Nah, that's fine Tony - ask away.
The TC was one of my earlier mods, and there wasn't anywhere really feasible in the upper dash to fit it. I might review that in future - I'm doing a bit of a revamp currently.

Digging the woodgrain, and yes snap that looks like the business right there

Since this thread has gone quiet (may be a case of "nice woodgrain jealousy") may I interest you in an EF steering wheel, airbag and clockspring? I'm just dying to see a screen and some buttons on a steering wheel... Datamine has already convinced me I'm an idiot, and my current lack of stereo head unit would atest similar (yeah, I fried it by leaving live bare wires lying around the console and pushing the stereo in with the music playing, yeah yeah yeah...)

Of course, you may need to forget the airbags, or you'll end up something like ...

I've been working on some audio controls that will fit on the lower portion of the airbag wheel. They work - all I need to do is finish the bracketing.
