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.

Still not had chance to do much but have been picking up a few things to keep me interested.

Rear window - MGB GT rear screen obtained - got one with the rear heating element - might end up going with lexan though / still thinking about the bigger window option....

Foglights - got Marchal ones - will need some restoring but love the look of them.

Wing mirrors - bought some from GT Classiche - no longer on their site so can't show till they arrive - they looked pretty good on the photos though.

Dashboard is ready to be cut - I'll be measuring and marking and double checking 3-4 times this time!

The Lexan rear window is the boss! MGB-GT window just doesn't do it for me.
Ordering the Lexan kit from Grassbank this week.

Yes, the wider 250 one. Rive them a ring for pricing. Expensive to ship to the USA for me.

I'd advise anyone who is thinking of building a kit car whilst studying a BSc and then a MSc not to bother!

Finally handed in my thesis and successfully defended it today (I hope!) - so back to the build!

I've not been up to even see the car in a while so having to read my own thread to work out where I am.

First job is going to be getting the seats in. Oder the metal I need to fabricate mounts and going to get them done asap. I'm not even worried about going for sliding - I always have the seat back as far as it goes so no need. Yes, might be a problem if I sell on. But c'est la vie for now.

Interesting developments in the world of replicas I see, but this was never going to be an attempt to look the same - will likely get some badges made that "recreate the spirit".

Other than that - expect lots of questions as I try to remember what the chuff I was doing and struggle to find posts I read before.

Great to see this on the go again! Question for you - you don't happen to have the front wings that you removed from the Z3 do you? If so are they rust free?

My dad has a Z3 and the front wings have gone rusty from the inside out along that horizontal panel at the rear of the wing. He is in Co Wicklow so not too far from you.

I'm 99% positive I have - I'm hoping to get up to the unit this weekend so will let you know for definite. From memory they were in good condition.

Cool, I'll send you a PM so I don't clog up your build thread with spare parts talk!
