Shane,
Just got this quote for a dash from NPD.

I have attached a quote (FL312564) containing the parts you have inquired about. Shipping costs would be estimated at approximately $163-219 +/-. While we make an honest effort to provide a price range for shipping, the actual charge is only known once the order is placed, pulled, packed and weighed. The actual charge is passed on directly and may vary from the estimate given.

No, The later model cluster has those large plastic tabs sticking forward. I made the same mistake and now stuck with it. Had to buy another one.
You need this one:

I wouldnt buy a used dash again. You'll find that half the instuments will be clapped out or they wont last long. Plus try and clean the dial faces and the markings will come off with little effort.

Do you know if your car had a U14 gauge option? If not, then buying that style cluster will require a few wiring mods. Not hard but just thought you should know.

This guy is meant to have great stuff. All rebuilt and warranty. Pricey but you get what you pay for.

Another option is to make your own panel and put some aftemarket gauges in it.

Good Luck, they are different! Once you get them have close look at them and you'll realise the difference. You will need to modify and make boxes around where the indicators are.
Dont know your skills but you might be able to do some cutting and pasting to make it all work. And just hope it all lines up nicely when you start putting your dash back in the car.

Personally, Id resell the cluster and start again.

Do yourself a favour and start trawling NastyZ28.com forums. All the info is on it regarding everything you need to do.Those covens dashs have known fitment issues. You might find something better. You may also be able to buy it cheaper elsewhere.

And what ever you do, dont buy anything from ecklers. They used to be good but now utter crap. You wont get your stuff SENT for weeks. Their part prices may seem ok but they are now stocking many low quality parts and you ge what you pay for. I will never use them again.

Yeah dont worry about the money. If you had bought the car in the USA and then shipped, paid taxes it would have cost you more than you have probably spent.

Congrats on the parts. Who'd you buy from? Just put my spoiler on and love it. Only problem is it loves kissing the road, speed bumps and curbs.
