Put a clock in it
The TR6 has a rheostat in the centre of the dashboard that adjusts the instrument lights from dim to off. A year ago I bypassed the pointless article and changed the bulbs to LEDs. I can now see how fast I’m going in the dark.
All well and good but I now have a redundant knob (stop laughing at the back).
The answer is a clock.
Step 1 – Remove dash
Step 2 – Get a hole cut
Step 3 – New bezels and rubbers
Step 4 – Install in dash
Step 5 – Fix all the knackered connections
I had a collection of scotchloks, chocolate blocks and insulating tape behind the dash. Fixed everything and replaced the iffy connectors where applicable.
Step 6 – Add to car and test
