boost gauge, rev counter and shift light, oil pressure  gauge, volt meter, temp gauge and electric water

pump all set up and going.

centre console started (rear done ) got the carb for free, it was off cuts a business was throwing out. score

3 plus months working as courier slowed things down ( 70 plus hours a week ) back to postie work now.

And more update

Decided to get the brake lights sorted

With the old brumby sitting in the paddock for years the bulb fittings had rusted up.

So a new setup was needed. a bit of a look at what stuff i had lying around come up with this.

1 drill out old socket

2 make hole bigger

3 wire up new fittings and add plugs

4 glue in fittings

And very surprised how well the Ryobi 18 volt soldering iron went. warmed up in seconds.

no waiting around for the plug in iron to warm up.

just need to hook earth and power to test
