    Lal,

    Do you have some settings turned off? I'm not having any issues seeing the pics.

    Colorado, Imogene Pass! I was in the 91 and the EFI had no problems. My friend in his 40 was having all kinds of problems with his carb.

    Dan,

    What's involved with acquiring and installing one of those overhead units? I assume there's a electronic box somewhere else in teh vehicle?

    Ali,

    It is very involved and VERY expensive. There are over a thousand dollars worth of parts alone.
    There is a magnetic field sensor that must be installed in the roof and the US roof has no provision so one must be fabbed. In adition, the sunvisors must be heavily modified to clear the console and a multiple wire harness must be built to travel between the magnetic field sensor and the compass.
    It is indeed a novelty but I would not do another myself.

    D-

    Hey kids! You can have the Asia-spec altimeter right now in EBay. Current bid price is US$1.00 . Hurry though, bidding ends at 7:15pm today, California time.

    Here's a pic:

    Drexx,

    that is not the right part. This one comes out of a 90 LC Prado and is dash mounted. I don't think that it can fit any LC 80.
