2000+ GTS 6sp Gauge Faces Preorder *w/cheap led combo packages*

*Update*
I now am doing package deals w/gauge faces for people that need LED's.
These prices are for preorder, and.. I think they're pretty damn good smile
If you've already preordered a gauge face, just shoot me an email, and I can get the LED's to you at this price.
here's the prices.

gauge face $50
gauge face + red led's $65
gauge face + blue led's $85
gauge face + white led's $85

These prices don't include shipping, nor sales tax if you're in CA.

Prototype pictures are at http://rjautoworks.com/pictures.php

Order page is at http://rjautoworks.com/products.php
---EDIT-----
the gb has started on this, and production has started.. they will be ready the week of the 20th... and will ship out within a day or two of me receiving them, testing fit, and transparency... this is the final product that is going to be done.
---END EDIT----
Hey folks.. not sure if you guys know or not, but I'm going to be doing a production run of oem fit colored gauge faces geared for people that have/want led conversions.

concept drawings of the color combinations are here
http://rjautoworks.com/products.php

pictures of early prototypes can be found here (pics don't do the night shots justice because my camera can't do long exposures)
http://rjautoworks.com/pictures.php

Preorders for GTS 6sp gauges will start January 1st, 2003. Minimum preorders to get our first production run will be 25. Once we have 25, production will start, and they will be ready to be shipped out in 10 working days from when the production order is placed.

Price will be $50 + shipping (ups ground)($7 across the country). CA residents will have to pay 7.25% sales tax which is under $4.

I need a definate answer for this, so I can get it all ready to go, and make sure there are 25 people as close to the beginning of the year as possible to get production started ASAP.

Please also specify which color combo you will want.
black/blue is a little iffy at the moment because I don't think there will be enough contrast during the day.

That sounds GREAT... Count me in for the GT (Black/White)Gauges. Let me know as soon as they come out. I am definitely interested. Hey, 00CericaRuss! Do you also sell the Blue LED's that would light up the numbers? Because I already have the Blue Temp/Gas LCD and the Blue Needles. Or do you know anyone that sells them?

I guess I don't have the same LED's your talking about. Because the one I have only lights up the needles but not the Background. But how much do you sell the Background LED's for?

I'm guessing you have the import intelligence kit.

I think it's around $25 for the 13 led's in blue.

That's Right! I have the import intelliglow needles. The price sounds Great. I would definitely purchase both the 13 LED's and the Gauges. Should I pm you in a couple of weeks or will you pm me or will you post it in the forum.

Hey, Russ! I have a question. Does this NEW Gauge Face that you make replace the original OEM Gauge Face or does it go on Top of the original OEM Gauge? Meaning, can you remove the original OEM Gauge Face or do you still have to keep the original on?

stun, this is a direct replacement for the oem gauge face, the stock one will have to be removed to install this one.

steven, celica001, I'm going to pm you guys some info.

preorders start at midnight, and should be complete by around the end of the week.

I've gotten some of the stuff started w/the shop already, but since it's a short week, they probably won't have some of that stuff done until the end of this week. I'm going up there most likely friday to discuss the color combos and whatnot.. everything before that is just prepwork, and getting all the artwork ready for printing/cutting.

supermatt... all this is is the replacement gauge face. if you have orange, you'll still have orange light, if you have blue light (cuz you changed your led's) then it'll be blue.
the gauge faces are pretty much geared for the people that have changed their led's.

I will have led's in stock in about a month or so as well, but there's other people on the boards that do sell them.

selling's going... lower volume than expected, but that's generally what happens... people talk.. and talk and talk... but when it comes down to things, they don't act.

gts auto... waiting till the gts 6sp are done

I think you will make more business when the GTS AUTO and the GT Gauge Face comes out.

I am ready to buy a kit for an auto gts, whenever you have one ready. I was also wondering do you do a kit with a white backround and a green led converson. I can pay now if you need it to do the order. Let me know.

Thank you

auto gts isn't ready yet... but i will let you know when the time comes...
I'm thinking the best bet for green would be a white face w/black numbers, which would light up green at night by swapping out the stock led's to green ones.
