I like it, if i were building a modern/track style mini i would use that, looks like a race dash. as long as its not too big it will look fine

I like it too, I thought about doing something similar, as you know I bout the OBD port and a Bluetooth adapter for my Emerald already too.
I was going to devise a way of having a small tablet tucked under the dash that will fold out when I want it so I donít spoil the sleeper look.

Great idea. Only potential downsides are if the app or screen fail or you get bad glare from reflected sunlight you would be driving blind. I have toyed with similar idea for mine when it finally turns a wheel

Another engine issue!

The 2nd set of rods have larger bolts that now cause this! Not keen on doing this but looks like I have got to try shave some material from the crank ladder. Somebody else has shaved the bolt head but not keen on that method.

Co17 cable, 40 amp relay with a 40 amp maxi fuse direct from the battery should stop my fuel pump wire melting!

Its just a Bosch 044 and believe it draws 20 amps but many people have had issues with voltage drop so thought this can't do any harm
