    Default Instrument surrounds

    I was driving my 04 Elegance the other day, when I dawned on me how boring the instrument cluster is. Just numbers on a black background. How easy is it to put something a bit more interesting in. I saw some photos on here of chrome rings around the speedo and rev counter, presumably from a facelift car. Any idea where I can get some from and how easy to fit?

    The speedo with chrome will read a max of 160 mph if you have a 1.8 the rev counter might have the wrong red line/max revs on the dial.

    Someone here has retro fitted some rings from a scrapped car.

    If you look at my display in the background, it has the chrome surrounds & 160mph speedo.
    Came as standard, 1.8 SXI, 2003 53 plate.

    Ah, your pics are where I first got the idea Ian! I'll have to keep my eyes open now I know they are standard kit.


    Anyone know how easy it is to get the display apart?

    My speedo goes up to 170mph... dunno why, it's only a 1.8! Will the SRI/SXi dials be ok?

    Cheers Ian, that's exactly the same as mine (minus the chrome of course). Looks so much better with the shiny bits, I'll have to keep my eyes open at the scrappy.
