I have a 1988 restored mini. Came with an aftermarket two clock dash that I'm not in love with. The two clocks are the SPI type, just a speedo (which isn't matched to the engine/drive ratio so reads 10% low) and a fuel/temp gauge (with temp gauge reading never off the cold mark).
So i'm looking at some changes, with more informative gauges (needs tacho and oil pressure etc). I could mod the dash to accept what I want/need, or perhaps swap it out entirely for a center binnacle style.
I like the idea of gaining the front shelf for stowage. But does this eliminate front windscreen defog ducts and other heater related items?
