Hi

They were from http://etbinstruments.com/

They are not shown on the website and are a special order - I emailed them and asked about ordering the DNA 250 gauges.

They were 895 + vat.

Will you come? Yes - hoping the car will be done by then even if not painted.

Do you like the idea? Yes

What can be improved*? Nothing - be good to put faces to names.
