Thanks for the offer but as I was rummaging though my shed full of parts this afternoon looking for something, I found a brand new one in a box that i'd competely forgotten about

For parts yes but there are things flying overhead dropping bombs master and in various places there are carpets of dropped bombs accumulating

These arrived today.
I also will be aquiring a newer dash display unit, complete wiring, sensors and a few other digidash parts from a friend in exchange for some early MG Montego Turbo parts.
Complete early headlining and sunroof surround, early electric window switches and early wiring loom. These are different to later (1987 on) cars.

Hi jeff, coming on well, seat belts in rear are black as they are dealer rather than factory fitted. Seen this before on an mg1600. Mine had factory fitted and they were red

They should be black I know but I much prefer red ones, more classy

Been experimenting with the rear belts to turn these old grey front belts to these, new front belts.
Have tested and found they work perfectly, fit ok and look great.
The front and rear belts are nearly the same so I have modified them to fit the front.

I owned one of those talking dash montego's years ago - nice to see one again. It was a light metallic green A reg (1984) MG 2L EFI. Nice car - had the digital speedo go up to 120mph once - on a private road of course lol. How many are left today i wonder? The trip computer can be way out and light bulb senors can fail easily if i remember correctly. Good project Jeff - looking forward to the finished article.

PS - does it still talk?

Wasn't talking as the radio wasn't plugged in. I now have another complete digi dash set up, wiring loom, sensors, talking unit etc courtesy of Rick just in case it was something else.
