In Facebook, click on the pic to view it, then right click and 'copy image location' (Firefox, explorer may be different) then insert between the two [img]'s on here.
Same way I insert pics from my Google pictures account.

Yeh, I'll put something up a bit later Lee.

Did he give you a price at all cos most won't commit to something unless they know how much?!

I've got a rough idea wot I paid but it was year's ago & no doubt they've gone up!
Paul, the ones in the e bay link I put up are not for the 220 coupe he said.I have some info on prices now for you to put up on facebook.
They will be £40 plus £4.50 p+p, total will be £44.50.
Fingers crossed you can get some interested parties Paul.

Cheers.Lee.

I can't see why not Lee, It's 8000RPM & 150MPH, that's all u need! Maybe he's thinking of the Mk1, earlier Coupes...they should fit the later, Bubble dash ones! Anyhow, his price above is cheaper so we'll go with that :-)

Did you ask if he'll do the heater dials as well Lee?!

I'll put that info up for now anyway, cheers!

Hi Paul, Yes 8K and 150MPH are what we need.I did mention the dials and he asked me for a pic of mine. I will ask about a group buy on these to then.

Thanks. Lee.

Thanks Paul, for the link to the clock repair chap. Both the VVC clocks are now working. To fewer jobs on the list to do and two fewer irritations!

1998 1.8 VVC - Tahiti Blue/Red Piccadilly & Leather
1998 1.8 VVC - Nightfire Red/Red Piccadilly and Leather

Glad it worked for you mate...missing pixels are a bloody irritation & it's always good to tick the jobs off!
