Default Just finished my dash - quite pleased!

Gents

I've just finished my dash, and I'm quite happy with how it turned out, thought I'd share a piccie. It's a blatant copy of Zetec's dash from locostbuilders, with a bit added on, but I think it'll suit the car well.

Cheers

Adrian

That looks superb..Where did the instrumentation and lights come from ? did you need any extra sensors to run them ?

Andy

The instruments are VDO ones, they come with all the senders, the lights came from Car Builder Solutions. If you like the gauges, it's worth keeping an eye on the Westfield Club (WSCC) website, as they come up for sale on their forum from time to time. Mine were 150 from someone on there, with all senders, and had never been used, still in their boxes.

Glad you like the dash.

Cheers

That's great. I planned to do something similar after seeing the other one. Going to give us an idea how you did it? I thought I would do the two colours wrapped in thin ply and then fastened to a thicker solid bit of ply.
