    Justin, I've recently purchased a spare instrument cluster to practice this & a few other little jobs on before addressing mine.

    Good plan. What else do you have in store for your cluster? Integrated Racepak dash...😜

    Another way to fix this issue is to remove the reflective coating all together by rubbing it off with paint thinner. This leaves 3 windows which you can then stick an LED strip over to shine directly at the dials. The LED strip is spliced to the wires for a nearby bulb that lights up the dash vent slider label. Works with the dimmer and everything. I used a strip like this https://www.supercheapauto.com.au/p/sca-sca-strip-light---led-12v-30cm-flexible-black/386326.html






    That's a great idea Timm! I did read some people have tried LED strips but I didn't see any evidence that the dimmer would still function. In most cases they were suggesting the dimmer wouldn't work with LEDs due to the reduced voltage. How long have you had your LED strip installed? So the strip doesn't rely on the reflective coating at all and sits on the outside of the window/tunnel? I'm sure this will make more sense once I've pulled out my cluster.

    @Jason E - We can have a crack together if you like. What's the worst that could happen...huge fire and it goes up in flames!

    As an aside, thought I would post up this very handy tutorial for those who might go one step further from the cluster and pull the whole dash out for recovering. @brian in buddina How is your project coming along?

    Thanks for the link. For those who have changed their bulbs, can you confirm which style of T10 wedge globes are best i.e. I assume we want an even, wide light output into the reflector housing rather than one or more LEDs that are directional/pointed forward away from the ballast?

    This one is supposed to be an even '3D' beam:

    This one is a quad LED that seems to point more forward than up:

    I see Suercheap has this  Nulon High Zinc Mineral Street And Track Oil 5L 3 pack for $108, tempted to give it a go on my rebuilt motor once run in, I will be doing regular (prob 6 monthly) oil changes



    I don’t know anyone who has used it but the basic specs look alright to me. I’ve read that we want a minimum of 1600ppm zinc but I’m not sure on what maximum is counterproductive. 2300ppm is up there.

    Fitzgerald #4 and #5 968 Turbo RS's together this morning.  All 5 cars are now in Melbourne so we'll have to try and organise a gathering.

    Geez you Melbournites need to stop hogging all the RS Turbos. Share them around with your fellow states. :P 

    @Ossie - Have Fitzgerald produced five replicas in total now?

    Hi Justin

    How would you find what spine you need without having to pull one out.

    Would be interested, just need to find out what my car has.



    Hi Rickie

    As I understand it, if your car is a later model than those listed above (i.e. S2 or later turbo) then you likely have a 25 spline axle. If you fit the range above you should be a 33 spline axle. I recall your car is an NA 2.5L so ‘should’ be a 33 spline (at least from the factory).

  7. Selling a set of four brand new CV (constant velocity) joints

    These are an upgrade over the OEM joints and have a larger, stronger cage and ball bearings

    They are Empi branded 33 spline inner race

    I understand they will suit:

    - Porsche 924 1977-1982

    - Porsche 924S 1987-1988

    - Porsche 944 NA 1983-1989

    - Porsche 944 Turbo 1986-1987

    In as new condition. Only selling as I mistakenly ordered these but require a 25 spline version.

    Happy to post Australia wide

    $300 for the set of four. Price firm.





  8. Good to hear Porsche have been cleared over the pass. Another one for the trophy cabinet!

    I agree Matt Campbell drove an amazing last stint with those fresh tyres. The 911 couldn’t match the grunt of the V12 Aston down the straight so he had to get creative with his pass in the twisty section. Awesome to watch! I will be tuning in again next year. :D

    There is a very minimal increase in noise, but that's about it. I changed to an only944 shifter at the same time, so shifting was improved anyway. 


    Hi Timm

    Keen to get in touch with you re the A65 poly but your PM box appears to be full/blocked. Shoot me a message when you get a moment. :) 

  10. Hi Zacc

    Will you be indexing the torsion bars yourself? If not then I’d think about the investment to properly setup your new coilovers. I understand it takes several hours to properly index torsion bars. If you delete them I believe you will have greater flexibility and simplicity of adjustment. Could be worth it in the long run. I’d be keen to hear other’s thoughts on how the ride/handling changes with and without torsion bars.
