Nice work on the instrument cluster Cam 👍. Can you show us how you put the indicator recesses in ?
Cheers, John

John I wish i could say I used some home made jig and pressed them out ..  but all I did was used the old recess from the cluster I cut up ..  then just filled in the slots with some weld. Drilled the holes out to the correct size. simple as that.

Well got the indicator light recess in and now just need to test fit all switches and a coat of filler and paint



Picked up a clean grill, will use a few of my own good chrome bits to finish it off, But very happy with it.

can you blokes talk Aussie English ..

Just for you...  Photobucket has added water marks that blurs  photos. This effects some of the posts in this forum as some members have used photobucket. To fix the water mark on the photos you can uses these add ons to your browser. Now there is one issue is itís only available for Firefox and Chrome.  I will check for warfarin and update if I find any.

You should be able to get the stickers you need from someone that makes signs, I got (brake fail ) done in reverse so I could stick it on the inside of the glass.

Hi all  Did a little work on the Tacho.  Looking good so far   

Welded up the new to old housings and converted the needle to fit the new tacho shaft (which was larger)



Quick test run, works fine
  Quick vid here

Next need to work out small sticker (RPM x1000), Numbers, bezel, and lighting make sure it all lights up fine.

Added a piece to hold the filler pipe in place. Should be hidden behind the pipe  and connected to the wheel well



Also did some work on the tacho conversion. have the older one ready to meet the new


also made a plate to have the old inner parts meet the new. thinking I might just have some text in the mile slot. Ie. RPM x1000

Well The bottom of the tank is now coated in rust seal, next is a coat of the black top coat from KBS which should dry hard and protect the tank a bit more, as it hangs blow the car.

Isn't that KBS good stuff ? ,I have put some Black Hi Gloss on with brush ,really soft brush and warmed the paint up ,and " sopped " it on ..very happy with result..

 Its amazing stuff the finish with just a brush is mind blowing..  One day we will be able to just paint our cars with a brush

Good progress Cam.  Mine is at a mate's workshop hopefully getting the subframe repairs done finally.... Once that is done only have to plug in number plate light, adjust handbrake, work out a way to secure the base of the back seat and redirect the front brake hoses away from the upper ball joint then good for RWC and rego.....


That's so cool  Graeme  so happy you have an FC back in your possessio..  Also can not wait for you to take me for a spin

And obviously drive belt covers are for safety-obsessed wusses.

Its so funny how relaxed things were.  I do admit the picture does not have the original belt guard on the the front as I had not finished it at that photo taken time, but its just at the front and does not cover the full length of the belt ..  The below picture from the internet of the small cover I am talking about ..  Cheesy
