Hi guys - this is probably a silly question but can anyone tell me what is supposed to show up on the "T" section on a EL Futura dash? (the two oblong "windows" - one horizontal at the top and one vertical in between the rev counter and speedo) ... I know that some of the diagnostic things show up on the vertical one but I don't have anything on the horizontal one - thought it might be a display to show what gear you are in (auto) ... if so then I guess the lights need replacing 'coz they ain't working (like most Kiwis in Oz ... hehehe)

Cheers fellas,

Kiwi Ford Fan

You have - brake fail light rounds it out. Top of the 'T' is L & R indicator + high beam.

That is all . . . . . :idea:

That answers that part ... now just have to work out whether or not I want a blue dash (odo lights not working so thought I might as well fancy up the dash at the same time) ... might go green instead (car is Bermuda Green ... my son calls it the "Big Green Meany") ... might even incorporate green into my re-trim. 8-)
