EGR block off plate. Bit rough because it was the material I had.
Unfinished accelerator cable bracket. Can’t finish it until I have a throttle body and know what I am aiming for.
Despite a lack of enthusiasm for it, I got into the electrical side of things.
Here’s the raw blanking plates.
And then populated with indicator, and light switches. They need labels but L-to-R: parker lights, headlights lo/off/high, indicators.
Most of the important switches, and all the fuses and relays will live on a panel on left of the transmission tunnel.
This is to keep the weight low and back, shorten the wiring run, and keep it out of the way of damage.
And where I stopped:
Everything is in easy reach and should be identifiable to a gloved hand without looking.
Crusty, corroded fuse box is for set up only. I will replace it with a new one (hoping that Jaycar still sell these!).
I relented and fitted a switch for the ECU. Basically the battery isolator is “accessories” and the toggle switch is “on”.
The gauge is the fuel gauge. Seemed like a good idea to have it down there, but now I am thinking about some longer races, and being able to see it while you’re strapped in would be good.
Also have no clue if it will read anything vaguely useful off the Mirage sender.
Pretty happy with the way the isolator cable works. There’s a bicycle brake cable holder screwed into one of the factory holes in the floor - it gets tight when it is pointing in the correct direction, and is very close to the correct height.
I’m tired and my head hurts.
Pretty convinced that I will use the new Motec M4 that’s been hanging around for years. My tame tuner won’t touch it, but hopefully the dyno owner is willing to - will call tomorrow to find out.
