Speedometer/indicators have died

Fitted new LED indicators and rear taillight today, along with flasher relay.

Connected everything back up, all working fine, went for a test drive, everything fine for about 20 minutes and then everything apart from engine and front headlight died.

She starts up/runs fine, but Speedo and everything on it is completely blank, and indicators/hazards are dead.

Any thoughts?

No haven't changed any of the stock fuses. Been looking at the wiring diagram to see if there's a fuse/connector that is common to the faults but can't make head or tail of it

You blew a fuse. I did this too when I first hooked up my LED lights. It's a 7.5amp minifuse. I'd go buy a box of them (5-10). They are pretty cheap.

You'll have to figure out where your problem is. What I did is:

1. disconnect all LED wiring (aftermarket)
2. one at a time plug them in to test them until you blow the fuse again
3. fix the one that is causing the short

Good luck. Stick with it and you'll find the issue eventually.

Cheers for the advice mate! Will give that a go.
