    First, forget about your line-level converters. They are a passive device and don't require any power from your vehicle's power circuits. Their job is to reduce the voltage from your speakers down to something friendlier for your amp and no external power is required to make that happen. Not sure what you mean by testing the plate lights wire and you don't say how. If you turn on your parking lights, with your multimeter set up to measure DC voltage, you should be seeing 12V at your plate lights. Now, hopefully you're taking the initial measurement by putting the probes on each of the two terminals that feed the plate lights. If you have nothing there, the next thing to check is if the ground is OK or not. The way to do this is to keep one of the probes on what should be the 12V wire and touch the other probe on a bare metal object nearby, such as a bolt, chassis, reinforcement bar behind the bumper, etc. If you get the 12V reading I described above, that means the light is getting power and the grounding has been buggered up. In which case, you need to trace the ground wire and see where it has been severed or perhaps not even bolted into the body/frame to begin with! I dare say it's going to be something as simple as that. Judging from what you've mentioned so far about the audio install, your installer probably used the bolt that grounds the lights for your amp and didn't put the lights back under that bolt as well. Take a look at where your amp is physically installed - follow its ground wire and see if there's anything floating around near where it's bolted to your car that looks like it should be actually attached. Confirm it with your multimeter by doing a continuity test, to be sure it's actually going to your lights. As for a short circuit, trust me, if you say that your fuses are OK, it's not shorting out anything, otherwise you'd be blowing fuses constantly. This is the opposite of a short circuit, or what we call in the business, an air gap.

    OK, good advice. I pulled apart my VDO moving coil gauge. Looks ripe for one of those steppers. Let me play and i'll update the thread in due course.

    Replaced the front uni joint in the front propshaft. There's another story just in that- circlip grooves not machined correctly in the joint bearing caps. That took a while and lots of swearing to figure out. Can't replace the rear joint yet as I need another joint from the manufacturer as those bearing caps are just too far out. Anyway so far under full acceleration I haven't noticed any of the previous problems. No surging, clicking, funny gearchanges etc. I did change the transfer box fluid as well which may have helped a bit. The only thing left to do now is check for high speed vibration which I'll get round to soon. Fingers crossed!

    She's alive again, feels much better low down and spools up early... Love this idle..

    R31 v s13 = r31 is a challenge to go fast thus why I have one gtr v evo = gtr is a challenge to go fast thus why I have 2 If I didn’t want a challenge I would have a evo and a s13 and go to Mardi gra and run my own float

    At the time of the movie though, all the Leroy types were fawning over it cause the JDM was too mainstream Safe to say a combination of rarity / collectable and those movies are responsible for JDM sky high prices. No surprise that the vehicles with the most gained from it are those featured as heroes in the movie...34R, Supra and RX-7. S2000 has also seen a good comeback on pricing. Then again, Jap classics like Hakosuka, RX3, VL Commodore and 2000GT did it just fine without movie power behind them.

    So this took a lot of stuffing around, but I reckon it was worth the effort
