Gear stick, ancillary harness, serial plate


The gear stick is from the Puma donor, which is too long so off came about 50mm and added the racing Puma knob purchased s/h off where else:- ebay

The wiring harness is divided into two like the Puma: The Battery junction box and ECU and the lighting and ancillary harness or Offside fuse box in this case. I created a harness jig based on the accurate measurement of the chassis. This allows me to move the chassis around and still work on the wiring.

After reading the Locost forum on such matters, I came to the conclusion at least two locations for the VIN are required. One that cannot be removed and one on the nearside chassis member that is more obvious to the inspector. The chassis number cannot be punched into the chassis without cutting a bit out first. I plan to weld a plate in instead. The bulkhed is the only other place that has enough strength to have a naked punched serial number.
