Guys i need to know the routing of the wiring for the main beam switch, is this the right way...the wiring coming through that hole in the inner panel, it occurred to me that the wiring would be showing, as the kick panels dont go down to the floor?? There is another hole further along where the panel joins the floor so it may be this one.... I took this out in 2002 and a lot of Jack Daniels has passed my lips since then.....my memory is not what it was :oops:

Si, the dip-switch (and horn) wires come through the hole in the vertical panel
the horn wire continues on through the floor hole

looks like your vertical hole is slightly mispositioned, & the ribbing on that inner panel doesnt continue on?
dont forget those grommets;)

Looks like my front inner panel is different to yours Chris. Its not a later bus one but, hard to think they changed the panel after yours for about a month :? On my picture just to the left of where i have the wires is another hole, i think the wires and the speedo cable could go through this, it would be a bit more tidy so i will probably do that.

Clara's 53 Std.....same as your Chris, the switch that was in mine is a later style too, still screw terminal. I have a pic of Everett's old 55 kombi it has the same panel as mine.

Simon,
I know i still have your speedo & am restoring the dial as best i can then you will be able to sell it on to someone who doesn't have a show condition bus.
Your bus looks great & good thread.
Regards.
