    *** Quick Update *** Added a paypal button to the website, so ordering process a little easier. Also have started listing the dashes on eBay, but I'd prefer if you purchased direct through the website. Cheers Dunc

    Gents, my last post update on the console didn't work, and some how this site missed out on the production release of the console. my sincere apologies. I thought i'd posted it, but its definitely missing. Here's the details. Pricing is $185.00 (Including GST) + $15.00 P&H, but I will be running a startup special of $155 + P&H for ozdat and datnet members. if you contact me via e-mail, please quote Promo Code DAT510 to get the discounted price. I'm going to hold this pricing till end of the year. for the next 3 or so weeks for Datnet members only. please e-mail me the code and your Datnet details (profile name) The website is up and running, so please check it out. has pics of the unit installed. Please e-mail me at sales@gilsonproducts.com.au for your order, and check out the website too, www.gilsonproducts.com.au. Cheers

    Hi All, Firstly I've nearly completed the design, the project got shelved for a few weeks as something else took priority. stay tuned for a couple of pics shortly. apologies on the delay but i think it was worth the wait!!
  9. Datsun 510/1600 Centre Console

    This might fit in with the change i'm considering on the gauges.. might be an option. thanks.

    Thanks turbovan, will enlarge to suit.
  11. Datsun 510/1600 Centre Console

    Thanks PSI510, I agree with the angle, and have another idea that could assist with this. I wanted to keep it universal, but the concept i'm thinking of will fix this problem. instead of the 3 gauge pods, i'd have a blanked off area where a panel could be fitted that tilted toward the driver. would work for both LH and RH drive vehicles as well.
  12. Hi to all, I've been working on an idea/design for a new centre console for the 1600, and have finally got a working prototype ready to post up for comment. I have been posting on my blog in further detail, but below is a picture of the prototype in place. note the prototype is a machined ABS, so please ignore the colour, this is the fitment trial. http://www.gilsondes...au/blog/?cat=20 The part will be a textured finish black ABS (as close to original as possible) and will fit the stereo in place properly, and house 3x 2" gauges of your choice (keen eyes will note the boost gauge for testing!!). note the holes will be pre-cut. I have to make a couple more design changes, and the part will be off to get the tool made, and then she's ready for sale. mainly I'm concerned with the viewing angle to the gauges. Appreciate any comments or further ideas. Cheers Duncan
