    Excellent

    The only thing i'd say about it, is position it in a good place - It doesn't come in a box, and there's fragile componants on it !

    Keep us posted - I'm interested to see if you get it working correctly !

    Already asked him for the dimensions so i can get a box for it

    Hopefully, i'll have them in and working (except for the inaccurate rev counter) at the weekend

    Well, dismantled the astra clocks and hacked them to bits, same with the E36 clocks. Need a bit of perspex and some filler and paint to make them mate together and look half decent

    The Frequency Pulse converter will be with me on friday, so will the little project box to store it in

    Here you go










    Just a test fitting, one of the bulbs has gone on the dash, 2 more on order

    It's going to have to go in, in 2 pieces, the actual digital section, then the front part of the original E36 cluster. Needs a bit of filling at the top and sides, hopefully i'll do that this weekend.

    Frequency pulse controller arrived today, got it mounted in a small box, will set it up when i've got some time.

    Just of to get some cable to make a small loom up to connect all the correct wires in, so full steam ahead with it

    Any comments or ideas are appreciated

    I've just seen a pic on another forum...

    9 teeth on the pulse wheel, so work out the circumferance of your tyres, find out how many turns they do per mile (or km etc) and x 9 to get the number of pulses per mile.

    7166.7 pulses per mile I've got the frequency pulse converter (FPC) now, i wired it into the loom i've made up for the conversion, i'm giving it a test run tomorrow

    I'm working on getting the clocks to fit a bit better tonight, which involves extending the astra clocks fascia at either side and the top, then tomorrow i should have it all wired in except the second FPC.... more pics to follow tomorrow

    Ideally, i want to get the dash looking like this:



    I'm currently talking to the bloke who i got the FPC off, he used to make a kit to change the colour to anything you want, blue, green, rainbow etc....

    They're Astra GTE Mk2 digi dials, stripped down, with the light filters painted to give the colours
