That was a lot of panic over a normal function
I know brother - I'd be the same myself tbh.
Haha I didn't know, I have learnt something new today though so that's good
Things to test us
Do you have a link to the LED's you used?
Just updating my Jobs to do:
Extend the loom for the ignition amplifier
Run the battery cable and identify the place to secure the junction box and Battery
Install the engine for final loom position testing
Power it all up and check for wiring errors
braid the wires to protect them where possible
make new routing for wires
Wire up VDO guages
Install the dashboard
Secure all the cables in place
Fill with fluids (oil, coolant)
Run the engine, inspect and check for codes
Re-install the remaining interior
Re-install the remaining engine bay components
Buy and install a new front window - National Windscreens do this for £125 fitted if using the existing seal
install dash loom
Make a new loom for the guages so that the lights come on when sidelights are turned on but the guages power up from ignition live. They are all on Ignition live at the moment
set up VCDS for logging
install n/s driveshaft
Install o/s driveshaft
Remove / key the current inner arch Shultz and apply new black layer
Make new loom for Horn in the O/S wing
Connect Stereo Wires just incase
Install center consol
Install Elecric window Loom and make a live trigger for the relay
Check all brake connections, fill with fluid and bleed
I have used these in the instrument cluster and the guages.
i'll split some of the switches apart at some point and put LEDs in them
here we go then

IF Emma Watson was looking at this dash, I reckon she'd say..
i bet shes got a fanny like the bonnet of an old beetle
Dash looks awesome!
See if Steve's windscreens serve your area, really good for price and service, or possibly Phoenix, was a while since used them.
i'll look him up. I need to check to see if mine wa stinted or not... i think its just clear
Buy a heritage screen and fit it yourself? They’re super easy to fit.
new stereo loom made up while on my usual Friday Afternoon calls

well the wiring is all complete now.
Speaker cables all in
Electric window loom in and on a 53 relay so its on a ignition live trigger to D/09 which is the electic window relay trigger
I have 2 litres of Raptor coming today so tonight i'll really begin stripping and prepping the inner front aches ready to paint that on. Going to use a coarse roller for appplication and then Schutz over the area when it dries. those front arches will be good for a long time yet.
Once thats done, its all pretty basic stuff like put the rest of the inner trim in and do a final check over every pipe clip and bolt that has been changed.
Its insured so will need to be MOT'd and then i can enjoy it before ripping some more of it apart next winter haha
Looking good mate this thread will come in handy when I do get to the wiring
I hope it does come in useful.
i'm going to start to document the BAM / ME7.5 wiring as i will want to change to that power unit and move away from me3.8 in time.
With this, Vinnies, Phil, DavKav, Sam and his Dad, just to name 6, there's a real resurrection of Mk2s!
