A bit of wood work.

I have been meaning to make a gauge set for the centre console where the radio is currently.

I bought a wallnut dash but the colour of the wallnut did not match my main dash. So selling the old dash and make my own.
A mate gave me some off cut of wood and 20 mins with a jigsaw and a hole saw I have a centre dash.

With a little leather I covered the plywood and I have fitted three clocks, (the clock on the left is coming out for a water temp clock. Not bad if I say so myself.

Didn't I do well? I managed to get a set of 4 injectors for a 1.4-1.6L for less than £20.

They even came with the fuel rail. They have very little use as the car was barley run in when I got them.

The fabrication of the inlet manifold has taken a step further as I have ordered the laser cut inlet manifold blanks out of 12mm stainless steel. More on that on a later post.
