    What do you all think? I was having reflection problems with the metal panel in front of my cut away dash.. so I made this:

    Tapped a thread onto the gearstick and fitted a new gearknob

    Which gauge is that you're using? I may have missed it in the thread. I am looking to get one to monitor oil temps and such.

    It's a depo 4in1 mate! Awesome wee gauge, oil pressure, oil temp, water temp and voltage. Recommend getting the unsmoked version

    Why didn't you not flock the dash?

    I would have but it wasn't actually the dash causing the problem, you may have seen before it was chopped back, the metallic grey part under the windscreen was reflecting up onto the window.

    Haha, it doesn't fit a RHD with standard clocks!

    I was going to put a dibond sheet up there, but carbon is much nicer i think!

    Epic times you put up yesterday too buddy ! VERY impressive.

    Stance looks great now with the front down a bit more. Was this done before yesterday ? Car all good at Donny.....or have you now highlighted the next 'weak' spot ? :smile:

    Literally tweaked it all for donny, and run higher than usual pressures in the rear.. just need some Michelin slicks and I think a good clean underneath again
