MGF Indicator Gauges
Gauge Brackets
As a-ha once said, I hunted high and low for these engine indicator gauges, all 10ma FSD gauges apart from the oil pressure gauge. Electronic problems driving the pressure gauge will probably mean this particular gauge will not be used and I will have to use an unmatched weston gauge.

I modified the back end of the MGF's center console and fixed the aluminium gauge panel to it using super strong polyurethane glue.

The red cover panel is a piece of powder coated aluminium which serves to cover the gauge retaining screws.

For the indicators that will display the status of the speed controller I have opted to use LED Bar lights mounted on to a piece of epoxy strip board. This unit will then be placed behind a legend displaying the status messages.

These are the pictures of the the legend that I have made using my vinyl cutter and held up against different colour's on my computer screen background. The vinyl was cut in negative and then stuck to the back of a piece of smoked perspex sheet, thus you should only be able to see the text if the back light is illuminated. The abbreviations are as follows, from top left:

Max Volts, Max Current, Max Battery Drain, Max Generator Power, Battery Float, Max Battery Charge, Low Battery, Motor Over speed Trip and Low Brake Vacuum.

The final legend assembly with a Bicc style connector on the one end, the connector will be useful should the unit need to be removed for servicing outside of the car, in fact we have tried to build the whole car from various easy to remove modules.

AC-DC voltage converter, this units outputs 14 and 18 volts and is used to charge the car battery and the engine starter motor and ecu. The heat sink on the right houses a couple of power diodes which help stop the battery's discharging through the converter when not in use.

Finished back 'under' shelf electronics.

A new back shelf has now been made from 2mm Aluminium with 8mm edging trim which will help stop any rattling, on top of this the will be a sheet of 10mm sound proof closed cell foam and then the original carpet to finish.
A Perspex panel has now been made to cover the top of the speed controller also a hole has been made in the aluminium back shelf and carpet so that the controller can be viewed.
