Gauge scans

I was perusing the digital version of the owner's manual and found out that I can pull objects from the file, including the very detailed gauge cluster so graciously included by Ford. So here I have an Illustrator file and a pdf of both the original (sans needles, they were in the way) and a modified version that I made that I think looks way better. The least they could have done was not use Helvetica! You'll have to figure out how to print it right, I just finished designing it and I'm pooped. I might have to remove the idiot lights from the print, I think those are their own sections behind the dash. Let me know how it works, and if I can make any changes.

Are those files full size? If not, do you have the proper dimensions?

Thanks!

They're not at full scale, but the vector file can be stretched without distortion. I don't know the proper dimensions either.

Right on, thanks. I'll just pull and scan my own face plate, then. I've got some ideas...

Sorry for the necrothread bump in advance. I am in need of a vector scan or full size scan of the primary gauge face, as the previous owner put some generic cluster indiglo face in. It is scaled incorrectly for the SVT, so I would like to make a semi-OEM overlay, but I have no viable template. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Might MobiusOne's trick in post #82 work for you?

Free online owner's manual should still be avail. to try.

I probably should reconsider posting so late in the evening. I missed where MobiusOne said it came from the online manual. I clicked the links in the post only and found them to be dead. I'll play with converting them to vectors tonight and see how it goes. Thanks again.
