Thanks. I kinda feel like changing a few small things recently is like BAM new look, renewed want to keep the car.

Have a few more bits on the way, and will most likely go gloss black with the wheels.

Thought seeing as I've been bed ridden for a couple of days with some dodgy virus, I though might put my gauges in my gauge pod.

Excuse the crappy pictuers I not feeling the best.

Will make the hood so it still lifts up like the lid did because with the double din there is no other storage.

Yea I ended up going the budget Depo gauges, and they sent me the wrong ones as well I wanted white face and they sent black now there is no response from them, so I'll just keep the black anyway.

The reason for the cheap ass ones at the moment was mainly after doing the math I worked out if there are 365 days in the year, then for around 350 of them the gauges will be reading 0. :giggle:

Or maybe change the gauges to green. Undecided as yet which way to go.

Much less work to go green, and I honestly can't remember the last time I drove it at night.

Changed the cluster over to white led's. Took a fair bit to remove the green but I got it done. It will need a diffuser layer in there to even the light out but its not as bad as I thought it would be.

You need to change the clock to match now as well.

Think the clock has one of those colored membranes in front of it. I also read on one forum even when you remove it, its still green.

Went out last night and had a look in the dark. You can't really tell the dark parts. What does stick out like dogs balls is the fuel gauge. Need to darken that one a little.

Lupin I cut out some plastic from 2L milk. Works a treat. Oh. But I also changed the led in that too. That one was just a globe replacement unlike the rest

Thanks

Gauges are 52mm and the pod comes in 52 and 60mm.

Swav that's about all it needs. Can't be bothered pulling the cluster apart at the moment. Got a couple of other things on the go. :wink:
