Astina BG - Reverse Glow Gauges ... GB?

Well i have been doing some research lately and this is what i came up with...



Does that look familiar? Well its out of the Mazda MX-3 or Mazda Eunos. Only difference seems to be the clock as it lights up blue! [i think?]

It seems to be a direct copy. Now this open's many windows for us if it is, i am looking into getting some 'Reverse Glow Gauges' and maybe try and organise a group buy. Also alot of other interior dash bits look to be compatible!

This is what they look like.



We would be looking at roughly US$10 - US$20 and then postage

I will email the seller and see whether i can get a postage quote on 10 and 20 amounts.
