My name’s Ric, and I like knowing how to do stuff.

When I find particularly cool stuff to do, I like to share it with people.

This blog was put together as somewhere to host a few HOW-TO practical guides to things that I’m interested in, rather than having them stuck on lots of different forums that I couldn’t keep track of.

I’m usually happy to help if you’d like any steps clarifying for any of these little projects.

Hi Ric I pmd you on forum.miata but I figured I’d try you on here too. Wondering if your willing and if you have time to make me a custom gauge face set like the one you and Adam have. Thank you and I look forward to hearing back from you.

Hi, sorry – thought I’d replied. Unfortunately I’ve sold my Eunos and I gave away all my gauge face spare faces to a friend. They’re relatively easy to produce yourself though – Adam’s guide is pretty thorough.
Good luck!

I appreciate the reply. I’ll try and do it myself. Trial and error I guess lol. But what’s a winos?

Hey Ric sorry I tried the template on adams site let’s say I have absolutely no knowledge on how to use any of those programs. Do you by any chance have the finihed gauge faces template file still? Thanks

Drop me your email address and I’ll send you what I’ve got in PDF format. Have you got a Miata with 140mph speedo?
Take them to a local copy shop and get one layer printed on thick paper/thin card, and the other two on acetate, then glue together as per Adam’s guide. He makes it sound a little harder than it really is, although I’d suggest you get a couple of copies made and get a new, sharp exacto knife to help you!

Hi Ric, Just wondering if you still have a decent colour mask layer for the mk1 mx-5 dials. I seem to have deleted mine somehow :-S. If you do I’d really appreciate a copy. Thanks, Tom
