    Default Instrument panel & other bits on eBay

    Anyone wanting a panel for a GT-R replica, check this one out.

    http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI....ADME:B:SS:AU:1

    It is supposed to have come out of a 1976 C110 but it doesn't have the two warning lights for PARK BRAKE and BRAKE in the lower right corner.
    Just like a JDM unit.

    Unless you're talking about painting it silver, I believe the one to get is the GTX-E version that comes already brushed metal

    Yeah. I was going to buy that. The seller lives a suburb or 2 away from me.

    You're right of course.
    If you don't have a GTX-E unit I found a way to get a good result, thanks to Alfadog starting it off.
    First soften the plastic covering with paint stripper and peel off. Careful use of a hot air gun also works.
    Wash the plain aluminium panel with warm (not hot) caustic soda and immediately rinse with lots of cold running water.
    Wipe the panel end to end with either a coarse 'Scotchbrite' abrasive pad or 500 grit wet rub abrasive sheet making sure that at least the final wipe is one continuous motion from one end to the other.
    Clear anodise the panel to seal it.
    Comes out surprisingly well.

    we've seen that car before, but there seem to be no takers due to the rust

    too bad, because in other countries (eg england and northern europe), the rust wouldn't daunt a competent body man

    maybe because they're more used to dealing with it than we are?
