New Metal Monkey SVT gauges!

I saw these in a pic of a ST 170 last year and I had an itch ever since. I emailed Metal Monkey in the UK and I got them to produce the SVT overlay out of their ST 170 overlays. They flipped the oil gauges for LHD, I changed some dummy lights around, and they added the SVT logo all free of charge. I did get a discount for having them created. They said they’ll add the SVT gauges to the site. They weren’t cheap but, there aren’t too many options for SVT overlays and this is the last real mod I’ll do to the car.

---> Metal-monkey.co.uk and they already have them for the regular first gen Focus. Now on to the pics…






I need to bust out the tripod...

Not going to lie... I was hesitant against doing white faced gauges and sticking to the stock black/grey look of my factory gauges but those look sweet! Wonder if they can custom make a 99-04' mustang guage plate.

Yeah I really like them, I was amused to say the least when I got to drive home last night. It's weird not having huge atomic green circles staring at you Lol. they aren't as bright as the rest of the interior because the SVT el glow backing isn't bright. I can see them fine at night, the and ST/SVT are lucky to have the el glow for even lighting.

I have a Scanguage that shows all the parameters, and the oil gauges have bumpstops in the motors so they were the easiest; I thought they'd be the worst because I have no other reference for them. The speedo was frustrating, but I got it set better than factory now.

Oddly enough they have a V6 mustang cluster, the tach and speedo are off (120 mph).
