Hey guys,

i filled the tank up yesterday so i can start tracking how much fuel it uses, also after driving it around a lil bit ive got a list of thigs to do asap:
remove the side window tint (way too dark, cant see at night :S)
get convex blindspot mirrors (most likely on smaller lenses for better Cd at the same time)
get a taller diff (currently 1st gear is useless and 4th is revving quite high at motorway speeds, havnt got tacho hooked up to know exactly though)

also heres the last couple of dasy progress on the dash, it obviously still needs a lot of finishing work but its coming along nicely

radio and volt guages in (the rest of the space on this panel will be switches for lights, wipers etc)

guage cluster mocked up:

and the rest of the facia test fitted:

Still need a few little tweaks and a lot of finishing work... the spare 3 holes in the gauge cluster will be for water temp, oil press and vacuum, and the blank panel on the right will house some speakers

thanks for looking
