Not much happening at the minute. Colour coded side scuttles today, with some badges I got. Not sure the colour is a good match though. No clear coat on it yet. Still have black ones if it doesn't look good.

Well this was meant to be a track car, and I wasn't going to get too into the aesthetic side of things. But seeing it on the drive everyday, and not being able to drive it. I kept thinking of things I'd like to do. New rear lights on the way, I'm in the process of flocking the dashboard, and I have these sorted now too for some subtle yellow touches.

Keeping me entertained until I can get on with the more exciting things! 😁

Fitted my flocked dash today, along with the revometer, speedo, cd player, switches and climate panel which have all had the LEDs changed to pink/purple. Also black rings around the faces and vents. Dash isn't totally back together yet, but this is what it looks like so far. Really pleased with how the flocked dash looks.

Not sold on the faces though, the numbers don't look defined when lit up... Might have to swap them.

Edit - Spoken to the people who did the faces, and they're going to print me some different ones that will hopefully be more defined.

Where'd you buy the gauges? I've had a few over the years that were poorly cut or printed and had them remade. Seems to be a lot of people who do it from home to a poor standard.

Northern Lights SMDs and Dial Faces.
Is there anywhere you’d recommend to get them from if they don’t/can’t get it right?

Yes sounds familiar :ROFLMAO:

I think the guy who runs R53 OC did the ones I was happy with in the end, can't remember his name but if you ask on there people should be able to point you in the right direction.

Ah familiar in a bad way then? :confused:

To be fair, he was really helpful and offered to re do them to sort the problem, so I’ll give him a chance to sort it first, and if they’re no good then I’ll look elsewhere. Happy with the LED replacements they’ve done though.
