yanked out the speedometer.

Note to self - the car had this many miles on it.

It looks like I should be able to pop out both the gas meter and the temperature meter and replace them with volt meter and ammeter or some other useful instrumentation.
