i dont think a cheap instrument provider exists!

However, if you want a HUGE selection, try

www.egauges.com

they are american but ship anywhere.

Its speedos and rev counters that are the killers in price.

There's no pleasing some people.

Try this one.

http://www.raldes.co.uk/

Many products are the same as demon tweeks and merlin motorsport but less money,and there's a load of gauges.
Racetech electrical gauges are the keenest price.

I got my dials from ETB instruments as advertised in kit mags and used by nigel dean! i think that they are good value for money and great service. all are custom built to your order inc. calibration can have loads of different face colours/bezels/ neadles at no extra cost so are great for custom look! i got electronic speedo, rev, fuel, water,oil inc all sender units and p&p/VAT for 350. the quality is better than i expected, there is a review of their kit in Which Kit a few months ago, think its the one with Deans bule Westie on the cover.

for 350 quid egauges.com have a BIG selection.

Buying them was what I felt at the time a huge expense. I had this fully functional panel from the donor, for free, but it would have looked crap, so 350 quid it was then

Cockpit Royale look good tho....if you like period style
