I am brand new to all this. Paramedic by trade. Always wanted a mini. Have some knowledge of cars and engines as I've rebuilt bike engines with my Dad in the past. But electronics are not my strong point, made worse by my lack of knowledge about components at the moment.
Bought myself a 1989 Mini Checkmate Flame edition and I can't wait to get started on some customisation. Dash needs changed though, it is bright yellow to match the go faster stripe. But it's just too much.
I currently have 3 main gauges: speedo on the left, fuel and water temperature plus full beam light in the middle, and tachometer on the right.
The new dash: I want it black carbon fibre effect, with 2 main gauges being speedo and tachometer. I want the fuel and water temperature to be amongst separate 52mm gauges on the dash on the left. But having watched videos on youtube of dash dismantling it seems as though the current 3 gauge housing is not modular. I.e: I can't just take out the fuel gauge and replace it with the tachometer in the stock housing.
Is there a work round or something I can do without buying new gauges? I like the yellow faces of my gauges as they match the strip subtly and will look great against a black dash.
Any suggestion is welcome.
