Fitting white dials

S14 Tech Guides

Fancy giving your instrument pod a bit more of a sports look? Fitting a set of white dials can transform the look of your dash and lighten a dark interior (if only marginally!).

I obtained a set of newly designed Lockwood white dials from Apex Performance. There are sets for the S14 and S14a and they are also available in silver. The instructions that are supplied have been written specifically for the S14/a and are very comprehensive. There would be little point in repeating them, so I have scanned them and they can be found here:

Lockwood guidelines for fitting S14/a white dials

Please use the instructions in conjunction with my photos to help visualise.

During his 'car years', Christian owned, ran and modified a Nissan 200SX (S14) and Nissan Silvia Spec R (S15). He was an active staff member of the UK 200SX Owners Club and one of the founding members of the S15 Owners Club. He owned and administered the club for ten years. Over the course of five years of Nissan ownership, Christian wrote modification guides to aid others. These guides have proved very popular with 200SX/Silvia owners all over the world.

Included with the guides is a record of car ownership over a ten year period.

Christian is now car-less and lives in the public-transport-friendly city of Helsinki in Finland.
