    Hello, I am new here. I have had my Mk1 roadster since 2013. I bought it completed and have been driving the stuff out of it ever since. I am looking to change the dash to the competition style, any help to point me in the right direction would be appreciated! Thanks.

    Hey guys, I have been aiming to get a Cobra since I was 14 and first learned about the car from Gran Turismo 2. I finally managed to get one on 4/27 of this year! I bought one that was already registered and titled in NJ (I have two jobs and no time to build the car, let alone fuss with the...

    I have the Ron Frances complete wiring harness and the gauge set is supposed to "snap" in. The connections are completely wrong. I have the "vintage style" gauge set rather than the modern set. Does Ron Frances make 2 different types of harness for the different gauge set or am I going to...

    I'm in the process of wiring the dash and am having some problems with oil pressure and water temp gauges. I'm using the FFR electric classic gauges with the supplied sending units. First with the water temp. From the gauge, there are 2 wires that go to the sending unit. When Ii heat the...

    My first attempt at covering my dash with the marine vinyl and 3m Super 77 didn't go well. I got my timing of the glue off or didn't use enough and got a couple of air bubbles. Then I read in another thread 3M didn't list 77 for this application anyway. I had a double reason to...

    I am looking for a MKII Dash in a pre-cut Competition Style Dash Layout. I constructed the factory five dash with donor gauges installed now, but have the reverse gauge set in 4". Does anyone have a dash available for an MK II?

    New, from my Mk3, I decided to do something different so this is unused and just taking up space in the garage. These seem to go for $50 plus shipping, so that's what I'll ask - I have the box that my blank dash arrived in, so I'll ship this out in that. If you messed yours up, want a backup or...

    Here's a photo of my dash, gauges not yet connected, just temporarily hung. I know it looks like everyone else's, but this one is mine! I ended up using the marine vinyl from Joann Fabrics with some white felt to give it just a bit of padding. I used 3M #90 to attach it and it worked great...

    I decided to take the advice of some of you that brought up the valid issue of the heater blower motor being in the engine compartment. I made a one off fiberglass housing to use the FFR Vintage Air heater core. The fan is a 120mm high volume computer fan and it seems to move as much...

    Last night was my first drive after dark. I intentionally took some unlighted back roads. Freaking awesome feeling. Literally roaring through the night. Headlights still need a little adjustment but they provide plenty of light for me. Add the Tangent driving lights and visibility was way...

    I was all excited this past weekend to get my dash installed but I ran into a small problem, not sure if anyone else had the same one. I have a small gap between Mike Everson's under dash panel and my carbon fiber dash. I tried to pry up the under dash panel but its pretty stiff and I'm afraid...

    I bought two hole saws to drill out my carbon fiber dash and will never use them again. 3-5/8 " 2" They cost me about $30 together, Lennox brand. Only one came with the center drill bit piece which you can swap to the other saw. I'd sell for $25, shipping included.

    I've searched and searched to find an answer to this question. I like the street layout from the FAQ section: http://www.ffcars.com/FAQ/csx31090r.jpg So, I obtained the blank CAD template from NiceGuyEddie. However, once I started to draw on it, I noticed the two main gauges around the...
