Clocks Dash Panel Fit-Out Date: March 2, 2017Author: littlegreenlandy 4 Comments Quick and dirty post this evening….. On on…. Freshly painted dash panel, clocks, switches, warning light and sockets Cleaned up Arcoelectric push / pull switch. Even after 50 yrs, this little switch still has a satisfyingly positive “click” when switched Steel nut set how much of the switch projects through the face of the dash panel. The anodise brass nut, secures the switch on the outside of the panel and domed “handle” is the bit you interact with. You can’t buy quality like this anymore. Not well-lit…. Switches, socket and warning lights in place. The refurbished clocks are ready to fit Gauges fitted. I like that I have half a tank of fuel Speedo installed Finished product… off to the basement for safe keeping The business end….. I’m really not looking forward to the wiring. The new loom is ordered so I don’t need to build one … but… hmm… yeah, not looking forwards to wiring. Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading...
I’ve really enjoyed your build! I’m many steps behind with my 1960 Series II 88″. I also have ordered a new loom and will be watching you closely as it will be a while before I’m there.
Thanks for the message. The only practical experience I have of Land Rover electrics was on a Series 3 109. I “let the smoke out” installing new glow plugs…. it was such a mess.
I’m hoping a shiny new wiring loom not obscured by bodywork, mud and waxoyl should be fairly straightforward to install, test and commission.
Fingers crossed. Good luck with your 88″ build.
