Photobucket is sorted

So I broke the speedo cable, it always had issues because it would get stuck. Anyhow it has led me to get these

Image

These are revolution gauges from speedhut and so far I have nothing but good things to say about them.

I also made some other electronic purchases, Electronic boost controller, retro sound stereo head unit, alpine amplifier and focal component speakers.

Still need to cover in carpet and box in the fuel filler pipe.

So my first instrument cluster was from a 1200 coupe, never got it to fit well.

Here is

And the now the Speedhut one

Hard to get a good photo

Still working on a centre console for the boost and other temp gauge.

And finally I got some one piece bumpers, nice and straight and I like the absence of joins but they don't fill as well around the body as the originals.

After the consol the next on the to do list is to get it lower, especially at the front.

Looks good, gauges have a nice retro look.

this is epic.i like the last pic with the shaved badges , makes the car look extremely "streamline"
Progress is slow, but it is progress non the less.

Long time since I have posted

Speed Hut gauges are all in and work well, recommend them for anyone wanted the retro look in a new electronic gauge.

I did have a issue with installing the temp sensor
First I broke the adapter for the stock SR temp sensor position

Image

Then I broke the temp sensor

Image

This created an expensive exercise. New sender, new adaptor, thread tap and a bigger drill bit

Image

Drilled out the sensor on the SR. Not a lot of room, very thin wall.

Image

Image

As you can see its a lot bigger than the stock temp sender.

Image

Image

I also made it a bit lower lately too
