MG TD TF 1500 - 27991 instrument placement

First time the instruments have ever been in the same place at the same time: We’re putting the four gauges in the middle panel. All switches except choke will be toggles on the lower panel - even the starter as we’ll change the solenoid so its no longer a pull-start. Ignition key/light switch will be on outboard side of the dash with four idiot lights on right side: ignition, driving lights, low fuel, signal lights. The chrome panel will be refinished in crinkle black. Toggles will all match in the end - small steps, we're getting there...

Still not sure how we'll stack the idiot lights - maybe the green ignition light right above the key, with the other three in a triangle between tach and speedo, or maybe ignition and low fuel above the key. Hmmmm.

Don't forget to hold the steering wheel in its approx (or exact) position before you nail down the locations of things... with my Nardi, I couldn't see the oil pressure needle...a pita... The Brooklands is an inch and a half larger and makes everything visible...!!!
