    Help me identify my gauges

    So, I need your help miata gurus. I recently bought a complete cluster off a JDM import NB RS. I know that panel, rings and needle covers are AWD items, but I need your assistance identifying what the gauges are. Now, these were installed in Japan, as the fuel is in kg and speed scale at km/h (and the UK owner had added an MPH sticker on top of it). Fuel, oil pressure and water temp look a LOT like AWD, but both tacho and speedo are different. In addition, high beam indication is integrated in the tacho, albeit not clearly visible in the following pics.









    Any leads?

    The more I look at them and compare them to other AWD setup pictures, the more AWD they seem to me. Needle stop is exactly the same, and so do the 3 smaller gauges. The high beam indication/hole thingy is also identical.

    The weird part to me is why the rev counter is gray. This would indicate either a weird one-off from Dewa San, or that someone peeled back the top blue layer from the rev counter only (why would anyone do that???)

    I don't know, but that AWD Panel is so ugly that you should let me have it....

    That tack gauge with its "Rev counter" logo looks a little like Revlimiter's style, at least the REV part. Maybe a ripoff?

    My .02c?? AWD. The surround and the rings tell me the whole setup is AWD. Blackened out rev counter could simply be a custom order request, same as Adam with RevLimiter can do. Everything from the font to the small bolts holding the faceplate to the original Tach is right.

    AWD Harry

    The rest is AWD for sure, it even has the correct nuts at the back of the cluster. Bonus, this whole thing is from a JDM NB RS with only 56 or 58k kms
