Creative Uses for the "Fasten Belts" light...?

Recommended Posts

Has anybody out there come up with a creative use for the Fasten Seat Belts dash sign? Changed the wording? Made it a shift light? Rigged it to display your radio or ipod info?

use the hole for installation of a Triumph TR6 wrinkle finish slim metal ashtray for coins, etc?

I've often thought about this, as a period looking alternative to electrical gizmos.

a 3 gauge pod atop the dash (oil press, oil temp and volts)--a much better place for extra gauges than the console, as you don't have to look away from the road to see 'em at a glance. The base is screwed to the dash using the existing holes, and the gauge pod is velcroed (!) to the base. Been working just fine since 1988/9 or so...

That's probably what Charles Runyan from the Roadster Factory would recommend, perhaps he should add it to his lengthly email updates and catalog descriptions (the ashtray may be one part that they're not backordered on)

Interesting. My dash is already cracked around the seat belt light anyway, probably not too big a sin to put a little more of a hole in it.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
