HDX Dash

The new HDX series from Dakota Digital is the latest in aftermarket automotive instrumentation technology. HDX takes personalization and usability to a whole new dimension while retaining your favorite features from the wildly popular VHX-series such as LED backlighting for the numbers, tick marks and dead-faced dash indicators (turn signals, high beam, check engine, cruise control engaged and parking brake). Illuminated needles and a lifetime warranty are still part of the deal as well.  These features add up to a clean, easy to read instrument system in all conditions. Precision stepper motors provide accurate needle movement along with a full-sweep at key-on, and the needle hubs are black nickel plated spun-aluminum. 

Available with your choice of black or silver alloy gauge-face styling, each HDX system allows the user to select their favorite illumination color for the gauge readings and needles, as well as the TFT message center displays. RGB LEDs are incorporated into the circuit boards for fully-adjustable display colors, allowing the user to personalize their instrument system to match nearly any vehicle theme. 

Calibration and personal settings can be manipulated with the lighted, capacitive-touch buttons integrated into each HDX system, or the available Bluetooth app for Apple and Android devices.  With the instrument system dialed in, including calibration of the speedometer and fuel gauge, the system can calculate your remaining fuel range, expressed in miles to empty. Every kit is supplied with an optional buzzer for feedback each time a button is pressed. Further, the buzzer can emit a warning tone for each reading at a user-defined set point to coincide with the dead-faced, red warning lights incorporated into the gauge faces. 

Vehicle integration through a central control box has become a calling card for Dakota Digital, and the advantages are substantial. Most notably, installation is greatly simplified; two power (constant and switched) and one ground connection get things up and running, while vehicle-harness sourced signals and sensor inputs run cleanly to their respective terminal. Supplied, solid state sending units with weather-tight harnesses ensure trouble-free operation. The control box allows for easier service, a nicer-looking finished product, in addition to an abundance of technology packed into a vintage dashboard. 

 

OPGI Console Kits 1966 to 1970 Chevelle

There are few aspects of car restoration that are more satisfying than returning a worn-out interior to its original factory fresh appearance. One area of interior restoration that has always been of prime importance is the appearance and function of a classic car’s center console. Serving as an interior centerpiece and housing for the shifter, the console is both highly visible and an essential control component. It is also one area of the interior that can really look outstanding when restored to original specs. Cars with worn-out or damaged center consoles as well as those that came from the factory without center consoles at all, will both benefit from the installation of a complete new console assembly. That’s why Original Parts Group, Inc. (OPGI) now offers complete center console reproduction kits to fit the 1966 to 1972 Chevelle and El Camino.

OPGI’s Complete Console Kits contain everything needed to restore your Chevelle or El Camino console back to showroom shape in one convenient package. Because each individual kit component is an exact factory reproduction, the console kits are guaranteed to meet all OEM specifications for fit, finish and functionality.
