Lockwood Dials (looking to swap, would also give away)

Postby 378S2 » Thu 01.10.2020, 02:52

Hi Folks,

I’ve ordered a set of white on black Lockwood instrument facias to replace the white ones currently fitted.

Unfortunately they do not stock white on black for the three sisters (boost, oil, battery).

Either...

1. Are there 9 other people who would like to buy a set so that I can meet the minimum order? Or,
2. Does anyone have white on black three sisters they would sell, swap or donate? Or possibly,
3. I’d take a set of red on black sisters at a push if there’s someone out there who prefers the silver.

The silver set is in MPH, but I need KPH hence the swap.

Sadly, Metal Monkey stopped offering these a while ago:

Maybe they should be referred to as the 3 Sheila's Down Under rather than the Fun Boy 3 :lol:

The link in that thread doesn't work any more but...
Metal Monkey may have moved on to other products but the dials were surely cut by machine from artwork stored on a computer? If so, they may still be able to make them.
It is worth sending them an email. If they say 'sorry but no', what have you lost?

So, there i was going through my Lotus Esprit parts looking for an Item that someone on LT was looking for and i came across these for the M100. The mains were fitted for a day, then removed so are 'almost' new :) The three sisters were never fitted These come with the instructions and everything needed to replace all faces, importantly you don't need to remove the needles to install these. Pm me with an offer, but no firstborn as i already have one of those :lol:
