Dashboard

Fiesta Mk3 indicator/headlamp switch with self cancel on turns, plus Hayabusa instruments set into a carbon dash. I changed this from the original Westfield dash which was clumsy in my opinion to this which is much more simple and i can see all the gauges rather than looking through the steering wheel.

Here's my effort:




Still plenty of work to do on it yet. The wrinkly look in the middle is where I used packing tape to stop the resin running everywhere when I widened the dash

Sort of worked

I'm going to pad it but still not sure whether to finish in black vinyl or what. Car is middle blue (or will be)





It looks like the Midget is winning at the moment......

Dashboard Guts

First I would like to thank you all who posted pictures, this shows that there are several ways to skin a monkey succesfully.
Due to a back injurie , I´m forced out of the shop for a while, so no heavy weight lifting-lugging around, but I think I can do my dash as the elements are light weight,
To the ones that posted, I was thinking if you have pictures to post of the back side of the dash where the wiring is.
Another thing i was wondering was how did you managed to pass the wiring through the firewall, Grommets, Firewall connectors, Firewall strips, etc.
As per the above, I´m planning to finish my dash in such a manner that I can install-desinstall as a Unit.
Thanks in advance for posting ideas.
Seasons greetings.
AA

On mine (not shown), most of the wires from the dash go to the fuse and junction boxes mounted on the firewall (made of plastic in my case, so not really a firewall, then), and others go down through an opening in the transmission tunnel to the engine bay, and on to lights etc.

Although the majority of wires are in convoluted tubing, it is a real mess under my dash. I would love to have someone help me clean it up so I could unplug things and eventually replace the dash.

RK,
Thanks anyway, as stated on my original question, I was trying to gather information to make some kind of modular installation.
Thanks again and regards.

Picture of mine. In answer to a question above, when I re-wired mine I terminated every single wire with these. In this way I can detatch the thing as a unit if I have to.

Any help regarding the number and functions of switches that I may be overlooking would be very appreciated.

Like others, I have been looking forward for ages to posting my completed effort here....

Some inspiration from jabbahutt and one other (who I forget as their photo has long since vanished into the 'hard-drive-with-a-hole' in it) but theirs had the beading around the edge.

Thanks, guys.
