Glad you sorted the wiring anomalies, much easier now than later.

Respectfully suggest you drop the boot box in, then have a good look from underneath/wheelarch, to make sure no cables or pipes will rub on it. Then have a good look at the wiring and pipework, and satisfy yourself that it's adequately supported and tied, before final fit of box. Just my thoughts.

Good idea. Will do

Put the boot box in place. Checked underneath and happy that cables are all tied back

Now that my dashboard switches are working I've screwed it on , fitted the padding around the dash using Velcro and even put the gear stick knob on :d

Rivnuts and a thin foam to seal it. You will be potentially asked to remove for IVA. You may need to change a throttle cable at some point which is silicon'd in would be a ball ache .

As Justin says, I used silicone after the IVA around the top to stop rain water coming in.

+1 for foam strip and rivnuts128532064_Screenshot2019-03-13at10_06_27.png.a930e044aef72cf32a4c153eabe2427f.png

Again +1 for  foam strip and rivnut or just tap an M5 thread into the chassis members.

Was not asked to remove for IVA, but know others have mentioned this.  Avoid the silicone route as it will be waterproof, but a nunney to get off in the future. 

Good idea to be removable when you lose something down the footwell and future proof as TJ says to access the beddles and cables, unless you are Mr Bendy. :westy:

Dont forget, fog light only works with ignition and headlamps on!  Granny and suck eggs I know, but just in case ;)

Yeah, realised that one pretty quickly. The scenario is , ignition on, turn it on ... bulb is on ... turn it off ... build is still on! ... turn it on ... bulb is off!!! .. turn it off ... bulb stays off .... and repeat the whole cycle !?!!? :bangshead:

Have you got a latching fog lamp switch instead of a momentary one? It’s a common issue for the wrong one to slip through, as earlier Westfields that didn’t have the controller circuit built into the loom needed a latching switch. The new loom needs a momentary version, though the switches look the same from the front. 

You generally know if you’ve got the latching type, as to turn the fogs off, you have to turn the switch off, then back on again!
