I’m in the early stages (very early) of converting a digital dash Coupe GT to analog. However, my vision of this is going to incorporate a factory B2 cluster, but with the left side of the cluster gutted for either a digital speedo, or a new VDO speedo that does away with the need for a cable. My question is this; are all B2 instrument clusters dimensionally identical? What I mean by this is the question of whether the cluster in its most basic form will physically bolt into my ‘86. I know that I will have to re-pin the wiring, I just need to know if the shape and mounting points are the same from the early cars to the 85 and up models. Thanks in advance.

They are the same. I have a late dash in my 83 UrQ with the original cluster.
