Hi Ryan,

Only real options are to change the actual dials themselves - there are no aftermarket clusters that i am aware of - the instrument cluster is a fairly important part of EEC.

But yeah - you can get replacement dials (i.e. white, red etc and/or custom markings etc)

where can one acquire these dials, assuming u mean the back with all the markings on it, looking for a white one with black marking and blue needles.

$70 *cough*

And that ford logo is ghastly (it hurts to say it)

Time to break out the printer and matt photo paper.

agreed - they look pretty tacky...

i got a quote from a signprinting place here to get custom ones printed - was given a figure of $70 - and i reckon you could put together something a lot better than that for the price :wink:

stuff the high res scanner bit, they'd always come out dodgy anyway. What we need is:

- Someone to take LOTS of detailed measurements on the dial backgrounds - eg. the parts as seen in that ebay item.
- Someone to put together a matching template in a VECTOR drawing package (or f**k, even a word document with the shapes in the right places/sizes).
- Distribute it, so everyone can get at least teh basics, and can modify at will.
- Print
- Install.

If someone wants to send me a cluster that I can pull apart (evan broken one), I can do it.
