G'day Rene. I e-mailed you from eBay the other day asking about getting the letters to light up white (have clear instead of orange).

Could I send you a design that you could print up? If so what costs are involved?

I'm getting desperate!

Thanks Steady ED, That was just a cluster i was toying with for my car.

(30th Anniversary EA S-Pak)

Wasn't actually copied from anywhere.

Unfortunately - the factory tacho doesn't really go as far as my six can rev. (Redline being around 6,500 - 7,000) After measuring on the Dyno and the factory tach following the aft4ermarket right around. but it stops at 4,500 wont go any further.

Just have to live with it.

biggav & Others - If you want to i can send you a copy of the templates in Photoshop format (full size) and you could get them printed - if you like.

Just PM me with your email details (sprint - Now editied Redline 500 RPM Up) and i will send them through.

Just look at the other template posts and you will see how easy it is to do.

Heyo,

i'm sorry to say the technique we use wont look good with black face dials, the colour of the black on the plastic faces and on the plastic templates we make is a little bit different. also, teh writing would still light up yellow at night.

We are working on differnt wasy to get around this.

Regards
Rene,

If you are technically competent then you should be able to do these yourself.

I will post the Templates for both here - later
So you can print your own.

If you follow the previous dial installs from various posts you will see just how easy it is.

I had no intention of selling these, but i will provide copies here so you can change your dials for free.

Just adding the finishing touches to the cluster designs

The snake eye should light up with the high beam on as the indicator for the high beam.

Just trying to work out where to put the high beam light on the first one.
