Fitting reports for various items

170 bhp rebuild It started with head gasket failure (at 91k miles) and ended up with a full engine rebuild! Full report in progress...
SELOC thread
Oil temperature gauge My solution for an oil temperature gauge, toggling the Stack temperature display between oil and water using the fog lamp switch (with minimal wiring).
Fitting guide
Dash mounted power outlet I've always wanted to do something useful with the spare "5th switch" on the dash. Having seen a few cars fitted with a cigarette lighter in that position I decided that I needed the same solution. The standard cigarette lighter is in an awkward place for just about any purpose but the dash is perfect for easy access when using a portable tyre inflator or for powering a sat-nav system.

So I figured out how to do it for myself and wrote a fitting guide.
