So... lets get a wiggle on then eh?
First of all, we go for an MOT with Frankendash in place:
I mean it's cool and all that, but they need some numbers to write down on the test result!
Thankfully, our Very own Jaster headed over with a dashboard that had been liberated in the Lakes car raid (a car that has given SO much, to so many on this forum!). The dash itself was the super early version, which meant the info centre wouldn't work (Plug connector pins the wrong way around), so we have a bit of a Hybrid dash that has an early Rev/Speedo, later infocentre. The lord of dashboards is going to send me a 48 litre info centre board, as this one is running the later 60 litre board). We did however, swap a new speedo cog in, just as a matter of course. Good job really, cos oh look!
So, dashboard reassembled, it was time to make the interior whole again!
And for good measure, I raided the last of my stock for this, so we now have a matching working pair
And yes, I threaded the belt through!
So.... that's about it then.
Only one thing left to do.
I did that too!
, it failed first, but only because he had the bonnet up whilst trying to test the headlamps! He was very apologetic when I explained (and he then remembered from the previous year!).
However, given that it is it's first MOT in nearly 8 years, I'm quite pleased!
So ready for the new owner? Hmmmmmm..... There's still some minor fettling I want to do.
Infocentre is the obvious one.
Make a handover list of recommendations is another.
A damn good wash, polish and photo session is definitely another....
