Where does he market them?
Or does he just sell them out of his shop?
Donno...I searched for him on the web in attempts to find a web site. Came up empty.
I got the pic posted above HERE and is really the only way I know about him or this sweet looking gauge panel.
Hoping to see what it looks like with gauges installed and an approx. price.

ANYONE!?!?!

Jim has a shop in Gardena and his phone number is on the panel in the photo. That would be the obvious way to get in touch with him.

I called and talked to him about 3 weeks ago. I ended up talking with him for probally 45min super nice guy. He asked what I was building and had a ton of great information and ideas to make things alot easier. I learned more in 45 than I did all year probally. I think the cluster and shipping was like 90 and you could get a couple different finishes, you had to send him a check and he would send it when he got it. He was really surprised that I seen the cluster on the internet

Jim is a super nice guy and has been in business working on Land Cruisers since 1971.

I wrote his phone number on his gauge plate when I posted it. I first met Jim when stopping in to check out Mr Qtips rig when it was going under the knife the first'ish time. :D

I had some work done by him last year. He ended up doing a good job with some stuff but I was a bit surprised at the end results. He relocated my whole engine, t-case, and drive lines for me.

When my buddy and I started pulling stuff apart I was surprised to find a lot of the driveline bolts and transfer case bracket bolts really loose. He's an awesome guy and super knowledgeable but after having paid 2k and having my rig there for 3 months I can say I expected a little more. That being said...the gauge cluster is awesome though.
