    So I think some of you know that I made up a custom plate to fit shift light indicators into the regular VR/S auto console.  So I am going to make one up to suit the regular 4 speed.  Just finished modelling the prototype and printing the first off now :good:

    I made one up for my 2 speed Glide, for that I designed and had made a custom sticker.  For the 4 speed one it will work with the existing plate.

    So have just finished the second prototype.  Happy with how its coming along so far.  Gotta love Holden making the pacing between each gear indicator an uneven number!

    So unfortunately I am away from home for the next few days, but when I am back with check the fitment in the actual console, as slow35 had a an issue with the lights touching the shift mechanism which curiously I didn’t.  Once I have this one sorted I will put some thought into the nicest way to do it for 3 speeds and 2 speeds.

    Well as Slow355 predicted there is a small issue. With the lights I used (which are fairly long), they do foul the top of the shifter. I think what happened is when I did mine, I shifted them to the right slightly so probably just by luck they didn’t touch, but if we want to line them up with the original plate like we do they are too long.

    So I will need to source different lights, maybe LED’s like slo355 used. Should be a pretty easy change though as the body itself fits perfect.  All part of the game I guess :hmm:

    I might be keen for one as I may well be doing this conversion early in the new year.

    Thanks mate, took a little more than planned, but the good thing is once you have it right, they should just come out the same each time.  Not the greatest pics but this is how the prototype came out, hopefully get some pics once he has it installed.

    These are now for sale, they fit perfectly.  They line up with the original cover plate, and use LED’s available from Jaycar.  If you are running a T400 or Glide only fit the ones you need.  Price is $55 posted.
