I've done a bit more to the dash, decided it might look ok covered in the same vinyl that the door cards are going to covered in, well I went a bit mad tonight and covered the dash and the door cards

Built up the dash, the glovebox lid and demist vents will be painted body colour, when I've decided what that will be.

The early pic is the dash all in steel attached to the van - the later pic you have it on your table - youv'e cut it out?

So, what is powering the dashboard 'logic'? Arduino or is it an engine swap? I've just finished my first Arduino revcounter and have some X27 stepper motors to run from it.

Dashboard looks bloomin' luvverly!

I managed to get an NOS dash complete at the nationals a couple of years back, modified to take the mx5 clocks and whole thing just bolts in place

I had a quick look on the internet and it looks like the MX5 uses a cable-driven speedo so that will be fairly simple to run. What is the plan for the other stepper motor dials?
