Go see Max Instruments @ Archerfield. They have VDO gauges that are very reasonably priced, and from what i've read they are very accurate, just don't have the street cred of other brands like Autometer. That said, they're far better than anythign from Supercheap.
The phone number is 32753066, and they are located at 17 Rodwell Street.


BTW, rough estimate is about $60 per gauge including appropriate sender. Very good price on a good quality product imho. So you'd be getting two gauges with senders for the price of one Autometer gauge.

Bummer, so close, but have to wait so long. I understand how it is though, cash being scarce in my wallet too.

well ok was talking of 17 for mine but been for a ride in mates 1600 and talking to the owner of the yellow stanza 40RST.
if anyone has seen it it runs a SR20 too. but they both had said that 17s are diffently alot more noticeable in cornering but getting on the lil too ruff ride side.
so on monday in my spare time i am putting some new tyres on the TRX wheels and also going to see a guy in albion bout welding me some pursuit rims for it.

only for kicks cos seen a 1200 ute with them and it looked PHat

so soopa i might need 4 more sigma rims plz so they can get the chop and shut treatment

also had a look in some books bout suspention. but prob just going superlows kings springs and gas shocks rear and heavy duty strut inserts

but in between that the car will live at soopas place for bout a week to get some cancer taken out so she will be grey and black stanza soon. paint will be the last thing on my mind so ill just spray on some clear coat over the undercoat ? primer? whatever you call it?

ok on sat i did some work for the boss as a sparkys offsider and so got him talking bout his old 1600 cos just am interested and got back to his place and when we got there he remembered that he had some ajustable
front struts with heavy duty springs in them.

which he will be giving to me :D woot :D so on monday if i get a bit of spare time i will be putting in them and ordering a set of super low springs and shocks to match for the rear

will most likely be in by weds :D so will not have to slow right down to a snails pace to get up roung the corners on the sunday cruse :) :twisted:
