I'm sure I've read somewhere on the boards that you want the fuel tank to be either full or empty so that when you switch on with the new guages they read right, that doesn't sound right to me but I thought I'd ask, is that a myth or is there any truth behind it? From a scrap yard you will need to remove the trim around them, this is done by undoing the 2 screws in the dials aperture and one under a cover at the side of the centre vents. This is to be expected from a car that has gained only a scant 4mm of wheelbase length and even Ford claims to have enhanced the notoriously stingy rear leg room by just 16mm.

Ever wanted to change your dials to something a little different? This symbol indicates the engine is overheating. Although I should have a few days free before I go back to Uni to get started on the conversion, the wiring is probably going to be very slow going because it's a case of practically building a unique loom from scratch, so I'm going to put aside a good 12 hours to get it all together and tested to see if all my joints are good.

Below are the new mk4 dials that will be fitted into a mk3 dash, notice the two connectors, one white and one blue.
