Thanks!
Was going to go Super Dragger but shipping was as much as the exhaust itself! That's from the US and not Japan. If from Japan would have been about $100.

Hey thanks. I recognise the name! Not on Toyspeed/JZX are you?

Unfortunately i am overseas for work and have had little time to work on the car. Once i am back i might have some leave up my sleeve so will be able to put some hours in there.
Also have the exhaust coming in container from Japan with Ewan's shipment and that's leaving late May and arriving Mid June (well i have heard that its then).

May come down for a look at the meet.

Cheers.

Super clean build man. Keep it up.

I'm wondering about your exhaust. I really like the way it sounds based on the video clips on YouTube so I am considering it for my car. I checked the HKS site and they don't list it for the MKIII. Do you have the part number?

Hey, thanks!

I tried going for the Super Dragger but that was discontinued and it looks like the US market bought up the remaining stock. Plenty available in the US!

The one i got was HKS Exhaust 31019-AT004. Best to search the Yahoo! Japan Auctions for some one that sells. Do you know someone that can buy from Yahoo Japan?

And a link for English: http://www.importmonster.com.au/yahoo?cat=0&term=31019-AT004

Cheers.

i would suggest 3mm aluminium composite panel. Its excellent for that sort of stuff and you can buy it in black or many other colours from most plastics suppliers.

Trying to sort out the placement of the gauges.

The '60' ones are the Speedhut Gauges
The '70' ones are the Defi Gauges.
The big ones are Speed and Tach
These are measurements in mm and their maximum diameter or 'footprint'

Getting exciting!

What a mission! Almost have a dash that can go back in to the car!
Just need to find some LED with bezels that are suitable for Left/Right/HighBeam and Brake/Oil/Door etc.

The gauges with dials that can be seen are SpeedHut and the Black face ones are Defi! If i could go back and get them all then same (SpeedHut) i would!

I love that dash setup amazing !
Wow that was a quick reply! :)

I should have added that I trimmed out all the clear face of the perspex cover so i wouldnt lose the air vents - looked at re-designing them but why not keep it simple aye? ;) The white backing of the cluster is gutted also. no orignal parts in there.

Pretty much finished the 'proof of concept'!
I have lights like indicators, high beam, hand brake etc working. The gauges illuminate/power up and all seems to be working fine!



Gauge cluster is just sitting in there - not bolted down or anything.









I wanted a way to remove the cluster and not have to unplug from the Defi meters. I went to Jaycar and realised i could use a USB plug (extension for the M & F ends) worked out alright i think :)

Will the USB wiring be suitable for the Defis? I did notice they were pretty thin wires. Will see i guess





I went to Pinch a Part and got a loom plug (both ends) and made my own dash connector. have two spare slots - might use one for door and one for charge light. The sad thing is I actually paid for the plugs. Oh wells :)





Thanks for Grrrr! i should have a CF panel in here very soon to replace the aluminium panel currently in there! :D

What did you do with the 1jz? also did the V160 tranny bolt right in? I remember hearing how you have to widen the tranny tunnel to fit the V160.

Thanks! I'm using the stock V160 speed sensor.

That's crazy!!! Build is turning out great man, can't wait to see what the panel looks like.
Thanks, neither can I! :)

I ended up selling the 1JZ. They're common here in NZ.
I widened the tunnel by about 1 inch in one point around where the crossmember bolts to.
Can't remember where else - was so long ago!

Another update.. So soon!

Am meant to be flying to Fiji today... Flight was delayed from 2pm to 10pm. Managed to get some garage time :)

I have been working on this dash and it looks like its pretty much finished! Only thing i want to add is a dial for adjusting the brightness of the Rev, Speed, Fuel Level and Volt meters.

Anyways, some pics!!!

Highbeam and indicators working as they should:



Looking from the side:



While Running:



Overall pic of cluster (the 14 pin plug gives cluster all non Defi gauges and LEDs power):



How the wiring is tied up at the moment. Will change soon no doubt:


Start up video with all gauges working!! (excluding volt meter and fuel level)

I like the conversion, definitely one of the cleanest gauge replacements I've seen. The little lights are perfect, where did you get them?
