Guys:

 

Progress has been coming along slowly.

 

I currently have the L26 running well, but have a electronic dizzy coming to hopefully make it run smoother.

 

I am currently working on the Inside, and have managed to get all the electrics working and interior dash lights, with the exception of the headlights. I reckon it has something to do with the stalk, cause the light switch does a full 360. Not sure how to fix this.

 

Still deciding on what to do with the Dash, and console area. Open to suggestions. It currently is cracked and no good.

 

I have the MSA seatbelts to install this weekend. Hopefully it goes all well.

I agree on the seats, miles better than the old ones. Your seat bracket is held down by more than two bolts though right?

 

 

With the dash, just buy the one from the black race car that is for sale on here at the moment and put a shift light in the hole between the gauges, done!

I already bought it a few days ago. Sorry Vivek.

 

Dash doctor on Sydney rd should be able to reskin it. They quoted me $550 and my dash is worse than yours

Hahaha yeh. they are held in with 4 bolts all up. 2 in the front and 2 in the rear. Just hadn't drilled them in yet.

 

I was thinking that, however its all the way over in QLD, and would be around 100 bucks to ship. Might as well get my covered for 550....

 

I really like this dash. Might splurge later on...

Why do you need a new dashboard? If you're looking to save some coin, have you seen the D.I.Y repair jobs?

I am considering giving it a go because when you re-skin a dash you loose some of the definition of the gauge pod edges. Also the re-skin means the gauges are harder to fit in due to thicker material.

 

For what it's worth I bought a second hand re-skinned dashboard so I have that option, but I'm going to give this method an attempt and put them side by side so people can compare them and see what they think.

 

I repaired my center console and I'm really happy with the way it turned out and I saw another member (skipz) did the same on his console and it looks really good, much better than the top-stage fiberglass reproduction he bought.

Hey guys,

 

just as an update, the car has been registered under club plates and drive well.

 

Here are some pics of the roof lining, looking to get the dash covered in the coming weeks!
