More harness work getting all the connectors on the wire ends. The car is using later model column switches for the start, wipers, horn signal and hi/lo beam .  Dash switches will be for the headlamps and park lamps, and the 4 way flashers.

Trial fit in the car with the dash.. I am keeping the fuses inside the car to keep the engine firewall cleaner looking.

Starting to sort out the engine side of the harness.  All the switches and lights have been tested and seem to work OK.. 4 ways not working as waiting on a switch to come from the UK

Got the seats mounted today, and the lap belt portion of the seat belts.. next is to locate the rear seat belt strap and figure out how to anchor them.  The seats are early Miata seats, which I have slightly raised the front mounts to give a better sitting angle. They have a very large range for front and back movement, so good to adjust for different sized drivers.

Mike, can I ask that you expand on how you raised the front of the seat subframes?
This is something I think I'll need to do (eventually) for a more comfortable seating position.
Car's coming along nicely by the way.
Cheers,

Graham, I used some 3/4 inch X 3 inch rectangular tube, cut a section the width of the Miata front mount, one for each side. I then drilled through, small hole on bottom for bolt, larger hole on top so the lip on the underside of the Miata mounting tab fit into the top hole. Then it was all bolted through with longer bolts.  I'll grab a picture when I remove them for painting..  Mike
