Took advantage of the sun today and made up the seat brackets. I used some 25x25x3 angle and welded the nuts to the bottom so I dont need to get underneath to fit or remove the seats.





The seats look great. and fit perfectly, even with the flared back section of the transmission tunnel.

I wouldn't recommend them for drivers taller than say 5'9". I'm 5'6" and the seat position for me is only 2 clicks forward from full back. Im gonna need a smaller steering wheel too!

I also dusted off the CNC machine and cut out a dash surround from some MDF for the mx5 dials to sit in.




A few Youtube seconds of the CNC machine cutting it.

It will be cut with rounded corners and a taper to the trans tunnel then covered in a red pleather.

Can anyone spot the deliberate mistake here?



Wear goggles whenever grinding!

Ha. CNC-ing them I could only do one for myself, I imagine the machine time for that would be 2 hours on my little rig but I work in a merchandising company so ill look into having a group buy on an enameled version. Only problem is I recon the minimum would be something like 100.

I went to A&E the night before I posted the pic and the doctor said he would "dig it out with a needle" which he did, but not before accidentally pricking my nose with said needle... I still let him do it.

It is a lot better now but was horrible for a couple of days.

I think I would need to get 50 badges at around a tenner each to be able to place an order.

Back to the dash again...

I made a 3rd incarnation of my dials to try and get a better colour in them and also wanted better light distribution so on ebay I got..



..a 5m length of 12V warm white LED strip and cost just 10 delivered. Bargain.

I planned to stick it around the inside of the dash like this as it has adhesive back. Nothing will stick to that white plastic the dash is made of so I ended up drilling holes around the outside and it will be held in by thin white zipties.



The light and colour is bang on now. I will be machining some individual dial surrounds that will block out all the excess light you can see around, as the electrical tape is doing here on the speedo and tacho.



Cheers
Stot
