    Adding Volt Meter

    I would like to add a Volt meter and retain the current Amp meter. This will require cutting an additional hole in the dash.

    Has anyone ever done this and what precautions do I need to take to insure I don't tear/screw up the leather covering on the dash.

    Thanks in advance for any insight.

    Hi Phil,

    I changed out my Ammeter for a Voltmeter last year. Alan & Jim gave me advise on what to do. Voltmeter works great.

    Why do you want to keep the Ammeter?

    That's a good question, Jeff. The volt meter is installed.

    Nothing earth shattering, Paul. I decided against reinstalling the amp meter, although I had figured out how to put the additional hole in the dash for the gauge. I simply replaced the amp meter with the volt meter, and all is good in the neighborhood.
