    Thumbs up Another little "tweek" :D

    My car is getting there now but one thing I didnt really like was the "boost" and "oil pressure" pods stuck to my A pillar soo....
    Lalalalala


    As you can see we took out the blank squares from the centre consol (bit by the hazzard switch) and mounted the LCD displays into them. Seperated the LCD from the guage and wired it up under the knee bolster and there you have it!

    The cost of the guages are about 40 each from glowshift in america. You can now get ones for arround 20 from ebay with red displays but that is a recent addition.

    The displays were de-soldered from the board and then long wires were soldered between the display and the curcit board.

    The middle was then cut out of the "switch blanks" and filed one of the clips also had to be removed to allow room for the LED to fit in place. A piece of accrilic (spelling?) was then fitted into the hole so it was flush with the rest of the button.
    Using a bit of filler and loads of sand paper it was finally sprayed matt black and the "windoow" sprayed with light tint also black. Then they were just wired up with the wires put under the knee bolster and there you have it

    The cost of the project has not been too much as I alraedy has the guages in pods anyway. The light tinting spray is about 10 again which I had and the can of spray paint is about 5.99 again which I had. Its the time it takes to get it just right but it is soo worth it

    Ill try and find some other pics of the guages de-soldered etc and post them later

    Oh ok, I have a boost gauge fitted to my car already, so I have a vacuum feed going into the car, I fancy going digital, and placing it to a similar position to Stacie's, might catch a quick peak next time I see you guys then.
