Just go get some Klipan retractables from Repco etc. They're not cheap though!

Over the last 4 weeks i have spent most nights in the garage wiring up the mini.

I used the entire front end of the starlet loom and only kept the rear loom ofthe mini. I had always intended on using Smiths gauges which i have succesfully wired in along with the push button start button and the original indicator stalk.

The car also has reverse lights (both indicators come on) and hazzards.

Here are some pics.

I have a date with the engineer this weekend so I am hoping all goes well.

Looking good Dan.

Do you have to reach forward from your seat to get to the gearstick?

Dan, noticed you took the cradle from the halfcut and welded it in, good effort makes it much easier hey. Also mate excellent effort all round. That dash looks brilliant and I love the console setup excellent effort. You'll have to bring her down so I can have a squiz next time your Canberra bound. Should be a shoe in with the engineer...

Cheers

Matt
