Morning people , yet another question.

 

Going to fit an analogue clock into the factory dash enclosure designed for the compass / stopwatch etc. So before i purchase the dash panel i need to find out what size the hole is that accepts the gauge so i can order one that is the correct size. They seem to be available from Speedhut in either 2" or 2 5/8" sizes.

 

So if anyone knows the size of the hole in the panel or the outside diameter of a genuine gauge it would be good to know.

 

I dont want a genuine one as the hands seem to fall off , no point in  having a compass or a stopwatch for the daily driving that i do.

 

Thanks in advance.

That is perfect , many thanks.

 

As you said the 2" one will be too small meaning i would need to make an adaptor spacer to take up the difference , the 2 5/8" (67mm) looks like it will be too large to fit into the bezel so i can rule that out as i am not butchering a new (expensive) panel.

 

Thanks again.

 

Regards - Kenny

Finally got the modification complete , couldn`t bring myself to part with almost £600 for just the clock then having to faff around wiring it into the car so i purchased a genuine panel for £100 + vat then got myself a 52mm clock from a company called R-Spec as it matched the rest of the dash (black / white /orange pointers) and made myself a stepped stainless steel bush to fit it to the panel.

 

Not full factory spec but to the untrained eye it looks ok , plus the hands shouldn`t fall off :thumbup:
