I ask about the price of B16 CAB once and all I got was "it'll be just over £3k, would you like me to check if its available?".

It wasnt!!

I've been in the garage like the mad professor over the last few days. I've done LOADS and very happy with some wicked ideas. Nothing major but cool all the same.

Reverse camera is in possition
Stereo suround is all made ready for stereo wiring to be finished / tidied up.
As soon as stereo is in, the heater switches can be relocated along with air vents.
Fit new clocks
Clock surround need finishing with boost gauge relocation into its new "top secret" possition. (I love it when a plan comes together)
Turbo Timer is being relocated where boost guage used to be.


I love being in this frame of mind where I cant wait to get home, fuck off in the garage and coming out a few hours later head to foot in filler dust.

Numberplate mounted reverse camera. I didnt fancy cutting into bodywork. Couldnt think anywere else to fit

Stereo in possition almost all wired up, just need to sort reverse camera etc. Also needs bracket securing.

Then my favourite piece. "Head Up Display" boost gauge. To get the numbers to look right on the window I needed to dismantle a perfectly good gauge. lol.

After fitting some reverse numbers cutting a big ass hole in the top of the dash we have head up display. The photo was half way though build and doesnt do it any favours. Its perfetly clear and the base I made now fits snug. Plus the dash was hanging off and when it was put back in possition, its now a bit lower down the window.
