Raptor Dash Fitting in my 1998 TD5 Landrover Defender

The original blog post from 2011 was lost in a database crash and so this post has been reconstructed from memory and may not be exactly the same as the first version!

The radio and console switches removed.

What is the digital read out to the top left of the dash and the display underneath it? Is one of them battery monitoring? It looks like a tidy solution if that’s the case. I’d be interested to know what they’re called and where you got them from! Many thanks. Josh

Josh, the display was a reversing camera.
