Some people may remember me asking a while ago if anyone would be interested in these when I was looking at getting some made. They are now finally ready and are available to anyone that now wants them.

(I think I have sent a PM to all those who originally said they wanted a set, let me know if I have missed anybody)

The dial faces suit both 90mph and 110mph Nippon (later) style dials, they attach to the existing faces and glow blue when the lights are switched on. During the day they look like regular white dials.

The following pic will give you an idea of what they look like when lit up:

The price for these is £65 delivered

If you are interested then you can reply here or send me a PM

Thanks

Darren

(if this should be in the for sale section then please move it, I wasn't sure where it would be best to put it)

Do you know whether you can turn down the brightness on those...?

When we made ours, i had to make a small control circuit to make the brightness adjustable, as at night those electroluminescent sheets are unbelievably bright...!!

When we drive the car at night, we turn the brightness right down, as shown below, otherwise they make driving a nightmare...

They are dimmable, if you would like some pics of how much they will dim then I can get some on the weekend, only got them today so havn't had a chance to get a set in the car yet. The dimming circuit is all part of the inverter on these.

If you would like a set then I can take payment by paypal, cheque or cash on collection (if you are ever near Bristol)

If you are in Bristol next weekend then you are more than welcome to have a look at how much they dim and decide if you are interested then. (I will keep a set to one side in case you do decide to have them)

I have not wired up one of these sets yet but a previous set I had from the same supplier the dials dimmed by about half if you wanted them to.

They are wired in so they only glow when the lights are on, white during the day and glowing blue at night. I suppose you could wire them up to a separate switch to have them on any time you wanted if you liked.

I don't have a fitting guide at the moment but I should be putting one together tomorrow when I fit a set of these in my own car.

Fitting is simple, you take the fronts off your existing dials and these fascias stick to the existing dial faces, double sided tape is easiest for this.

The 4 sections of the facias are then connected to the inverter (all the wiring for this just pluds together)

The inverter is wired up to +ve and -ve, (the positive would normally be the positive feed that the gauge lights would work on) -ve should be any good earthing point.

2 things to not when fitting - do not use solvent based glues (it melts the electroluminescent sheet) and make sure all the dial faces are connected before putting any power through the inverter.
