Alex, I was thinking more towards dimming the rev counter as warning lights won't be on constantly to be blinding Terry ;)

I dont think he cares that it'll be blinding me :lol:

Update time

Sunday morning started off with me going to grab some essentials

Coolant, Sand paper, Soldering Iron and some Well Seal

Image

One of the first things I did was solder my buttons and connections back onto my monitor! I had to cut them off to fit the bottons back into the new carbon face ( not pics) I wanted to be able to keep a half accurate eye on the water temps as my standard water gauge is playing up!

I also used a bit of the sand paper just to clear up the face/area where I was going to be refitting the new core plug

Monitor refitted into its home and connected up ( note the LED's are missing from the sides as they broke when the old face broke)

Image

I then was given my new core plug(s) by one of the MTS lads so i was ready to start fitting one these bad boys! I opted for a spare as I have a habit of fucking things up lol

Image

New plug refitted! What an awkward piece of crap that was to fit! As you can see in the pic I had to give it a love tap on the inside with an extension bar as the socket I was using to get it in nice and evenly was awesome until I needed to use the hammer!!

Eventually it went in and sat snugly in it's new home!

Image

I then refitted everything - engine mount, boost hoses, air filter and oil return pipe! added water and coolant and fired her up :mrgreen:

This is my view

Image
appy
She is running and now though! Fans cut in and out as they should with no leaks, so I'm a happy bunny

Went out to another Rs meet last night as it's kind of down the road from me, it's safe to say after the drive back last night my retina's have been burnt out from my bright6 :lol: :lol: , my dash does look rather funky in the dark though :D

I've also fitted my EGT probe after having the threads on the downpipe adaptor sorted as they were done pretty badly! :(

* Ps - yes i know my bulk head divider haz aidz :o :cry:

oh and my exhaust heat sheild has seen better days so i might replace it with a bit of nimbus :look:

Image

also my 2 replacement exhaust manifold studs and nuts arrived too

Image

I'll fit these over the weekend if i get a chance :D :D
