woot! :)

high-series cluster is in! hurray! a massive thanks to benn (ugly igley) for giving up his sunday arvo to come do the install for me - greatly appreciated!

i'll get pics tomorrow, but very happy with it all :wink: 2 issues though at the moment - a) door open - need to trick the cluster into either thinking the doors are closed all the time, or wiring up the connectors correctly. the other issue is that when the lights are turned on, i lose the dimming function :cry: pretty sure its a resistor that needs to be added?

but very happy! 8-)

ps - thanks to twason & matti for their help too with instructions :)

pps - and thanks to dylan for getting me the plugs :wink:

Uglybob,
You need to put some resistors to ground (220ohm I think) to stop the wings from flapping. Also there is another resistor you need in the cluster (47ohm I think) for the display dimming, this one is in Matti's doco or upgrade to high series BEM.
Cheers
TW.

have actually decided against doing it to this cluster - i think its quite a classy looking cluster, and looks good enough with std lighting for it. *may* have a play around with it down the line, but for now, it'll be staying stock. will be swapping my A/C controls over as well, to revert back from the blue to the stock look :)
