Non working Dash gauges, kart seat

As per the title i am looking for some dash gauges, they dont need to be working........

Why you ask?

I am building a lotus 49 race simulator cockpit so to make it more authentic i want some gauges for the dash.
Ideally smiths gauges, a dual water and oil gauge, fuel pressure, oil temp. Condition not important Need to be cheap as chips or a few beer tokens.

Also after a kart seat or single seater seat for the same project. Again needs to be cheap as chips

Will post some pics of the build if anyone is interested.
Early stages as yet. Just got the wheel and pedals rigged up and drawings to work to


Cheers paul

Then i searched, they was quite cheap new.
