  1. Main dash vinyl re-done, to match the new panel. I'm happy with that.
  2. Thanks guys. TIB, if you need any pointers when you do it, just give me a shout. Fixing it to the dash was a bit of a challenge.
  3. Though I'm just about to swap for something a lot wilder, with a high stall converter to make full use of it.
  4. Similar cam to what I have currently got fitted. Bucket loads up low down torque.
  5. Got fed up with the radio installation in the glovebox that I did. The door wouldn't close with the front fascia in and you could use the remote with the door open anyway, meaning you drove around with the door open all the time. So, I got rid of the glovebox and made up a new dash panel that has the radio and a little rotating ash tray in it (to be used for small change and the like). I'm adding some storage elsewhere to compensate for losing the glovebox. Very happy with the finished panel. The vinyl doesn't quite match the original stuff used on the main dash panel, so I'll be re-covering that to match. I bought enough to do both.
  6. LOL! Hopefully it will sound good too. Well, certainly better than the original.
  7. Been having a little fun upgrading the dash speaker. Didn't want the hassle of trying to route more wires to the doors, as the grommets are filled with the electric window wiring. Radio will be going in the glove box. The speaker has twin connections, running a dual coil driver and individual tweeters.
  8. I just used a relatively standard inertia switch, including a bit of the cable and connector, cut out from a scrapped car. Most of them use the same part. About the size of a relay, with a rubber cover on the top with a reset button under it. Grabbed my one off eBay. Make sure you get the connector as well.
  9. Non servo with a big straight six up front? Sounds terrifying! Personally, I'd prefer a bigger servo for mine.

    Did the auto brake pedal go in the end?
  11. Oh wow. I'm sure I read otherwise. Maybe it's changed since. Free road tax for me next year then!
  12. On the three way connector, black is 12V ignition feed, green is 0V ground, and yellow is the signal return. On the motor, green is the 12V slow feed, and red is the 12V fast feed.
