The one other thing I really need and want is a comfortable seat and a nice looking interior/dash.
The standard speedster seats are not comfortable. In the Mid-engine Coupe there is very limited amount of room so Carey suggested using the seats from the 904 which are nicer and more comfortable. But now that we are going with a rear engine mount I was thinking that maybe we can use an early 911 sport seats that is a little bigger and more comfortable but will not look too modern and out of place. Maybe with gromets as well. I
I also picked out a set of traditional black faced with white numbers and red tipped indicators and polished bezel gauges from Speedhut. For the main dash I picked 3 4" gauges. Center Tach, 180 MPH Speedo on the Left, and a Quad gauge with fuel/volts/water temp and oil pressure (that how they make it). Then in the center dash I am going to mount the A/C controls on top centered, and below that two gauges 2 5/8" a clock and oil temp gauge and the radio below.
The other option was to use just the Tach and Speedo left and right of the steering wheel and instead of the quad gauge go with all individual gauges. Maybe mount the fuel gauge in between the Speedo and Tach and in the center a row of 3 2 1/16" gauges of water temp/oil temp/oil pressure and below the radio in a separate center stack (like what they had in the 914) have the volts/clock and amps.
