    Euro bumpers sandblasted..




    Anyone in the bay area that needs parts sandblasted or powdercoated, highly recommend Spray Technology in Santa Clara, they can sandblast entire cars too

      What company did you use to have it shipped? Was the shipping included with that $400 or how much was it? Awesome build. You're doing it right.

              Shipped it through my uncle's friend in Germany. He ships cars between the US and Germany all the time. Just had to ship it ground to Germany and sneak it into one of the containers.

                I worked a bit on the car, got side tracked on the weekend.
                Got my cluster all finished up though, added a small speedo



                Dropped the euro bumpers off to get sandblasted aswell, I'm going to paint match them
                I think chrome looks bad on delphin
                The picture isn't working for some reason. I have been thinking of doing a dash similar to yours but couldn't find a good speedometer solution. I was actually thinking of mounting it in a pod in the A-pillar since its the least referenced gauge for me :).

                Still drive it on the street sometimes so a speedo is nice to have.

                  I linked that one from dropbox since my flickr is full, but I guess that doesn't work, fixed it.

                  I originally wanted to run a digital speedo since you can read it without even looking at it, just by peripheral vision, but the price wasn't justifiable for me.

                  I got this speedo from the Speedhut website, cost just under $100. It's pretty customizable, you can choose face color, illumination color and the needle color. I chose an illumination color that stands out from the other gauges so it's easier to read at a glance
                  It has built in calibration.

                  I can't say anything about functionality yet (vibration, speed at which needle can adjust, etc.) until I test it.

                    Sweet. I was having a hard time finding one smaller than 3-3/8" diameter. Most are that or 5" which is way too big. I didn't want to eat that much space for a speedo :) Ill check back to see how the speedo you got works out.

                        Hah. That's true.
                        But mileage doesn't mean anything when damn near every part on the car is new
                        :nice:

                          couldn't get much done this weekend, caught a flu virus or something and felt like crap all weekend.

                          Did some painting with plasti-dip

                          Some trim



                          mtech spoiler


                          picked up some recovered sport seats


                          Did some little things in the engine bay




                          waiting on a bunch of stuff being shipped so I can move forward

                              I also like this thread, cool gauge cluster, but i like the oem one a lot too.

                                Gauge cluster looks awesome! Black powdercoated eurobumpers would look really cool on a tracked delhpin, imo...
