Another job ticked off the list as the seat mountings have now been adjusted on the seat rails – positioned, drilled, compression tube welded in, ground down and primed. EPAS is now ready to be chopped and have the Lifeline boss welded on, which means we have a steering position at last.

White on clear TZ tapes came through for the Brother label writer so I was able to have a play around with some of the settings tonight to do some labels for the carbon panel. Worked out okay in the end.

This is one of the projects I mentioned. I am not going to run the steering wheel stalks and I will need to be able to control the Race Technologies Dash2 so I have gone down the route of a steering wheel mounted button panel. Mocked it up in cardboard:

Gave the design some thought and tweaked it, then ordered a carbon panel, fabricated it to shape (dirty messy job) and then ordered up some parts from Simtek for the loom interface.

Quite pleased with how it turned out. The new steering wheel is an OMP Superquadro from YB Racing. I will be moving to the weld-on Lifeline quick release steering wheel boss pictured, but still need to get this welded onto the EPAS column.
