any dodgy car dealers out there? I need to clock a speedo that I am fitting in my car as a replacement to the mileage on the old one, are they difficult to change the nos.

Default not sorted, given up

on my car I have a banham round dial dash conversion using the original rev and speedo, (removed and converted to fit) the problem with these aftermarket, period accessory things is the warning lights are not well placed some (4) are not in the centre nacelle
the hrw blinds me along with the low fuel whereas the indicator warning light are out of sight meaning if the wheel doesn't go far enough round to cancel them they stay on till I notice, so, I purchased a loverly pair of electronic gauges from a series 3 they all have warning lights for every thing I have a problem with, the only thing is the mileage is twice what mine is (see pic) I want to zero it or set it to 70000, speedy cables will do it for me but I was hoping it would be a diy project.
I have a picture of what it should look like when done, the only thing is mine will be a 160mph speedo and its not veneered its crackle black, I will proberbly send it to speedy as at 120 quid a pair I don't want to mess up. mine now has smiths gauges fitted instead of the tim in pic.

That is interesting Rex. Like you I was always missing the unviewable turn indicator warning lights. I wired in extra repeaters to help, but not as good as having them in the centre. Was it an relativelt easy swap from the wiring point of view?

I find that the audible click from the flasher unit is inaudible. If anyone could recommend a louder clicking flasher unit, that would be great.

when I got it it was new, and the whole thing was a plug and play after the big dials have been removed and refitted, its just the room behind the dash that could be a prob for the xj12 cases, I cant (at the moment) be bothered to strip the dash out as the gauges are capillary type,
