    Lightbulb EOI - Group Buy 280KM/H Speedo

    Hi All,

    I have looked into getting some custom made speedo dials that display up to 280km/h. There are devices on ebay and on online shops that convert the km/h on japanese imports to miles. This is origionally aimed at the UK market as they still live in the dark ages and use miles. This device also then changes the limit to 180 mph which is basically 280km/h. We can then fit one of these dials [below] that shows both miles on the outside in the exact same scale as the stock 180km/h dials that also shows the km/h in smaller print on the inside.

    Lockwood dials


    Stock dials


    But as I don't like this design I emailed to see if one could be made to the same scale but only showing the km/h. Their responce was yes they can and it would cost me 180 pounds [multiply by approx 1.6 for AUD] but if I could arrange a group buy of 10 or more i could be done for less.
    At this stage the estimated cost would be AUD$100.00 depending on how many we get. We need a minimum of 10. I have also requested that we change the lockwood logo to GTO instead :mrgreen:

    This thread will be posted on 4 forums. I will update all with a count.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Just ran through the numbers again and found out that as we are not in the UK we don't have to pay the 17.5% VAT tax so they will be cheaper.

    New price will be AUD/NZD$80.00 Possibly less if we get more than 10.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    more updates.

    I also found another place in the US of A that does the same thing. I emailed them over a week ago but just got a reply. They also have black ones that IMHO look better than the Lockwood ones so I will see what I can do with those. Here is their website. It allows you to custom design a guage with your own logo or text and a choice of clours etc. I have emailed them back about possible group buy options.

    http://www.speedhut.com/custom_gauge...number-409.htm

    If we can come up with a design we all like I will request a group buy on it. The website only shows miles but I have confirmed fro mthem they can do a kms only version for us.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    After going through the design part of the website I am leaning towards the speed hut ones now. I think the black with light up red text etc and a gto logo would be awesome.

    So its a 280 kmh dial only? Or Big KMH scale and smaller mph?
    And black with red gto logo would be awesome!
