Ok ive been making progress and once again , ive decided to do things a little differently.

Ive got a complete 4th gen leather interior, including dash from Mechanical Animal,

So it would be rude not to use it.



Its just mocked up in this pic, but today i have been mounting it properly.

Nexus, that was really interesting mate, thankyou.

Ive mounted my dash in a different way than what he did, but it was really interesting to see how he got round some of the problems that i faced.

Mines pretty much mounted now, i wanted to keep the 2nd gen steering coloumn and the console.

All i can say is he must have spent a fair few $$$$$, mine is more like "cents" ....
