Is the bottom edge padded? If not it has to be 19mm radius and the angles on yours don't look like that from the pictures.

Nice though.

good point, Adrian - the bottom of the dash (left side only) has a 40mm diam section of waste pipe tubing filled with a shaped 2x2 piece of wood (to give purchase to the 7off 1 1/4" screws) - the ply is then shaped to it, and it is all covered with vinyl.

As the section over the driver is steeply angled and filled with steering column, it wasn't necessary / possible to do it on that side. (I hope).

There are more photos of the components in my archive under 'interior' but, as yet, none showing how I fitted the radiusing bit.

It looks better on the car than sat on the back of my Tintop with clouds above it.

Gonna fit it with the Cowling to hide the Steering hole.

Mk 2 Escort instrument pod with the front curved face cut off flat, a piece of clear acrylic glue on and then a piece of thin alloy cut, shaped, bead blasted and glued to the front.

Very nice. Where did you get the rubber trim around the top? Mine always end up looking like a 5 year old did them. I've done 4 of them. Seriously.

Hi there Jasper,
I would like to ask you if the alcantara fabric that you have used is with some amount of foam on its back, or just the fabric itself? And the other question is - how do you treat the curves on the dash - heat, steam or just stretch it? I just drilled my dash yesterday and it is ready to be covered, but i do not know what fabric to put - with or without foam. Any advice will be highly appreciated.
Regards
Yavor

Yavor,
Foam has the advantage that looks better around corners, IMO, but has a couple of drawbacks, it gets cooked over time which may lead to the separation of the top layer and on open cars it retains moisture.

My Dash from New Zealand

I can't take credit for this since I bought the car off the original builder, but I really liked the dash layout. (I have added the AF gauge and mounted a remote set of Megasquirt ECU LEDs though)

Not being in the UK, we don't have a lot of the SVA radiusing issues you have.



I've taken a lot of inspiration from these forums and have a bunch of ideas welling up... Unfortunately a substantial number of them depend on me learning to lay up Carbon Fibre first :-)

Cheers - N

Wanted 'gated' aircraft switches, having seen them on another factory-built car, complemented by 'Savage switches' in the centre all set in a c/f factory dash.
