Dashboard Modifications

The steering lock mechanism has been removed to adhere to MSA regulations.
The lock mechanism required the steering wheel, instrumentation, ignition switch and heater vent to be removed to gain access, before we cut the locking pin off with a dremel tool and re-fitted. This looks quite a but more complex that it was and was good practice since the whole dashboard will need to come out when the roll-cage is fitted.
 
On the passenger side the airbag behind the dashboard panel was also removed and the panel re-fitted.
The Porsche PCM Radio & Sat Nav unit has also been remved and will be sold.  The area is blanked with a carbon fibre sheet and will have the interior saftey cut-off and fire switches mounted to it as well as re-instating a button for the horn. The lower fan control unit is being retained.
