lol... I just realised it read like I took the dash out to investigate the gauge... which I wish in some ways were true.. in this case I just wan't happy with a. how loose everything was and b. the finish of the wood was not great.

I had thought however the dash would come out a lot easier than it did... but once I was in it.. I was in it...

Oh well.

Well, i havn’t had a lot of time to work on the stylus but i am keen to have her available for the summer so decided to finally tackle getting the dash out and replaced / renewed.

So now i am faced with this birds best....

TBH i was a bit disappointed in how this cars interior has been put together, or probably more than likely taken apart and put back together over the years...

I’m going to have the dash panel remade, utilising classic mini glove box moulding and door mechanism. I’m also probably update the various dash Lights will LED units.

The biggest challenge i have now is working out a more robust mechanism of securing the dash and top panel....

So after an hour or so labelling etc I am left with the following:

I had to make a right mess of the back of some of the instruments... its almost as if the brass nuts used had been super glued on... so much so there is no chance of re using the original securing method. On the new dash I'll have to bond them in I guess. Although I have started a tentative google search on if I could add a digital type dash
