    hmm....good question....now that i think about it....it would be all screwed up....unless they already thought about that and put an extra gear in there or something to match the stock speedometer

    The speedo is a 1:1 ratio, so it works, just a matter of adapting it to the Autometer end. My Florida 5.0 kit came with the adapter.

    I've got a question I can't seem to find an answer to anywhere. What do the Autometer guages look like in the dark? I perticularly interested in the Phantom and Pro-Comp guages.

    And on anodizing that aluminium, plate: I've been working with a lot of aluminium parts lately and I'd probably just give it a light sand blasting and then anodize it, and then seal the anodization but not dye it. This will keep the glare down but still look sweet and won't oxidize. The nice thing about anodizing is that it creates a structured, protective coating of oxidation that is 4x stronger. =]
