Default Completion of REGI

Just a little thread about the completion of my MK1 Rs2000 which I picked up last Sunday. Not really a lot been done so far. A little wiring, some new switches, Badges & Steering wheel. Mainly been buying the few parts athat are needed to finish.

So far............

New badges fitted


The mystery of the non-working Rev Counter........



Sorted rev counter.......



Renovated Dash top, Switch panel, Switches, Steering column surrounds & Brand New Genuine Springalex Wheel






More to follow when I can be bothered LOL

You've got some of them switches in the wrong place!

The two on the left need swapping places... You'll lose points otherwise

Is it possible to send a picture about the rev counter. The kind of cables who are going to and from the rev counter. Because I just can't find the problem on my rev counter.
Kind regards
Pieter

Default Wood pack

Nice to see you have the correct RS2000 wood pack, switch panel.
1300E and Mexico had a whole for the choke cable. As the RS2000 had a manual choke, then no hole. (rare)
Not many with no wood fitted. Kev C's has none fitted as still original spec from bill of sale, optional head rests and alloy wheels only.

Alot of people think that RS2000s were fully loaded from New. originally had the high back seats only. Head rests were optional, custom pack with wood and centre console were optional. Also alloy wheels were extra so came with 5 1/2 J steels as standard.
Like Mexico's The big stipes were standard with a delete option.

Another one with the switches in the wrong place!

Love the wheel and the 5 speed box though, very calming on long journeys.
