Tricabin instrument upgrade

Post by horhay1946 » Sat Apr 21, 2018 3:51 pm

After owing Trivia Pursuit for about 3 years I got tired of looking at the instrument panel with come gauges not working. I decided to upgrade the panel, gauges and switches. I found some rocker switches that were illuminated and were marked. The same place that sold the switches also cut the panels. Unfortunately I had to go with a two piece panel but it worked out. I also rewired everything from the 4 terminal stripes to the gauges and switches. I still have a couple of items to get connected. but that will come in the near future. The weather is getting about right and my seasonal job is almost over.

Still building should be done by the end of the decade but which one I am not sure about. Hope you can get down her next winter and I should have all my other projects done by then
