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.July 1, 2011 at 4:35 pm #245293Montie HendersonParticipant

Very nice work on that dash. I especially like the glovebox. How’s that made?July 1, 2011 at 9:47 pm #245295Dan RosaParticipant

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
installation.December 12, 2011 at 10:23 am #245297RoyalParticipant
Colorado, Looks great. I need a glovebox. Too much stuff. Where did you get the box itself? Or did you make it also?
