White secondary dials? Not seen that before, also the circular idiot lights between the speedo/rev counter?

Looks like Triumph on their 2000/2500 MK2 and Stag, a great looking dial with all warning lights and indicators built in :D

Looks very nice, however I prefer the traditional white on black SMITHS/JAEGER dials. The Triumph warning lights "gauge" is a great idea, very tidy. I have a few lying about to install in a wooden J-H dash that I hope to make and install in the future.

I always like the look of the S4 dash.
Is this actually a home-made version, or an actual S4 dash from somewhere?

I think Ron Clay aka Chassis Man was making a copy of the S4 dash years ago, although that was all I read somewhere once upon a time, on here I think,..was this one of those Colin?Image

Grant, there is a very interesting story behind the dash and the car, but because of certain legal reasons I'm not at liberty to say.

But it's an homemade dash, with the owners woodwork.
