didn't all the al25's come with them in aus? i figured you guys should have lots of them down there.

is it for you to install in your corolla or a friend with a terc?

Hi David, Its for me, I want to position it in the Corolla center binnacle under the diff lock switch (like you I like the radio up high so I won't be getting a 7 gauge instrument cluster put in. It will be a fun little mod to remind me of good times in the Terc. So to be honest I don't even need a shroud. Has anyone tried to make the inclometer fit in a DIN space? could someone please measure an inclometer for me if they have a minute? cheers.

Tercels are really hard to find over here these days. There used to be a lot but then we had a mining boom so everyone got new cars and wrecked the older ones! There was one in a wrecker here a couple of years ago. I kept offering the guy money to take the inclometer out for me but he couldn't be bothered! So annoying!

I have one without the mounting bracket and some broken tabs that would work fine for what you are doing. Let me look into shipping options.

Thanks Mr B Badger. That sounds Good. Do you think it could be made to fit a 178 x 50 x 181 (WxHxD) millimeters DIN slot? or at least the internals? Doesn't' really matter if the face stands out a little from the dash. Thanks mate!

I'll try to remember to pull it out tomorrow when I get home from work and take some measurements.

I've been advertising for a couple of weeks in Australia but no inclometers have turned up. So still keen to get one from states if anyone has any (with the wiring if possible) to sell and is OK to send. cheers in advance.

Thanks for that - really good of you to help with that. Looks a bit bigger than a DIN slot (2-1/8" by 7-1/8") I'll take the tape measure to some areas on my dash though and see if I can come up with a spot for it. the all-trac has 3 din slots but I'm also considering above the rear view mirror. will get back to you soon cheers
