(Words and photos by Mike Brooks) – The previous two articles in this series (fuel system, efi swap) featured upgrades that improve performance and drivability of my C10 pickup. It was important to me to buy products from companies that have a partnership with Bangshift.com. I’m spending my own money and want to support the people that support my friends. The final bit in the series goes from under the hood, to inside the cab. When I saw the feature here on Bangshift about the “Hot Rod Holiday Rebate” from AutoMeter, I knew it was time to take advantage and save some coin to get the gauges I always wanted. Usually my budget only allows me to buy bits and pieces over time to put an upgrade together, but by splurging on all the gauges at once I was able to maximize the rebate and shave $150 off the total cost and install them in my truck by the time the snow melts and the 2017 cruising season begins. Once again, I’ll give you the rundown of the install and show you how easy it can be done on your ride at home.
