    With the template located on the mounting studs, pilot holes were drilled from the rear.

    Then the holes for the gauges were cut from the front for a neat cut.

    The rest of the holes were cut by the same method of drilling from the rear then enlarged with a dremel to ensure neat edges.

    The dashboard still has the protective clear film, as can be seen at the warning lights. There is an off cut just big enough to make a new front panel for the lower dash with the adjustable vents, so that's the next job.

    Thanks. Just concentrating on one job at a time and trying to do as good a job as I can. The heater temp control would be better if it was chrome but apart from that it's ok.

    I am busy with the wiring and took delivery of some supplies today.

    Amongst it are such things as several multi plugs to connect the dash board. An interior light delay relay, it seemed a good idea to have the light remain on for a short time after the door closes.

    There is also a small supplementary fuse box, to allow separate wiring of the side lights, left side and right side. The CBS module is good, but it only has one fuse for all of the lights, which doesn't impress me much!

    I have also included various lengths of the correct colour and gauge of wire, for use where the original loom needs to be extended or replaced. When it came to the rear lights I decided that the neatest and easiest way was to use trailer cable. This will run from the under dash area to the boot. I plan to use the standard colour code for trailers, and the redundant earth wire will be used for the reversing light.
