  • Smd conversion in aberdeen

    hi all

    I would like a smd conversion for my dash.I would like red/white so wouldn't be changing the speedo etc.Is there anyone in the aberdeen area that can do this or willing to help me out for a small fee.I am just not sure how easy it is to solder the small smds.

    Any info or help would be appreciated.

    Thanks
    Darren

    Its not hard if you are good at stripping the part and can use a soldering iron but as i say you need to know what your doing as some very small parts and not cheap to replace if it goes south.The main screen is your big problem, if its a 07 car on.

            Darren, I think Ravin Beef (Steve) will eventually be doing these for people. He's a really busy guy, but also very keen to give new stuff a go. He might even be able to give you a few pointers if you want to give it a go yourself. x

                That's right Ashley, ..I bet Adam (Stampede) wouldn't mind coming up to Scotland to do some SMD conversions if there were enough people interested. x

                      You will need to join AON, and pm stampede, Actually he is on this site to, altho very rarly pops his head on. He also does a postal service, I was going to be sending my parts to him, He only needs the fascia part, not the whole radio and heater controls. And will post them back once done.

                          its defo in the software for the cid since its full colour anyways, i cant imagine anyone has ever attempted to change it, i think it matches reasonably well at night as its already blue (mostly), it looks alright with my blue smd's anyway
