Clock delete- oil pressure light- any other ideas?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi all

Anyone done this?

There is a Patrick Motorsports kit available - USD 60 and then USD100 shipping!

And anyway I want an orange light - not a red one.....

Stuttgart Classica were selling kit too- no longer.

Currently thinking of mounting a Hillman imp amber indicator light onto a Rothsport clock delete plug - but they are nearly USD 50 for a piece of plastic.

Open to other cool ideas- I don’t really use the clock, I have a race battery so always use disconnect switch- so clock is always wrong!

Anyone?

Thanks

Clive

I have a cold air vent in mine.  It’s got a Ford swivelling vent in it; perfect fit.

This was an old mod back in the day - never thought it looked all that good...

I have a genuine RSR clock delete blank in mine. That looks pretty good.

I bought this from someone on here ages ago thinking I might delete the clock but never got around to it and now I'm sure I won't do it. I paid a tenner I think. Yours for a tenner posted if you think you want to go that way.

Rev limit light.   You can drive it straight off the red wire in our CDI+ box.

Have to admit, I don’t understand clock deletes.  You lose the Classic 5 dial symmetry, one of the most recognisable features on these cars.

And replace it with Fiesta part or a 50p bung? 🤭

If ventilation is poor, maybe fit one of the Achtung Kraft under dash vent re-directors and keep the clock in place.

Hollywood Speedo do some funky stuff (at great cost, no doubt) but would keep the symmetry intact - and my OCD satisfied

As sat nav would be pretty cool in place of the clock. Something switchable. Like on the 981 boxsters/caymans. Nice kit that 👌 That bloke down in South Wales would sell quite a few I’d imagine

I had NHS make me a three-piece gauge to replace two of mine so I am still symmetrical. Five dials is overkill on a lightweight and who needs a clock!
