Just need to get the wiring from console to the engine but I assume that would go the same route as the remote cables.
Been trolling eBay looking at the possibility of using a stater that matches my ring gear and fabricating a mounting bracket along with a universal solenoid on eBay that's about £20.
I assume your remotes are a fairly simple "deadman only" electrics? If so, I have used trailer cable in the past - You should need a minimum of 5 cores - 1)earth / common 2) +12V 3) "start" 4) choke 5) deadman. This leaves 2 spare, which could be used for a tacho signal or other.
(choke & "go" switches need to be fed from the +12, the switched side going to the solenoid(s), the -ve / earth is needed for the deadman. As they are both there, instrument power supply is also sorted, leaving the two spares for signal cables)
If your remotes are fitted with a neutral microswitch route the "go" supply cable via there to prevent you staring in gear. If not, might be worth two start buttons wired in series at opposite sides of the console just so you have to make a positive and concious decision to spin the starter!
