An update on my NOMAD loom problems. after a lot of hard work, still cant be sure of year of loom. I removed all the added crappy wiring. 2 relays 4 inline fuses and audio, speaker and spotlight wires. have finally got back to basic loom.
I have a 12 pin block connector that appears to be designed for the 2 pod instrument cluster . PINS no 7 and 9 have no connection. does this help with guessing year of loom??????
A friend from this forum has ID the temp sensor wire, coil, dizzy, and starter relay wires. also rear loom ID and lighting loom tidied but this will be moved away from the traditional location, due to it being too hostile
in bad winter conditions.rear fogs and reverse lights will be LED. trying to source some good but cheap lights, if there is such a thing. Opted for a 075 Halfords Battery.
i have been told that the car had a central speedo when the previous owner bought it. going to make my own dash out of MDF or ply and cover with fake leather. want to mount the 90 mph black speedo in the center along with the usual dials each side. my speedo has an inbuilt fuel gauge so was wondering which 2 gauges i should fit. will also be fitting amp,volt and clock.
As i run a Heavy TX from mobile, i intend to fit another aux battery in a wooden box built in on the bed. This will be charged with a 12.8 Voltage sensitive relay.
I guess that the usual fogs and or spots will be fitted at a later date. I have read up on the conversion loom for the change from pod cluster to central speedo. not looking forward to it.anybody got any tips????

catches for the sliding windows. thought about fitting land rover ones, Has anybody tried this. how good or bad are the dedicated plastic mini ones??
washer bottle and pump motor.
plastic trailer wheel arches.
any help with any of the above will make me a happy chappy.
