New Dash Blank Canvas

I am starting with a blank canvas dash so to speak on my 110 build. I plan on doing MudUK center dash, but will also have real estate in a TF overhead console (DIN) and a Tuffy center console (DIN).

Does anyone have anything they wish they would have thought of, or wish they would have done, or any new interesting dash doodads or products that I should consider?

Gauges will consist of: Oil Pres, Temp, Fuel, Voltage, On Board Air Pressure, EGT, Boost, tach, and speedo, of course.

I'm counting the potential for 12 Carling switches: Compressor, R locker, F Locker, Interior light, Front external lights (1), front external lights (2), Rear light, Seat heat (L), Seat heat (R), windscreen heater, power window (L), power window (R).

Other doodads: Cig lighter, USB charger

Electronics: Basic, non-flair stereo, and a CB.

why not some sort of double din screen/stereo for mapping and sounds. Then fit a sub and happy days.

Recommend the blue sea USB and 12v outlets. For switches including custom graphics:

Jonathon - A couple I have: (Carling of course)

1. wire up a cut off switch for your fan, three way, off-on-auto
2. Map lights - controls the Hella map light
3. Courtesy lights - small blue LED's placed in footwells and rear

X2. Having multiple USB ports, front and rear is highly recommended.
