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.

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

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.

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.

Hello all, just noticed some were looking for my vector file. I syill have it, here it is.
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B71yv5osWl9rLXpjSncxT2VYeDQ/view?usp=sharing

DM me if that doesn't work. I can convert the filetype tomorrow too.
Here's an eps version for the time being: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B71yv5osWl9rLXpjSncxT2VYeDQ

Remember it's not to scale so you'll have to adjust it to full size.
this is kinda of a bummer.. I got that image like shown above, and full dashboard doesn't fit right with it... the holes are a bit off...
I'll have to print it out and adjust to fit right...

I broke my original ST170 background... Has anyone the template?






I did this with my SVT gauges that I put into my 2000 ZX3. I finally got the aux cluster wired up so it would work and could actually see how the blue looked!
Omg what did you do for make the aux cluster work?

Since the Forum is preventing me from PMing a Seller in buy-sell-trade, because I don't have enough posts, until I spam the Forum with useless post:

Just let me say: "I don't know why they made this mod so hard."

Woot! That's #8, because they didn't count 2, for some reason!
