    A while back I dug up some info on AUX input options. Tape adapter, FM modulator, all garbage. Eventually found a diagram by Jeff Anderson which takes advantage of the 13-pin CD plug in the back of the Type 1 radio. Posted a DIY thread here. I wired this up with a cheap toggle switch a few months ago, and it worked but some contacts weren't being made in the switch itself, so I decided it was time to step up the quality a little.

    I also tried my hand at wiring window switches. First attempt was trash, second attempt was better, third attempt was satisfactory.

    Of course these toggles need to be mounted somewhere. I was initially going to mount them onto a tombstone end-cap, but scratched those plans - stay tuned.

    I love my cubby, but that was the only remaining option. Made some templates and cut out an aluminum and ABS panel. Aluminum panel will bolt onto the tombstone, and the 1/4" ABS sheet will sit on top to come close to flush with the tombstone.

    Both plates are rough cutouts. I've drawn both in AutoCAD and will have a second set cut on a waterjet later this week.






    Test fit:

    The tombstone wasn't left without attention either. Speaking of M2-1028...

    Received a couple of packages last week. The first one is from MiataQuest. Jet Stream turn signal intake bulbs/lenses and two OEM oil filters - for the price of shipping. Blown away, MiataQuest is the man.




    The second was a long-overdue shifter rebuild kit, the only thing keeping me from installing the carpet console.
