Default My hands down favorite SID fix

Here it is:



(sorry for the poor photography skills)

Did i mention it didnt include the sid? Without the sid the dimmer switch and horn dont work, so i stripped it down, put it inside a static bag that i have from some comp parts (just in case) and shoved it inside the dash. The boost gauge and clock are both vdo vision series and the a/f is autometer cobalt.

Thanks mark(900se) for help with the a/f install.

At least it makes a 2nd one in the car... Since ive wanted to see my gauges now im using the armreast holder, and i think i like it better- cup fits in better, doesnt spill, and easier to get to since my seat is all the way back (for a 6'1" height).

I DO miss the old mpg function...

I use that one by default. As a 6'2" guy, I know what you mean. Although it gets in the way of those shifts...not like you would know .


Cheap shot, Im sorry. It was wide open .


Im an a*s, what can I say.

Ok, we're even . But who doesnt have the clamp and brace yet? Yeah both of us . HAHA. Im way to into the SID to part with it even though it borderline readable and slowly fading.


I knew I should have picked up that one on ebay a few weeks back for $65.
