The last of the four is going to be your best buy as it's complete and has the wheel which is good for placement, price aint too greedy either.

I was thinking that one too.

Or do you think fabricating the MX5 one I have is a better idea, and part easier to get?

Are you using a Ford wiring loom? It's going to be plug and play with Ford switches.... Mazda to Ford could be more trouble than it's worth but then I hate playing with wires, choice is yours.

lol I am an electrical designer, ex auto-electrician and making the wiring harness from scratch. (I design wiring harness and electrical systems every day so no issue there)

Its more if I can get them to mechanically fit.

Ah great, should have guessed really given your delivery address
The later Sierra/Granada columns are adjustable up and down which comes in handy, I don't think the mk1/2 mx5 one is but I stand to be corrected.

Yeah the MX5 one I have isn't adjustable.

Issue seems to be with availability of parts for Sierra now. I could get the last one, then the plastics, then the switches I guess?

And that one should fit as book?
