Happy 4th July!
Decided it was high time the dash wiring was replaced as it was pretty much the same age as the car!
As you can see it was a bit crispy and the ignition switch wire was badly chafed and liable to cause a short.
The dash loom came from O’Neils and the ignition switch wire is a home made item with some loom braiding for protection.
Probably the biggest pain of the whole job was having to disconnect the speedo cable as removing the dash made the whole job a lot easier.
Pro-tip don’t leave your magnetic torch on the exhaust when you road test the car (ask me how I know :))
Whilst the dash was out it was a good opportunity to lubricate the speedo and tighten the ignition switch which can work loose and also make the dash light wire a bit safer as it’s showing its age.
