Hi Greg,

I've got the quick rack in mine with the corsa column, the important thing is to order the LHD version, as it's an upside down LHD rack on our cars, Rally Design can supply this.

I'd suggest you go with the corsa stalks rather than the rover ones, I did manage to engineer some Rover ones to fit, however they're too far back on the column to be nice to use, you'll notice that the Vauxhall stalks are cranked, this greatly improves things.
If you use stalks from a Corsa B then they're non-can bus so easier to make work, you will need to put a separate headlight switch somewhere though, a VW one is a nice easy mod to the dash if you haven't already trimmed it.

As for the ignition switch, it's possible to do it with relays, you don't need as high as 70A there isn't that much current draw on the Rover switch, I've got a diagram in some of my harness notes that shows what you need to do, I'll try and get a pic of it and post it up for you.

Ed.
