From some of my older images, thought I would post this one up on my blog - pretty typical Grp. 2 gauge cluster. Everything is in pretty good shape, although I am going to have to send the Smiths tacho out for some "freshening" mind you that is very low on the old totem pole at the moment. Obviously the tacho was right in the center of the cluster and then the three next most important on either side, oil pressure, oil temp and water/coolant temp. Not sure what happened to the yellow bezel for the coolant temp, one of those little things that someone changed or did away with for some reason. Have a great weekend.

Not sure who made the wheels (steering) for them, I like the look of it as well, sort of funny looking with the padded center in an all out race car. That steering wheel didn't make it either in my car, changed by someone - has the standard ALPINA 4 spoke MOMO (minus the pad). The interior of the car really demonstrates the fit and finish that ALPINA always has had (Still has). At that point in time interior door panels were still required as well as a passenger seat (and actually a spare tire as well which was stowed behind the passenger seat, dashboard etc., later on grp doors were homologated as well as grp dashboards and center consoles, elimination of the passenger seat and spare tire and many, many other things. The cars constantly evolved based on various parts being homologated so it makes it very hard to pick a point in time and say this was absolutely correct. Where I have the car now is at its earlier part in development (1974).

I have a diagram somewhere, I believe that one is the electrical cut off/power. The button above that is the starter - the rest I don't recall although several of them are for the fuel pumps. The configuration it is now is slightly changed from this image. This was a really early picture taken of the inside of the car at its unveiling (press photo).

CD, good call that is probably it - bizarre as it is - that is to have a warning light that your blinker is on (in a full Grp. 2 race car). That said in the black and white photo you can see that they still have the lever for the turn signal in place and all the cars did have working signals and brake lights/headlights etc., they even homologated a special "parking brake" which again was required (to a certain point). Will post that up at some point in the future.
