Not sure putting them to use is easy but will make a plan to install.
Big money or do I dare not ask?

Not cheap however fare.......
Getting these calipers are a rare day so I "seized the day" if you will.
I look at it as investment as if I don't use them I know someone could and that is a good thing.

BG Development makes calipers today that I'm off and on about. I still don't know their cost and they never answered my emails about a price list. Yours look great and if you don't use them, you know who to give first right of refusal to!

Jeff, just wondering....why no radii on the dropped centre of the dash panel? I don't recall having seen one like that.....

Cheers,
Glen

It's the dash that came with the car. It's not perfect but it will work.
It's alloy so hammer and time will make a difference.

Took advantage of the weather.
Centered dash and installed glovebox door. Will add the final holes then cover.
Also primed, painted and prepped boot and hood frame.

Jeff - have you posted a 'how to' for making a correct glovebox door anywhere previously? Yours looks good

Cheers,
Glen

Very nice magnesium wheels by the way.
Even now, there must be so much NOS and other good stuff out there just waiting for someone to stumble across.

Glen

Wished I had made it however I cant make claim to doing the door. The door was made by my friend David Wagner using the dimensions and lockset I provided to him.

Glovebox door are made up of these parts:
a) Leather, would need to source high quality to match dash
b) Plywood base used for door itself
c) Light foam behind leather
d) Lockset
e) Backing plate
f) Edge trim
g) Small piano hinge
h) Hardware

David Wagner is a top builder and he is a real master....... Also a fantastic person.
I am simply an attentive student

Jeff,

Would you mind posting a picture of how the sides and back of the glove box door are finished out?
