Hi Digger, they vary a lot by year, do you have a photo of your current one?

Star wars gauges?

If so believe someone was making copies for them.

No I am after a complete unit, I almost hand one until the courier company lost it after clearing Customs, but maybe someone out there can help.

I remember the Star Wars debates that used to go on here. It would be interesting if the scifi purists take a similar stance towards us i.e. "You're not going to use it on a bl**dy car are you!?"

Hi Digger,

I'm aware the direction of this thread is odd, given how you've asked for a cluster. It's worth a bit of background, that exact style of dash unit is/ was used in a couple of star wars films as a prop. The units are daftly rare, they were in the cars for around 2 years. There are very few of the cars left, so most people immediately assume the person asking is looking to build a replica star wars thing.

If you do have a car of that age, and can provide some photos of it, I'm sure you will get a more positive response. Everyone on here wants to keep any cars going that we can.

Cheers

Chris

Had lots of emails recently asking for the surrounds. Looks like the starwars guys are busy again.

Considering replicas are available it seems daft for anyone to be "destroying" originals

Does seem odd... The reps will be significantly less fragile!
