Looking good!
Curious question about your steering wheel setup with the removable boss, do you find that the steering wheel is quite close to your chest?
I had mine setup the same and found it was quite close and didn't know if I liked it that close so took the removable boss off. Been trying to look at low profile bosses but all the ones off fleabay are pretty much the same and after seeing one on a customers car they have way too much play in them.


It does bring it closer, no doubt. It's not so bad for me because I'm a total short arse - I had considered a weld on one for this reason though. In terms of fleabay items, I've heard pretty much the same and at least there's no play in the B&G boss.

In short, the speedo arrived about two weeks ago but I've been ill and busy. Today I wired it up as a trail fit before the dash gets sent off:

I also noticed the bolts rusting on my steering wheel - these were the ones supplied with it, which is somewhat shocking. I switched these out for some new ones:

New:

I appreciate this isn't the biggest of updates. But it's all in the detail :-)

A little sneak peek at something David Wilson is planning. This is in ply (what a great service as he created this mock up) but the proper one will be a custom DSN panel.

I'm also beefing up the wiring with a new auxhilary fuse box from WBW - again it's going to solve some of the previous owners wiring solutions.

I've been looking for a rear fog lamp that didn't look bulky for a while. Found JB Fabrication via another post on here and it arrived yesterday - fitted today (wire it up later)

David Wilson has also been really busy making me this beauty. I cannot wait for it to arrive:

It looks like it was probably anodised and then had the symbols machined into it rather than them being decals.

spot on. They are engraved in, an aftermarket addition :-)
