    Iíll be offering these as as package, inner and outer steel components. No point doing half the job, the plastic will always be a problem.

    I should point out too, with the raised dash, the dash pad will need to be cut out to allow any more than 30mm depth for gauges in the top section, easy enough to replace a dash pad if need to in the future, but from my experience once you fit something like this itís pretty rare that it will be removed.

    I'll be very interested in it once you get it to 'export' stage!

    Ditto. I'd like one, even as a 'beta user'.

    How much was the raptor unit and did you source locally or sent from UK?

    Any particular reason why did you opt for the raptor over the APT unit?

    I see Rijidij is also developing a solution.

    Are you doing the symmetrical layout with the 3 small gauges on either side of the speedo? I like that one better.
