I'd love to get this done but I'm in Lancashire,so it would be a mega drive......if you posted your clocks you'd prob be without them for 4/5 days and risk of getting damaged in transit...

Why does he have to be so far away..

I agree his work looks great. But what's not so great is the distance between Glasgow and Marrius

Have you thought about giving it a go yourself? I had mine apart a while ago but the tip on my soldering iron was too big. Not had another go at it yet. Need to get a new soldering iron first. I had the same problem as you. I'm in Manchester, seems to be nobody up north doing it

Ignore the comments around the M logo. I think the Guys on there thought I'd tried to back light it.

It just reflects the flash.

Why not get a set off eBay for 40 and use those while yours are being done. Then get them done and sell them off for a profit. That's if you don't need to get them coded.

I posted mine to Marius and I've received them back. A few of my dials are now off. Speedo and fuel level. Know if this is calibrateable?
