For ages been sick of being blinded by the x3 gauges on the a pillar & wanted to put them in the centre above th heaters, but nee one makes them for the perfacelift.
So decided to graft a facelift gauge pod onto the prefacelift dash.
Took a mould of the dash & bonded it to the heater bezel, so when its finished it will blend in rather than looking as though i just plonked it there.

Found this on a buy it now or best offer on flea bay. Offered £30, which was accepted so £35 all in seemed fair......

Then received a mail to say they had dropped it when wrapping it up & damaged surface finish on the gelcoat & would i like a full refund or £10 discount. Mmmmmm, go on then . Seems its getting butchered anyway. lol!

Will updated once it arrives.

Nowt like custom work.

At least you get the pod cheaper - get it flocked once you have moulded it - will look perfect.

PS. Love the flocked dash.

Quick update.
Got the GRP smoothed out & added a bit filler to get the shape.

Test fitted to the dashbords to make sure it hadn't warped when it was cured.
