    Best bet, take all the bits out of your car, put them in a box and sent to KMAN to do, I wouldn't attempt to do it if you have no idea!

    I'd do it to my car but from experience not anybody elses as it will undoubtedly not go to plan.

    I've made 2 little mistakes so far. Melted the switch under the Mirror button. I had to get another, so thats an extra £13 on top. The other ould have been fatel, but in the end wasnt really that bad. I slightly melted the shaft that the speedo needle plugs onto. Thank got it was only slightly as if I shot that I recon it might have been another set of clocks.

    I like you would never do anyone else's, not even for free, i'm not experienced enough. I have really enjoyed it however and even thought about buying loads of door switches and dash buttons, converting them, testing them in my car and banging them on good old ebay.
