Back to finish off the cabin.
The dash is simple but effective. MFH provide nice clear resin half rounds for the warning lights and dial covers.
though you'll never see it because the cowling is pretty deep
this is it buried at the back
and the rest of the dash. I added some labels that the engineers stuck on the switches to remind the drivers where to turn on the lights and wipers etc. Notice the key. Since these were "road" cars they had to start with a key.
Then within the cabin, the final touches. A pair coils and a battery box. The leads for the coils go in once the bulkhead is fitted behind the driver. That is part of the front shell, so still to come. I added some cables for the battery box. I sort of guessed where they may go.
None of this really visible once the seats go in.
And the gear shift is nicely done. They had wooden knobs to save weight.
And finally the seats. Only the driver merited belts since there were no passengers but a second seat was required as part of the rules, like the spare wheel. The belts are just resting there as they too need to be attached to the bulkhead once it goes in.
Think about it. That 5 litre flat 12 is about 6 inches from your ears, running at 7000 rpm down the Mulsanne straight. Must've been loud!
Anyway that is it for the interior and mechanicals. Enjoy because there is not much visible once the body work is on. And that's the final area to complete, plus some wheels.
