That spot is used to indicate what gear you are in on the ATX, and in my car is just dummyed over with a plastic panel, You should be able to pull out the shift up light and splice it into the harness without a problem.
I'll check my local yard for you dutch...And do you still need a mirror glass?
BTW, I built a homemade A/F guage using a 10 LED bar and mounted it in the dummy panel, It looks OEM....Pics someday if I ever get a digital camera.
yea, many of the newer fords don't have a "redline" on the tach... dunno why, but anyway, is it just a wire that's hooked up to something like the 02 sensor? My friends jeep had something like this as well...
I used a 10 LED bar strip from Newark Online (Excellent electronic parts distributor BTW), the rest of the parts I got from Radioshack and National Semiconductors.
National Semiconductors will treat you like your buying 1000 of them, and will even send you up to 5 parts for free (Shipping and all)
Changing one lead on the circuit will make it light only on LED up instead of the entire bar, I soddered a mini dip switch into the circuit board to control this, but I leave it on bar style all the time.
However, I etched my own circuit board instead of soddering all those jumper leads, so its much neater than the one at the webpage.
my old 88 dx I drove in high school had that little shift light and it drove me nuts! It seemed like it was ALWAYS on! The dx is sitting out in a row of old cars at the back of a field on my fathers' farm (tucked away on the "North 40" so we don't look like total ********) If anyone wants the gauge cluster I could remove it. Possible trade for a spoiler for my 89GT? (the old one looks like I put it in an oven for a few days.)
