was it pricey?
 
I have thought about the fibreglass repo ones, but would probably prefer to have it reskinned, your looks great

Dashboard Dr in Melb. Was 450. The one i had reskinned was pretty bad and i thought ready for the bin, they did an awesome job. Gotta pay to play i guess.

thanks for the info.
Price is pretty fair, it looks a great job.
 
If I decide to keep the car, I'll do the same once its been painted.
Cheers

So it was a lovely day on sat i drove the car to work, on the way my fuel gauge stopped working, started again and now had decided to stop all together.

Ive checked connections and they seem all ok, im pretty hopeless with auto elec so any hint on where to start would be great. From my quick reading it may be the voltage regulator on the back of the cluster, although the temp gauge is working as per norm. Second guess would be the sender unit, wonder if i can get that rebuilt if needed.

Anyway have a random photo and ill keep people updated

Looking good as always...
Electrics aren't my thing but you should be able to test the tank sender by hooking it up to the multimeter, you might need someone inside the car to let you know. There are companies that can fix senders, problem I had was finding the gasket/ o-ring to refit it if its rooted. I ended up making one out of a sheet of gasket cork.

Thanks, i was going to ring Gaugeworks tomorrow and see if they can rebuild and from my facebook searching it appears a few in Melb can do the job, local would be an ideal solution tho.

I did see that rarespares do a replacement sender for a XB that uses the same size gasket as the escort so that may solve that problem but ill have to confirm. Im such a stickler for the small things working this is going to drive me nuts. I might just chuck a 5l jerry in the boot as a back up plan.

Cool, let us know if the XB one works it'd be really handy to know. Good luck with it.
