I'm trying to use the Thomas Laechele Honda cockpit update, but something is going wrong. Below are pics of before and after the update. Obviously I have some mismatched parts. What I did is install GPL via GPLPS method, so that's the starting point for my Honda folder, and then I unrared Thomas Laechele update into that folder. Can anybody help? Point me to the right method of installing this great cockpit update?

There are two different Honda cars represented in the GPLPS version of G.P.L.  Early in the '67 season Honda had the RA273 with the cockpit gauge layout in your first image.  Later in the year Honda introduced the RA300 (or Hondola) with all of the cockpit gauges grouped in one horizontal row.  The Thomas Laechele update is ONLY for the RA300.

If you go into the cars/cars67/murasama folder you should find option folders for the alternate cars.  Just copy the contents of the RA300 folder to the murasama folder allowing overwrite.... then add the Thomas Laechele update files to that same murasama folder allowing overwrite.  Should do the trick.  :)

It seems I don't have RA300 folder, it's all RA273. Can anybody post a link to RA300 car?

If you used the GPLPS installer, it's all  in C:/SIERRA/GPL/REPOSITORY/GPLPSINSTALLER folder (or wherever you've installed GPL first).
Just remember to delete all files in the SIERRA/GPL/CARS/CARS67/MURASAMA folder except the MURASAMA.DAT file, which is the main car. After that, you can use all the updates you like after extracting in it the GPLEA RA300 file found in GPLPSINSTALLER/GPLEA/CARS/HONDA :)

PS: Sorry for capping all the addresses, it's a old habit of mine since I used MS-DOS 4 on my dad's IBM AT in the mid 90's ^^;

EDIT: Oh, looks like you've beaten me by 7 minutes. Boy, I type slow ^^;
