Nice however to me, its just more to go wrong :P.

I've gone for smiths gauges and leather seats. Can't really go wrong :P


There'd be no innovation/uniqueness (is that a word? :teehee:) if people just stuck to the same old boring things that everyone has O_O
Plus this little chap is so epic with electrics I'm sure it'll last longer than the car does.

Put some pics of your steering wheel up too if you've finished it yet. I'll have to come round sometime and just check your doing everything right.. :thumbsup: ;D

That's really well done! I love it. ! I'm thinking of doing something like that on my text mini. How long did it take to build?

haha thanks Paul ;)

Thank you :-) Took a few weeks, but doing other things too. I could do another in 2 days if I had the parts!

Cheers! It has an amp behind the dash, and I'm either putting the speakers hidden behind the dash pointing down into the footwells or on the rear heelboard. They're 6x9s :-)

I didn't use the tablet for that, the smaller screen just plugs into all the engine sensors :)

Ooooh I see, well you've inspired me anyway!
If i can hold of a UMS (ultimate mini squirt), i'm gonna use that + a bluetooth module to connect to that tablet (or similar) running shaddow dash MS: http://tunerstudio.c...hadowdashmsmenu
