I want to make my digital clock in the dash of my '03 Toyota Tundra into a digital voltmeter.  It looks like the guts of the clock could easily be removed from behind the smoked plexiglass lens.  Any suggestions on how to do this and where to get parts?   Also, I would like some links or info on home and car audio accessories {other than $$$ Crutchfield}

Actually, I thought of something a little brighter... Check out a company that used to be called Datel. (Looks to me like they go by C&D Technologies.) This is the link directly to the 3.5 digit LED display voltmeters. Otherwise, if interested, click here to get the entire catalog in PDF. (I would right click, and selet "Save Target As") I bought my blue LED ammeter and current shunt from Datel last year, and they are good products. Never had any problem with either of them.
I have no idea how expensive $$$ is, but if it comes from Crutchfield, probably more than it has to be... As you can see, the Datel meters are not exactly cheap, but you will get what you pay for...
It all reminds me of something that Molière once said to Guy de Maupassant at a café in Vienna: "That's nice. You should write it down."

Thanks for the links. 

I was interested in accessories {other than the clock} for home and car.   Stuff like cables, connectors, bolt on accessories, gadgets, etc.
