This is a sligthly improved version of the EAGLE / 67 AAR104 Spa Dash V1.0 add-on made by Rudy Dingemans in 2008.

I especially corrected the included 3do to be now compatible with 3D helmets and improved the needle positions. I did also some cosmetic work on the texture, enlarging the black background, adding some lines of rivets and changing some graphic in the instrumentation to improve historical accuracy, but I did not manage to change the clocking orientation as I wished.
  
As my friend Michel Needforspeed told me, this should be the dashboard used by Gurney in his Eagle AAR104 1967 from Zandvoort to Mexico, with the exception of Mosport. For those sick of realism as me, I would therefore recommend to use this one (v2) in my historical carsets for Zandvoort and Spa.

As Rudy Dingenmans said in his initial version: enjoi!

Thanks a lot for your update of the EAGLE AAR104. Outstanding job  :bigclap:
G. Spinning, what do you think of the quality of the dash (gauges) of the Cooper T81B ?

Hi Arno,

I had already seen your concern on the Cooper gauges on another topic but I could not understand why. I think they are very good and I too, prefer the JackSeller than the GPLA HR. But it is a tough battle. What you don't like of them?

I have a problem of bad resolution on the Cooper's gauges of Jackseller update. For me, compared to the Lotus or the Brabham, the gauges of the Cooper are very unpleasant to look  :confused: ! But I may be an isolated case... :idunno:

Just unzip, and drop in the proper car folder, overwrite if asked (do a backup first).

What exactly is the problem?

Doing exactly that. Than go to gpl to see if it worked. no change in dash.  Do you have to do anything different in unzipping a var file.  With the copier wheel, cant load track comes up
