Indicators (obvs)

Side, dip, main

hazard, fog, horn

Simples..... ;)

I still have to do all the wiring at the car end - dashboard off, find the right wiring, splice in new relays etc - should be fun...

Latest freewheel code gives you hazards by pressing left and right indicator together! I trust you've got the chassis wiring diagram?

Yes, I know about the double-indicator press for the hazards, but I still wanted a button (for the MOT) and also because I wanted the steering wheel to be symmetrical - seven buttons would have made me implode.....

I have the original build manual, but I haven't read it - I assume it includes the wiring diagram?

Great minds think alike! :yes:

What did you use for the spacer between the front and back panels?

Impressive work, think you should cross out the "fairly" from "fairly happy"! Looks very neat.
