That looks good and it can do 180mph!

By the way, I watched Question time last night, there was a guy in the audience who looked exactly like your picture, wasn’t you was it?

Trip meter in the tachometer, I've not seen that before.

What format LEDs do you need? I have quite a few. The major difficulty for me has been to match the colours followed be getting the right level of light for each instrument. This was compounded by the fact that some of the new instruments had LEDs built in.

Hello Peter,
Thanks for the offer but I already have them ordered. Coloured for the warning lights and green for the dial illumination. Made so that they work pos over neg or neg over pos. Originally land rover style!

I dont normally go for electronic bells and whistles - much of what is installed on top end cars is unnecessary and aimed only at gadget freeks. But that said I really like the fully electronic displays of the sort that McLaren use. Programmable to show different screens just like your PC, so for a track day for example, there is a dominant rev counter with rev limiter lights and oil pressure and temperature. And of course the colour changes.

Dont know whether this link will work but .... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fT2Lc5rpVJc

The reason I am changing to LEDs is so that I can actually see the warning lights when the hood is down.

Bob.
camera please once you’ve got them installed.
They will look great in the car.

(Of course, my modest 4/4 already has off-white dials as standard. wink innocent)
