    Finally started on a project last winter to replace the original dash

    with a custom hardwood dash (Hawaiian Koa). Several years ago I

    purchased some Koa (native Hawaiian hardwood) to use for

    gunstocks. The original dash was showing wear so I started this

    project last November. I removed the old dash, being careful to

    mark all of the wires. Using the old dash as a pattern, I cut the

    new dash to fit and also cut out a glove box (lacking in the

    original). The photos are self explanatory.

     They made it to the photo gallery.

     Beautiful dash !! Are those duplicates of the back of each gauge with the wires attached in the respective positions?

    That’s a neat console also.

    Very nice work on that dash. I especially like the glovebox. How’s that made?

    The glovebox is a plastic container that fits into a routed groove and

    clamped into place with a clip on each side. This allows me to

    remove the container for cleaning. Rather than wire labels, I used

    hardboard disks and machine screws to copy the backs of the gauges

    and attach the wires. This allowed me to play with the gauge

    placement as well as clean up the wiring harness before final




    Colorado,  Looks great.  I need a glovebox.  Too much stuff.  Where did you get the box itself?  Or did you make it also?
