I also made a gauge unit from an original Anglia radio blank, I cut it out and had double 52mm pod holes Tig welded flush into it to hold an oil pressure and amp meter, painted it the same colour as the car but need to get the original fixing brackets ? and chrome button ? that fits in the right hand side of it.

Also acquired these little beauties

Steering wheel arrived and leather is in really good nick after a clean and leather conditioner, to make it like Anita Taylor's wheel I drilled out each hole approx. 3mm larger and then removed the leather around the spokes which was only glued and not joined to the rest of the wheel. need to have a sleeve made to take the Anglia badge and get some bolts to bolt the boss together, he has drilled some extra holes in the boss for some reason and I'm pretty sure I will find out why when I come to fit it to the car.

some before and after pics
