INDIGLO EL plasma Speedo Dials

 see gallery using light bulbs  here      or  here with plasma best effect is using the plasma back glow sheets wired in with inverter

 

This custom  dial kit has been designed for Manual Petrol cars , it will physically fit on Manual Diesel cars BUT the rev counter  shows 7k not 6k. Some customers ahve fitted on 2.2hdi manual cars and it works fine however the rev counter is slightly out but if that does no bother you then its a match.

 

We have two versions  speed versions MPH dual speed UK spec and also Euro KMH versions

There are also two colors available RED or Yellow  rev counetr glow discs.

 

Automatic cars: - whilst this dial would physically fit in the speedo for an automatic car,

it would mean however, that you could not see what gear you are in,hence we have NOT  listed it as compatible,although some peopel have fitted it.

 

The illumination of the rev counter in yellow or red will need the following

mods to the instrument housing to achieve a good rev counter glow.

 

This will need require basic diy skills or can be performed by bringing the

car to us at our workshop or by sending us the speedo by mail order for a fee.

 

This modification (removal of plastic gearselector  housing ) only needs to be performed if you decide to use light bulbs  If you opt for plasma then this is not a problem as the plasma disc sits over the automatic gear selection housing that makes a shadow normally- see pics.

 

To prevent the shadow shown  below it will be necessary to modify the housing by essentially removing the plastic, this is necessary if you do not buy the plasma lighting inverter kit.

 

This housing is used for the automatic gearbox cars and would normall display

P R N D here for the gears.

 

We show you  how we removed this plastic housing to get rid of the shadow, even manual gearboc cars have the plastic housing in the speedo for the automatic display but it is non functional.

 

See below for further images of 406 indiglo plasma gauges s and dial kits, first photo when used with bulbs not plasma . The plasma glow disc covers the PRND plastic shape and gives a brighter dial without modifying the speedo .

Look at the rev counter area you can see where the tubes are that are used for

automatic cars and show  P R , N , D , if you fit the plasma part you dont need to worry about this.

 

above: This is the part we need to remove

 

 

 

 

Unclip carefully with small screw driver and lift glass out
