need parts for an e30 cluster
hey guys,

i wrecked the plastic bars from my cluster today that have the check engine / parking brake writing on it. does anyone have a cluster in parts that I could grab just those plastic inserts?

preferably one that has anti-lock on it.

Brian from the club has one (and I gave him a shifter knob a little while ago) so we'll pull it from his parts car.. But if it falls through I'll come knocking.

Where's that CD Dave?

I've got one in parts sitting in the garage.

everlast 02-13-2008 10:36 AM

Like, its already taken apart? How much would you want for the inserts? It would save me ripping apart Brian's.

chromius 02-13-2008 10:44 AM

yeah, I used it for the tach and odometer gears. the rest of it is still there. I don't remember if it has ABS or not though, I'd have to check. I could let it go for $200:) j/k it's yours free, it otherwise would have gone in the trash.

everlast 02-13-2008 11:02 AM

kewl, that sounds great to me. i'll take it. I'll try not to wreck this one.. *grumble*

just let me know when you grab it and we'll meet up and i'll buy you a coffee

chromius 02-13-2008 11:07 AM

Sounds good. If I may ask, how did that break on yours?

everlast 02-13-2008 11:11 AM

Well, I saw a dood on e30tech who tinted his. It turned out great. I've tinted many things with nite shades spray, so while it is apart to better mount the stainless rings, I'll pulled the inserts out and tinted them.

I guess the solvent in the nite shades is different than what the other guy used, because it actually ate the finish on the front and the lettering ran. Now it kind of looks like a motion blur effect in photoshop. Oops.

chromius 02-13-2008 11:26 AM

interesting, I've never heard of tinting those. You have a link just for curiosity's sake?

Jay do you need the front plastic cover from the cluster? If not would you mind parting with it? My current one is scratched to shit. Thanks

edit: found the tint job. It looks pretty good minus th cf

everlast 02-13-2008 12:22 PM

Nope, I don't need it, but I will take your scratched one to experiment with then ok? I'm going to see what tinting the whole unit looks like.

Blacked out dash FTW.

Sounds good to me. Thanks a lot Jay and Adam
