    Default Adding a 12V socket and UBS ports to a Series 2

    Hello all - I have a 1960 Series 2 SWB LHD and find it is about time to add a 12V socket and 1 or 2 USB ports. Any suggestions/best practices on where to put them, parts (e.g., 3A vs 10A socket) and wiring?

    I put in a cigarette lighter type outlet and wired in to the inspection light wires (which is now disconnected as it was shorting out). I plug in a USB adapter when needed. Just bolted thru an existing hole in dash.Name:  28F98773-5E5E-4AE5-842D-66CDF9844A98.jpg

    Thanks for the eBay link AP22. I had also seen that and wondered if I should opt for a 10A socket instead of 3A?
