ZR Clock upgrade/mod

Hi All !

Just having a bit of a play around and did the following clock mod ! i removed the original one and replaced it with the one in the pics, i had a spare centre dash section so did'nt care if it went pete tong ! in fact i am so please with it its staying in the car !!
The clock has display for time, alarm, just in case !! inside and outside temp, when i switch on the lights the back light in the clock also comes on like the original one, now just working on a auto dimmer for it ! i linked it all in to the original clock wiring using small brass plates to slide into the plug assembly, next project is to fit my volt and oil temp digital meters into the two airvents in the middle which should be a piece of cake !

I bought the clock module, then the fun began ! Making it fit was not to much of a problem, getting it to work was as the clock is 1.5v and the backlight is 3v !had to do some small electronics but was quite easy, total cost 16, that's clock and electronic components.
If any one wants one I can get and to all the hard work, you just have tO fit it !
If your interested pm me and we can chat.

Hunt7s will become famous soon enough
Point in the direction of the ebay listing of the clocks used... That looks allot better.
