Yes, I know... I'm not Canadian, and I've never lived in Canada... but the metric gauges seem soo much more "European" looking...

So I swapped out my gauges for Canadian gauges. I'm pretty pleased with the way it looks. I'm restoring my car, but mostly focusing on things that I can't change later. So... I know my steering wheel is saggy, but I don't want to change that out yet since I've got more important things to worry about. You can see the entire progress here: http://www.pontiacperforman...et/car87FieroSE.html


I'm pretty pleased though. For one, I don't mind the Celcius, and the fuel gauge is vastly better than the American one. The American one (for those who have never compared them) says in huge block letters "UNLEADED FUEL ONLY." In 1987, I don't think you could even still buy LEADED fuel. So... I certainly don't need that on there.

I don't remember if there's any difference whatsoever in the aux gauges, but I'll probably change those out too so the needle fading matches (these are better than what I already had).


The odometer is still in US / Miles, but the speedometer is in Metric / KPH. All I did was take the Canadian gauges, swap out my odometer bar from the one that was originally in my car (standard, not metric) and then swapped the odometer motor from the blue metric one, to the black standard one.


I know, it's kind of ricey, but it's not because I'm only swapping OEM parts.
