    Scangauge II into Ashtray

    Hi Guys

    Just got Scangauge II earlier this week from Lee69 (fantastic service and great piece of kit!!) I wasnt sure post this in electrical or interior so feel free to move it if wish to.

    I am wanting to fit it in my ashtray, as no peering p*keys or theifs can see what kit I got in my car . Anyway wondering if you guys give hand or suggestions on how to fit into ashtray (or how-to). Seen member on here mattcoupeturbo fitted in there and looks fantastic, hence why I am doing it.

    I have located the port for it, under handbrake, but how would i wire it round to my ash tray, and shut the cover on port when plugged in?? At the moment i cant shut it as when plugged its in the way.

    Secondly How would it fit in the ashtray, currently it is slightly too big. just sand down the sides of the scangauge, and slot it in? Assume drill hole in the middle for the cable to plug in the back aswell?

    Any help with this would be appreciated!

    Thanks
