A few quick photos on my way home, before the cops showed up and harassed me.

I need to find a place with a cool background at night... like a sweet building, or the Death Star perhaps.

In action

Local guy was selling these silver gauge faces that he had Importcarparts.com make... they're not overlays. I HAAAAAD to have them, as they were pretty much what I was looking for at half the cost. Original plan was to go white numbers/lettering, and I had 24 white LED's in... but... it just didn't do it for me, since there was a slight blue tint. Then I saw Silvia S15 gauges with thier stock silver face/orange backlight... and it was a no brainer... orange = 80's Mitsubishi styling.

The needles are lit up by some EXTREMELY tiny SMT LED's... in RGB. Meaning, they'll light up to Red Green or Blue + tons of other color combos. I haven't finished the wiring for the green or blue or made a controller for different colors, so for now, they're red. When I get my "shift light" I can have the tach needle change color at my preset shift point... a dream/idea I've had for 7+ years now. I ordered these on ebay direct from the manufacturer in China, right after that my paypal was stolen... coincidence... I think not.

These weren't 100% finished, but there was a meet and I wanted these in. There's 30 orange LED's and 8 RGB's (2 for the big needles). MANY hours of work into this, as I had to redo all the backlighting from white to orange.

I had the white odometer number set in, but that speedo was my broken one(I forgot I did my testing on a broken set)... so I had to swap in a different speedo for the meet. The boost gauge is a 60mm Prosport electronic gauge (I also have matching water temp, oil pressure, and fuel pressure from them). Our team has been running prosports since prosport first started offering gauges about 3 years ago... one of the few companies out there that know what customer service is about.

Would I do it again... ha... maaaaaaaaaaybe... the needles were hardest part because of the tiny LED's, the solder pads are less than 1mm thick and very fragile.
<img src="http://home.comcast.net/~Driftability/images/Komeuppance/NeedleLED.jpg" border="0" class="linked-image" />
Broken solder pad... busted about 7 of these.

It makes the car feel like a much newer machine since the old gauges had old school backlighting by today's standards, and orange from the needles have faded away... plus the Prosport pwns.

Image
Gauges off, flash lights em up though.

Image
Park lights (needles on, gauges white)
Image
Headlights on, all orange backlighting.

I still need to replace my AC controller bulbs, and plug my stereo back in.

So, yeah, that's my ride.

... it's that Starion in the background, haha.

Better include a Datsun in my pic so I fit in here:
Image
I've crashed a few Datsun meets.

Image
The ol' Saturday meets.

Image
Back in the day...

Image
Got tired of bottoming out. Shortened housings with MR2 Tokiko Illuminas.

Image
Oh yeah...

Image
Oh no...

Image
Got tired of not being able to over speed bumps, so I built a full 3" turbo back exhaust.

Image
Drove to Vegas.

Image
When the engine bay was clean lol...

Image
And where she sleeps at night.

I like the electronics, they look pretty cool.

Your exhaust is gonna get torn off the next time you go over a speedbump though. Looks like it's only a centimeter off the ground.

Exhaust has already been damaged... haha... and it finally broke. But, this was before the slammage.

New 3" exhaust in the works, I should be able to go over speedbumps now...

Yeah, front spoiler is 3" off the ground. They are MK1 RCA's, but they have been shaved down for tie rod clearance, in case I ever need to bolt 7's back up. I think they're 21mm spacers now.

How thick were the RCAs before you shaved them down? With it that low, the angles of the suspension still look pretty extreme. Do you have any bump steer issues?

They were 25mm before I believe.

That pic is with the car lowered an inch more... I never made it out of the driveway like that (I really tried!!). But since I raised it only an inch, it handles great.

I have not noticed any bump steer at all.
