Can you move it from reight to left and converse? It looks very different from the right side and from the left side. And it looks symetrical, which would be wrong Nige. Please shet some light to this topic :-)

The profile left to right is identical. The drop down piece at the bottom is off centre to the drivers side as they would have been originally. The dash itself isnt as deep as an original as I've made it so i can get my legs in 😂.

A quick update on the dash. My friend Owain has been sorting out some wiring issues on the car, and the dash is now fully wired ready to fit. Can't wait to get this fitted as it'll look soooo much better than the original one that was in there.

Very nice,
Bare Ali is more in keeping with the modsports theme although I’m not sure about the glove box. Assume you will just leave the lid off.
Nearly ready to fire up and get ready for Cranleigh?

Nige,

Looks really good but you need the right gear knob

and the right grab handle
