I have been driving my bus all shiny for over a year now and my initial reaction every time some one looks and points is still, "shit, and I on fire?".

Feel like a rock star driving it as everyone looks and points!!
have you got dual circuit or single master cylinder. if you have dual circuit you need a dual circuit remote booster

Hi mate, first up maste, beautiful bus!! I am running my overhead gauges a bit different to you but how did you run the wiring up to the air vent area? Did you go up through the A or B pillar?

sorry for the late reply mate, I drilled a small hole in side the top of the vent and went down the front centre strut. Worked a treat :)
