Next job was to install 3 SPA Gauges in the lower dash just to keep an eye on the engine.

When I took out the centre tunnel and dash I fixed the heater controls that had lost the little wire that runs between the heat box and controls.
I ran the wiring from the dash to the engine bay under the tunnel.

Nice one. Have you got a new Gear Knob in your parts package from Joe? If not they might still be available from Renault for a bargain £12.

I had to remove the dash due to the left hand oil /temp gauges, was not attached in the dash the plastic had broke away and the fog light switch did not stay in when the car went over any small stone on the road.

So I repaired the dash plastic and glue it all back together and moved the switch to the spare one and altered the wiring to suit.

I had some fun at Donnington park today, the A610 did very well it just needs better brakes and suspension.

Be very careful mucking about with the 610 suspension I have been there, you will loose the good ride it has on the road in soaking up the bumps. The 610 is a GT car long distance mile muncher, it is the shockers the original ones are double acting, if you want to do tracks Gta every time.

A small up date of the running of the car, new belt installed and oil change using Millers 20/50 semi sport classic that we sell and now getting much better oil pressure cold and hot.
I have also now plumbed in the oil temp senor to spa display, when running in 30deg heat oil temp sits around 85 and when stood goes up to 90 but no higher.

Just done 800 miles to le mans and back no issues at all and 27mpg.
