Yes, that is the piece of kit that I was looking for, but I think it's very hard to get precise the one with the right lenght and endings. In my garage I found a pair of tray guides (I think I know what your thinking, but yes I am a bit cocky ;D) see if I can use those...

scrol down to bottom of page and look on left side in SHOP CATAGORIES they do all fittings and make cables to whatever lenght you like. As for the draw runners the little bearings will fall out in no time

Yes Ron you are right! I should have taken a closer look ( :o ) In this case I think it is hard to order the right cable with my exact required specifications  :$. I will ask some local companies, see what they come up with.
I welded the gear lever in place, but am not really pleased with the result  :cry:. I let it rest for now...


This weekend some more wire fiddling!! Tried to locate all (!!) the airbag sensors, squib(connectors) and whatnots and ditched them! This really cleaned up! Still a long way to go

Thanks!! I do my best not to disapoint you!! :D

My friend Gideon dismanteled the center dash binnacle. Together with the actual ECU this is part of the Aygo nerve center!! I want to keep the Fiat dash looking as original as possible, but try to incorporate as much as Toyota tech as possible  ;D. By splitting the binnacle and extending (a hell of a lot of  :headscratch:) wires, we hope to place the the speed indicator in the original Fiat binnacle, which is a lot smaller! ( :$ wish me luck...)

 :secret: Still working on the wiring! Like I said earlier, I want to incorporate the Toyota centre dash in to the Fiat's. My girlfriend (she's a great grafic designer! :thumbup: ) started working on designing a new dail for the binnacle, more to come soon!!

And I want to replace the Fiat switches for the Toyota's because the switches, contol lights and relays are integrated in the wiring loom.

This is what it will look like (I know the interior :shy: doesn't look very tidy yet)

What you are endeavouring to do, is quite amazing. Keep up the good work!!! Try to document all that you are doing, accompanied by photos as well.

Brilliant idea! Much braver than me for trying it!

Once it is finished you will have to bring it over to the UK to show it off!!
