    Do you know if the Supra instrument cluster will fit the 2.0 Litre Celica?

    you mean MA61 cluster into RA60/RA65/SA63?

    in which case yes it fits but the wiring is all arse about. You have to swap over a shit load of pins (or in my case, I removed the Celica plugs and then wired up the celica wiring (and some extra wires for the fuel level sender) to the Supra plugs. You also have to change the dimmer control (and associated wiring to the cluster).

    I'm 95% there with my RA65 with MA61 cluster but am yet to test a few things and also the dimmer is not right. Build thread (see sig below) will eventually contain link to documentation of the wiring change.

    Yes, it is the MA61 into a SA63. Thanks for the answer, maybe I'll just wait for your documentation! Haha, sounds like it's not an easy switch!?

    yup, not easy but if you like the star wards dash, then possibly worth the effort

    It can certainly be done, I've got a celica dash in my MA61. Get the plugs to suit the dash, and spend a while working out where everything goes. Not that hard, just tedious. Beware! '+B' written on the back of the cluster actually means 'earth'. NFI why.

    Thanks for that. So you have the analogue dash? Why did you decide to make the switch?

    TBH I'm not a huge fan of digi dash from a functional perspective. Add that to mine flaking out on me repeatedly, and you get the picture. If analogue dash fks up, the speedo still works at least!

    Going to go off topic here, but would you also happen to know where to obtain a cap/cover for those holes in the boot. I think its for the shock absorber?
