New 82 to 84 Instrument circuit foil replacement kit
 
The 928sRus printed circuit board replacement kit is designed to replace the no longer available and prone to failure, flexible circuit board that resides on the back of the gauge cluster. The circuit makes the connection from the vehicle wiring harness to all of the gauges and warning lights. The factory flexible circuit is notorious for tearing and nearly impossible to repair. The new fully redesigned replacement circuit is made from a combination of high quality hard circuit boards and wiring. The circuit boards are a much more modern design and aren't susceptible to the same issues that often plague the factory flexible circuit. This kit also comes with new warm white LED lights that consume less power, but keep the same warm incandescent bulb look.

This kit is designed to fit ALL 82-84 Porsche 928 Instrument Clusters - USA/CAN & ROW cars.
One circuit foil 928 641 973 01 fitted all cars 82 to 84 - USA/CAN, ROW, Euro, LHD & RHD.

The kit includes:
New Circuit Boards
New Warm White Indicator LED lights
New Warm White Illumination LED lights
Plugin Wiring and Zipties
Installation Instructions

I have a limited number available after I have covered the current waiting list. Requests to [email protected] only please. Requests in this posting will not be considered binding and email requests will take a preference.

Price is $385 per kit plus shipping.:jumper::jumper::jumper:

Good job Roger! I was always nervous about handling the instrument cluster on my '84 due to the NLA foil--I was always worried that if I damaged it somehow I was screwed. Great to have vendors like you developing these replacement parts and keeping our cars on the road!

Email sent, order placed!!!

I've been waiting for this for years, thanks Roger!!

Roger,
One qiuestion, not really very important but only curiosity.
With the new instrument cluster foil does the dimmer still works or not?
Thanks

The illumination LED's will dim with the dimmer, but the amount of control will be less using the LEDs. Meaning that the dimmest setting will likely be brighter than the dimmest setting with the incandescent bulbs.

Any feedback on these? I'm curious how they are working? How was installation? My speedometer died about a month ago and from the forum searches it looks like the most common cause is a bad circuit foil.

Well, a common cause can be corrosion on the rivets between the plastic and the 'hard board' under it. That can be soldered with a bit of effort/skill.

Dwayne covers it very well.

Heads Up!!!
I have another batch of 10 arriving early next week with back orders for 5 of them.
Lots of extremely satisfied customers.

The early 78 foil is under development and will be also available soon.

Thanks for sending the install manual Roger. This is on my list in the next couple months. Just recovering from the 5spd conversion right now. This area has plagued me for years on my car. I won`t know how to act if all my dash pod functions correctly. !!

"The early 78 foil is under development and will be also available soon."

Looking forward to info on the above.

Hey Roger, this kit is definelty on my list. Can you, or in that case can any one reading this who has installed the kit, post a nighttime picture of the gage with the dimmer at both the lowest and highest setting?

Thanks in advance!
