Race-ready for Angouleme: Part 5 - the Dash

Posted on June 9, 2009 at 6:55 AM

Well at last the parts are arriving for the TC, to keep things going I decided to wire up the dashboard. The Rev counter is a classic design by Stack with a tell tale set up which means that you can check on how many revs you gave the engine. I have tried to keep the dash as period as possible with a little burr walnut which should help calm me down when things dont go to plan on the track. The thirty light is being used as a oil warning light and the coloured switches are for Ignition and fan. I've also tidied up the bulkhead; I like nice clean spaces!


Update: I've also added a photograph of my repro speedo, it will be interesting to see how long this lasts! I've had it printed white on black as opposed to the genuine colours. I must say that I've never used a repro speedo on a race car before, I will let you know how it performs.
