    Love the dials, miss the one I had in my MK2 Astra GTE, great, until the bulb blew!
    By the time I'm finished the only unmodified parts will be..
    Rear view mirror, Door handles, Handbrake lever,Rear lights,Rear stub axles, bearings and brake calipers.

    A little bit busy with some other projects etc at the minute but I've got a little more done..

    Made up some spacers/shafts bushings etc for the various levers to run on and salvaged the bearing block from the gear lever that came with the sadev box


    As well as the knob/neutral release.


    And started making a new lever.

    Called into the machine shop on the way home to collect some pieces I had slotted, really wish i had my own milling machine for these simple jobs..



    I then fitted a pair of bearings inside the solid bar



    which will run on the curved ring and act as a detent to lock the lever in position

    Slow progress at the moment waiting for bits and pieces and trying to sort out re hosting all my images.. Anyway, managed to do a little more on the levers.


    A tweak to the handbrake so people with normal arms can reach it.



    Base plate made up



    Brake pressure sensors added into the hydraulic circuits front..



    and rear



    Made up a loom for them (in progress photo)



    added a screen to the dash to display the info when required.



    and re clear coated the bonnet as it had picked up some damage.

    Life's been getting in the way of progress lately but I finally managed to get something done..

    Lever base welded together and spacers made for the calipers to uprights.



    Searched the parts catalogues for a longer steering tie rod, with a smaller thread on the rack end so there was a bit more material in the rack spacers, then made the spacers.

    Made up the adapters from the new tie rods to the rod end joints



    Made up spacers for the rod end joint into the handbrake lever



    Made up spacers for the selector shaft rod end joint into the gear lever



    Made up spacers for the selector shaft rod end joint to the gearbox
