I made the sump as an object in a 3D program called trueSpace.
I think version 7.6 is available as a free download. If you like I can send you the 3D scene of the sump.
There was a *very* slight vibration at around 95-100 km/h, but it wasn't enough to worry about.
It's all good. I consider it like a free bump!
The photoshop file is in 196dpi. Printing it should retain it's size, although I think it's too big for A4. You could do a test run by having a print centre do you one on A3. It's about $2 here in Australia at a place called OfficeWorks.
Good to hear someone else doing their own gauge cluster :)
I used VistaPrint.com to print the file as a sticker.
I then layed that on top of 3mm board I'd cut to the shape I wanted.
If you have photoshop, you'l have to rearrange the symbols etc to suit your needs.
I've put a "TCI Auto Outlaw" pistol grip shifter in my 1981 hilux with the A341E behind a 1UZ. It works great. All I had to do was create an arm at the correct length to connect the cable to the gear selector on the box.
It's not a ratchet shifter, but the same setup would work for you...
If you still have the A341E, how much would you want for it?
I'm on the Gold Coast, so I can come and pick it up. Text me if you like. It's probably easier than communicating on here :)

Here's some videos on YouTube of my 1UZ Hilux...

Yeah, I used the GPS speedo. The only problem is that it doesn't work in tunnels (but how many tunnels do you really go through?).
Other than that it's pretty good. I've used the 0-100km/h (0-60mph) feature and recorded a 6.8 second time, and am still yet to try the 400m (quarter-mile) feature...
I made the symbols in photoshop.
Here's a link to the .PSD file if you want to use them...
The indicators and high beam LEDs are from Super Cheap for $14 each, and the small LEDs are from Prime Electronics (or you could go to JayCar), but I...
The gauges can be customised quite a lot. For example, you can choose different coloured text, backgrounds, and bezels as well as fonts and logos.
You won't be dissapointed ;)
