As a cheap fix you could strip the dials off your original clocks take them to a vehicle graphics company and they should be able to scan the dials and then print the text/numbers onto white vinyl that will stick over the top of your original dials Cheap but effective

Think it does include fitting the dials, but don't think it includes removing the unit from the car and replacing it as on the website it says it will take 5 working days. Think you have to take it out and post it to them.

Mind you I do quite like the white dials, but I'm unsure if I prefer them to my black dials.

Abbott Racing is a business, not a charity - hence their prices.[/b]
Yes, but if they put their prices down to a realistic level to compete with other dealers they would shift a damn sight more stuff, but then again if people are prepared to pay their prices then they will never reduce them. I posted before that if they marketed square wheels they would probably sell a few sets..

They will have a cost, they have a sale price and what they make in between goes towards the costs of running their business.

It says Abbott quote:("Work is carried out on original dial head. Allow up to 5 working days)"

So I suppose that means they must take your one out ??

I work for the large drinks company, we use a German contractor called Krones AG to service/maintain our high sped line, they charge £75 per hour for a man so in the scheme of things Abbott ain't that bad.
