Dakota Digital is at the forefront of aftermarket instrument technology. The company creates beautiful, functional gauges that do wonders for updating the interior classic cars. Offering direct-fit systems for all of the more popular classic cars, DD also offers custom services for cars when direct-fit solutions are not available.
