I am very tempted to buy a set when funds allow but the wiring frightens me.
Here are some instructions that came with the gauges

Speedo will probably be the hardest.

I have these gauges in my mirage 250 , how do you set the time on the clock?
does the little knob need pulling out to wind it to the correct time .?

The instructions say to put a finger on the chrome advance knob (donít press it) and after 4 seconds it will begin to advance.
I have taken a photo of the instructions for you

I have instruments from the same company, but with different faces, in my 250GTO.
The diagrams already posted are the same as the ones I have.

I also have the speedo and tach diagrams along with the speedo calibration instructions:-

Default Rover seats

Iíve been making up a couple of wiring harnesses so that o can move the seat switch gear to the centre of the car behind the handbrake. Just the car side to do next. A local engineering firm is making some brackets for the base of the seats to attach them to the car.

Default Seats, carpet and dash

God Iím slow, but enjoying the ride.
Just finished installing the electric rover seats after dying the carpet black from brown and spraying the dash black.
Yellow seatbelts as the car will be yellow when finished in 2022 haha

Default Dash and Console

I know it wonít be to everyoneís taste but Iíve nearly finished the dash. Installed a double din pioneer unit that gives me DAB radio, rear and front cameras, Bluetooth and apple play.
Used the cortina gauge pod, mini switches

The wiring for the gauges was very straight forward except for the oil pressure w. I bought a small manifold so that I could use the existing oil pressure light sensor but it wonít fit in so am thinking about where to take the feed off.

Default Itís starting to get exciting

Got the old girl MOTD this week so now itís time to get to the exciting bit, stripping the rear end off the car. I am going to take erichomes path and do it in sections so the car can be driven in between.
Sills, side panels and boot off today😁
One question. When the panels are off it is a good time to do some protection in places that canít be seen. My sills are hood with a bit of surface rust. What do people recommend I use?
Thanks

Boot is rested in place. Looks like there could be quite a bit of work to get the levels and shut lines correct. Never done this before so will have to see how I get on!!!

Iíd suggest you have a read of other 250 build threads to see how others have approached this.

The good news is there is usually more than one way to achieve the same result.

Good luck, Paul.
