  1. Maybe it is now sold, but I spotted one on ebay today.
  2. This is mine and I have the 8.5J fronts with 9.5J rears. Fitted with 245/35/18 and 275/35/18 Michelins. Offsets on all four concave fitment wheels are +32, rears just bolted on, fronts have a 10mm spacer, of course that makes those +22. All very similar to Rajah's but for mm's.
  3. Have you got your NHS covid travel pass and your entry requirements for your destination in order Lee ๐Ÿ˜ท.
  4. Looks good that, think I put gravel in mine with soapy solution, worked as a sludge scratcher !!
  5. Mine did that and is a very common complaint, no need to fear the worst. Iโ€™d suggest a new oil sender unit and/or an aftermarket gauge. The water temperature gauge is just as useless, that just sits in the middle no matter what ๐Ÿ™„.
  6. The extra wiring is for the EL dials, one wire for each, hence 6. Needles lever off very easily with a fork, not a garden fork, a cutlery fork, for your chips !! The aftermarket faces may or may not come off easily, not much glue is required to hold them place but you won't know until it's on your bench.
  7. These are heavily messed about with but ยฃ250 gets them back to the UK. There's a series 4 onwards boost gauge on this cluster but is there the factory black face under the aftermarket faces, no guarantee of course and even if it's not been ripped off or out, it could be damaged with the attachment of the white one. 90-96 Nissan 300zx Tt Z32 OEM Instrument Gauge Cluster Dq 24810 45p22 117-950 | eBay
  8. Absolutely nothing, where are we supposed to find such an item though, thereโ€™s more chance finding a unicorn ๐Ÿ˜€.
  9. Finding clusters with a boost gauge is incredibly difficult, got mine many years ago from Japan and think it was about ยฃ70 all in !! I'm always on the look out for 'spares' to what I have, I did see one a while ago from Banzai, the price was ยฃ260, also one from America which was even more. As long as the pcb is like the one in this thread with one vertical and 2 horizontal plugs then I've found they all work with TT's, I have seen the blue pcb boarded clusters with 3 plugs all horizontal, these could be for 1992 verts, but this please note is a guess.
  10. Very nice indeed, these are the ones to buy, good work and write up ๐Ÿ‘.
  11. Bet your next post is that you're wanting to find a unicorn, eh why not, could've more chance ๐Ÿ˜€. You'll be best with the steering wheel getting one re covered as you want.
  12. I have not heard it or driven it, only can go off what Jim says and he likes, bit more refined than the old 2.5 inch Alunox system, and that was the remit. Jim is close to driving the car apparently, might get a video soon perhaps, especially if he reads this !!
