Mechanical, brought it through the engine bay bulkhead, where the heater pipework used to come in.

I reckon the electrical version is probably easier to fit (and is likely a little lighter over all ;)) but yes, you're right - that's a good way to plumb the gauge in :thumbsu:

What gauge did you use?

Well, I now know why I have been having problems working out the wiring diagrams, even though I have a 03 reg it has an MGF wiring loom/fusebox not a TF one :x . So, I've been trying to work out how the fog light cct works, here's a pic any ideas? I need/want to use them as rain lights but have removed the factory switch, I can't find where the RY from the switch connects to the MFU and can't work out how the whole cct works.

Ok, having had another good long look at this, I am going to take the feed from fuse 9 (UR) disconnect it from the MFU (cut) and extend it to the switch I have installed

The only acronym I understood in this was TF!
I don't think I will ever get auto electrics.

I have to admit it was much simpler when all you had to worry about were the tremblers in the trembler coil ignition system.
