Top Quality Modification and Guide, itís brilliant that the holes needing to be drilled and cut out are already marked out under the dash

Iíll need a couple of pairs of underpants to change over every time I take a piece out of the dash

Itís a big step to take in modifications but most defiantly worth it,

Iíll have to get going on this soon, all eyes on e-bay for the ST or RS dash Piece B)

A+

Clocks look great , sadly no turbo on mine or i would fit the clocks.

As for the Dash storage , i have to say i have never ever put anything in there.If i did not have it i would not fit one IMHO , the lid is very flimsy and as its on the top summer days makes it not an ideal place to store alot of things because of the heat.

I will keep my supply of tissues and polo mints in there (damn now everyone knows about my mint addiction) :ph34r:

Maybe my phone charger

Cheers all, yea it takes a bit of guts to do but once you get stuck into it and make sure you keep within the bowl you can't go wrong really.

What did you use to cut it?
and how did yo get the gauges to fit in the slot without a hole being left in the centre from the original middle gauge.

sorry for all the questions,
just very interested in this mod B)

I used a sharp Stanley knife to first cut out the foam on top then underneath the foam is a hard plastic, I used a junior hacksaw blade to saw the plastic ( this was the best way to just gently do it and keep within the bowl).
The holes above the original clocks are the trickiest, I used a angle drill to drill upwards to get the holes as spot on as I could, again it doesn't matter much because the plastic on the unit covers up any mess.
The dials were super tricky, I removed the original three
dials completely and was left with an empty pod, brought two 52mm dials and had a housing to house them, unfortunately I didn't take any pics as I was doing them should of the amount of people that are asking me how I done it)
Hope this helps a bit.
