Sei Dash Backlights and dash template

Hi, I was just wondering if it would be worth getting these (will include link in next post as I need 5 posts)for my Sei as I want to change my dash. But is it worth it? Also does any one have a template for the Sei dash (insert) I know there's a thread but nothing was uploaded just emailed this was a year ago.

Re: Sei Dash Backlights and dash template

They are worth it if you can pull it off but they are an absolute pain to change!

They wont be a simple plug in job, you will have to solder more than likely the new bulbs onto the existing dash circuit as well as remove the old ones using a similar technique. A steady or skilled hand more then likely required.

Sei_rory is currently in a very similar situation.

You could buy lockwood dials if you mean that by an insert. Not cheap though

Re: Sei Dash Backlights and dash template

Those are the ones.

They only fit a sei which is an MPI though (00-04) as they have an digital milometer display whereas an spi has the traditional 'clock' style milometer and the dash lights etc are in different posistions.

Lockwood do not make an SPI one so if you have an spi then this kit, although it may fit, its obviously unacceptable due to no probable mileage readout and the dash lights in a different place

I noticed that, I have the SPI unfortunately, I might try scanning and making a display as shown in this thread https://www.fiatforum.com/cinquecent...own-dials.html
or just give up on that idea.
