Custom Mounted Instruments - Uses Original Bezels


From Dakota Digital

Dakota Digital's unique custom shop can help you achieve your digital or analog instrumentation dreams! Our craftsmen can rebuild your OEM instrument cluster with a Digital Vacuum Fluorescent Display (VFD) System or the newer Hybrid Analog/ Digital VHX system using your stock (OEM) gauge housing for your car or truck. From basic projects like color-matching the instrument system gauge face to your paint or interior color, to a one-off custom build into your existing instrument housing, our craftsmen can make it happen!

If you like what Dakota Digital currently offers in the VHX Direct Fit series of gauges but want a custom color background to match your interior, company logo or add a graphic, we can help with that also!

Because the scope of a custom project, the ideal first step is to contact our custom shop with your idea, drawings or renderings. Once a project foundation can be put in place, a price quote, lead time and renderings can be determined before turning our crew loose on creating a show-stopping set of instruments.   

Please prepare the bezel or instrument housing as you would to finish the car (i.e. paint, chrome, polish, etc.) before sending the bezel and housing to us. If you have any questions about your dash, please contact us to discuss them.
