Default Interior Panel and Link Keypad

I'm looking for the panel that goes to the right of the steering column cover. I don't have a picture, but it is the one that contains the power mirror switch and has the cigarette lighter in it. Mine is broken where the steering column cover screws in. Need it in black and in as perfect shape as possible!

Also need a Link Keypad. I know it's a long shot, but maybe someone has one lying around.

PM me or respond here with prices, and include shipping to 30268 in your cost please.

Thanks!

Awesome! Sounds like a winner to me, and you can finally see my Miata Turbo! I'll work out a time with you when I head up that way to get some A/C parts and more interior panels from another seller. Thanks man!

don't bother with the keypad - buy a palm m500 and serial cable on ebay for <$30 delivered, the serial link for <$100, miscellaneous port parts and cable, then download plink and you're set for datalogging-map swapping-realtime multiple data readout-etc.

OK, browsed the site, seems I can tune for different level boost settings, which is one area I've wanted to focus on for quite a while, so that looks good.
But the other thing that I want to do is wire in my AEM UEGO to the Link, but that requires changing some settings using the keypad. I don't think that can be accomplished using the PLink though. Do you know?

Yes. I've got the LC1 wired in to my link. You can do everything in Plink the keypad can do. The difference being that the keypad is heavily supported by FM and Plink has relatively no support other than it's installed user base. I was using the keypad, and Plink is more complicated, but only because it has exponentially greater features. In comparison to actually link's operation, Plink is simple.

OK, I'll try that route out and see how it goes.
So I'll get a Palm M500. I already have a SerialLink with USB adapter (guess I won't be needing the USB since that's for laptop use). And I'll download PLink. What else do I need to make this work, since you mentioned misc. parts?

ADDITION TO MY LIST:
Looking for a non-powered FM antenna mast.

You need to do some work on the serial link to add a port for the palm:

I don't think you'll regret it. It's nice to have a tool that'll give you real time feed back when you change something, or something changes. The monitor screen can actually do a grab on peak data- ie: map, knock noise etc. Definitely the ability to swap maps and datalog w/o a laptop are BIG bonuses.
