    coz my camera is crapy it looks like its poorly light in some spots, but trust me it isnt and looks nuts in person'
    the to pics of the dash up close are very bad quality, it wont show up the rev tachO which is the blue circle next to the lion and the other one is the speedO which is faintly visable but dulls out in parts

    i love the dash just looks **** with the green clock but still looks hot.

    actually i got a question about that does ur clock have a mind of its own and only turn on when it feels like it or when its tapped. mine does

    nah mine is fine, not a prob' only thing that is a prob is the trip, might take my dash apart again for the 4 time so far and place a s/hand trip clock in (and wind the odomotoer to what my dash has on it ),

    just went to u pull it 2day and got my self some front struts with adjustable nolathane tops, 30 bucks the pair, the shockers are fekd but i wanted the nolathane tops, also got a new CAS plug cable so tommorow im going to be soldering that into my loom and cleaning it up
