Fascia fitted. The black acrylic looks very smart.
The GPS Repeater is now connected and working but the wiring on Muscadet is a worry as its really untidy + water has been dripping onto the panel! A re-wire seems likely but not this Winter.
One little tip. I wanted to avoid sticking the instrument panel/cover down with Sikaflex in case a speedy removal was necessary. I bought some very good 3.5mm thick single sided sticky rubber strip from Affixit via the net - next day delivery by Courier.

Hi
 
It will go better if you feed from below and pull from above, again tape the cable to and existing cable and use that to pull. There is a wedge somwhere and the cables take a short cut if you go from above and jam.
 
No need to cut holes, just push and pull

I recently had to feed a new cable from the cockpit display to the switchboard & had lost my mouse that I normally leave in situ. I had to be rather brave & detach an existing cable from the display - pull it back to the switchboard with a long mouse string attached & when it arrived at the switchboard pull through enough mouse line to reattach the cable & pull back with enough line behind to form a mouse for future use.
Be very careful to attach the mouse line securely & ease it along the side longitudinally till it is level with the deck winch support then pull back through the cockpit hole while easing at the swithboard end
This has to be done with the panel above the quarter berth removed so one can get a visual
