Gauge is a unit from Speedhut. I've used them for all the gauges in my 280Z and a gauge here and there for some other projects. The speedo signal is GPS and I had to order a new cable end so I can shorten the antenna cable. Unfortunately not going to finish wiring this weekend, As mentioned I still need to heat shrink all the ferules, shorten the GPS antenna, and my headlight bucket still looks like it's throwing up wires.

One of my favorite garage beverages to end the day.

Didn't have a lot of time to work on the bike this weekend, but managed to:
Tidy up wiring in headlight bucket and install headlight. It's a 6.5" unit equipped with an LED H4 bulb.
Remount front wheel.
Fill and bleed front brakes.

Not much progress this weekend and one decent set back.

No bike is complete without a steering damper, so got that installed.

Got left foot controls situated.

The set back was when I discovered the positive terminal on my battery was loose. Thought I had been too cautious when tightening and it had loosened, but nooooo the terminal itself is loose on the battery. I'm sure Antigravity Batteries will not believe I did not damage it by over tightening, but I swear there is no chance that I over tightened it. Emailed them to see if I could make a warranty claim, but not holding my breath.
