Started on the dash install today.

Here it is sitting in place with the angle around the 17⁰ mark as a rough starting point; will probably have to make it closer to 20⁰.




The ‘challenge’ is allowing enough rear clearance for the speedo (the larger round opening) and also the water temp gauge (capilliary type) in the second row.
Oh, and the glovebox…..I’ll just have to wait and see what I can achieve there. Yes, the round tubular cross tube is very much a structural member, so no mods permitted there.


Because the glovebox opening and also the lower edge have been welded, there is some distortion, so I’ve added a length of timber as a temporary straightener. That will stay there until I’m happy with the rigidity of the installed dash panel.




Cheers!
Glen
