What posses people to think anything will be gained by airing all this out on a public forum?

Initial complaint - fine, it looks like we as a community have worked through it.

Greg we all thank you for taking the time & effort (and money) to work through this. Yes these situations suck, I see it day in and day out at my friends local shops.

Can we not move on???

Everyone can read the above posts. Everyone can make their own informed decision & opinion from them. Continuing to pile on serves zero purpose, none, nada..... imagine what this place would look like if we have 50 people who felt the same as you, and such things need to be endlessly hashed out.

If you have issues with anything Greg said - PM or call Greg - this forum is NOT here for people to endlessly air out grievances. Especially between people who are otherwise mostly cordial to each other.

If anything this is between Greg & Roger....Jake too but he doesn't chime in much. They don't need your help on this one.

Alrighty, that's fair. I'll self-ban from this thread.

My apology, carry on.

Yet you keep asking some of us to post threads calling in to question other vendors/specialists practices which you know will end up as a pile on session. Then it will all get deleted and no record of the grievance shows up when others need it most.

Come on man, can't have it both ways.

Well that's pretty low, comparing this debacle to those situations. Hope Roger doesn't see this. :icon107:

This is really simple though, the "pile on" part is what gets those threads shut down 99.999% of the time. See Doc graciously stepping back here?

Yes, and thank you for that feedback.

Look, I really don't care either way, just voicing my opinion that anything after post 25 / 26 isn't really necessary to keep hashing out the issue(s) at hand. But if you guys disagree...have at it.

I just know for a fact the majority of the people who view this forum don't like seeing this infighting between you guys. Just an FYI.... As Trump would say: "I hear a lot of things...."

I wasn't "attacking" anyone in post #19....just sharing my experience....which was and still is..."a complete disaster", for me.

Suddenly, I'm the bad guy because my installation went badly?

This is a very interesting place.

Note to self: Do not share your experiences, if they are negative in any way.

You aint no bad guy Greg. We've been trolling Hacker offline so he's a bit touchy today. PMS or some such thing. :D

GregBBRD 11-17-2017 02:25 PM

Excuse me to Hell.

Went back and "fixed" it. You guys can go back and delete your posts with any reference to anything I said and no one will every know that anything negative was ever said.

Everyone happy, now?

Can we see a picture of the kit? Im about to order and would like to see it.

Speedtoys 12-02-2017 10:39 PM

Just installed this,and SHOCKED i took no photos.

I had one issue, being it was a very early unit, but a swap from Rog and all is well.

Works wonderfully.

How do you know if you have one of the very early units? I bought one many months ago and have yet to install it. Is there a way to tell?

The only issue with the first batch was on 83 cars. An extra post hole in the CB was required. You should have no issue with 82 & 84 cars. Best way to contact me is [email protected]

Snowglobe 12-04-2017 04:36 PM

Just received one. Thanks.

Ok, some feedback on the instrument cluster circuit foil for the 82-84 cars.

Just installed one (not me, my electrician…) on my 83S and after 35 years “sleeping” my instrument cluster comes back to life!
All is perfect, all fits well, only one small problem that I’ve told Roger and he immediately come with the solution, after contacting the maker of the circuit foil, Brian Lutz.
The “Stop Lamp” warning light after the engine is running and after the first press of the brake pedal seems to not going completely off, it stays lighted very dimly.
Coincidentally I found on Rennlist an old thread of someone with exactly the same problem with the same warning lamp when doing a Led conversation.
The solution, told by Roger and Brian Lutz and confirmed here on Rennlist by Alan (thank you all) is the following:

Install a 1k (1000 ohm) 1/4 watt resistor across (in parallel with) the offending LED. This increases the overall current drawn by the LED/resistor combo and causes the LED to be completely extinguished when it is supposed to be off.

Hope this helps who needs to install one of these!
