Has it still got the leatherette covered marine ply dash

Yes still has the leatherette covered ply dash. Speedo above the steering , rotary light switch then wipers. Then none functioning spray switch and one red push button and a black toggle that do nothing. Iíll have to trace the wires

General thoughts or ideas, I came across this on a Baja build for class 11 Baja racing. Has anyone tried something similar on a buggy. Roll bar tube welded to rear torsion bar and bolted to front beam. Just wondered what the pros and cons of this sort of set up would be on a buggy?
Thought it might be interesting for discussion?

May be a stronger way to mount a roll cage for racing, instead of Ďspreaderí plates bolted or welded to the floor pan?

So it has had changes done I fibreglassed tube under the tub lip for the wiring, thinking Chris supplied a empi loom kit for it which does not have enough wires to be safe in use for the lights. There was no domestic wiring used and the headlamp relay and flasher can were the only relays.
Has it still got the leatherette covered marine ply dash fitted.
Will have to have a look at the original build thread but it was a quick 2 week turnaround £200 assembly just to get it on the road helping him out with all the parts he supplied.
Looks like it has had loads done I wired it down the drivers side to an absolute minimum for safety and function the build is on page 2 of members buggies under super gimmers challenge.

There lies the rub snoopy. Still battling to get hold of the chaps as the v5 never came with the documents. No way did this pass mot. Window washer not working and no horn at the moment. Not even serviced looking at the colour of the oil. Wiring wise Iíll start with the fuses, seems to be two boxes in the passenger footwell with a fair few relays randomly wired in. Also std household cable running to the back, that splices off to the number plate leds that also donít work! Didnít expect to work on it so soon, would have been nice to run it through summer to get the feel for it and decide it I was keeping it

Small Mixture screw out makes it richer the large air bleed screw controls the idle speed so out speeds the idle up by allowing more air in.
Thought it came with an mot so all working for the test at a guess check the fuses it was different colours for different circuits all clipped up Chris had a list of what was what at the time, ignition lives were probably white and battery lives red but no idea what has happened over the years and during the refurb.

Most will have already seen that the carnival is cancelled; I'm speaking to the football club tomorrow to see if we can still use the site for those that still want to do a seaside get together.

Wait Out.

Tweak on the mixture (half turn out) and raise the idle slightly ( quarter turn) seems to have improved things. Then I looked at the wires to work out why the screen washer and horn arenít working.....holy spaghetti Batman!
