Default dash height?

Can anyone do me a measurement from the top of the scuttle down to the top of the transmission tunnel where the dashboard sits and the widest point and the bottom of the scuttle? I haven't got my scuttle fitted to the car at the moment and wanted to get the wood while I'm at work to make my dash. Going to do it full height to the top of the transmission tunnel so I can fix it there too.

Cheers in advance

Russ

Just measured mine, & measuring at the angle of the dash as it sits against the scuttle down to the panel on top of the tranny tunnel just in front of the gearstick is
355mm

Tho mine has carpet on the panel so could knock off a couple of mm .

Hope that helps.

cheers

That's perfect Andy, I have been and got a bit of 6mm mdf 4ft x 2ft and cost me less than a fiver so will have plenty to play with

Cheers

sounds like a bargain

Just be aware that my dash panel doesn,t go all the way down to the tranny tunnel top but that measurement I gave is correct from top of scuttle to the tranny tunnel top.

In hindsight I wished I,d made my dash to meet the tunnel top too , maybe the new one will (got lots of new gauges to put in so will be making a new dash )

cheers
