The problem with this thread Chris, is that now you're going to have to go into production making dash panels and cill plates! Put my name on the list! :-)

Dash looks lovely! Can't wait to see the cill plates!

Ive asked at work if they could engrave the SAAB logo and the airplane into the cill covers and have been told that it can be done they just have to write the program, so watch this space.

A bit of fancy framework, rendering and roofing in a period style will finish it off a treat Chris :wink: ...........

Plus it'll protect that unique loft decoration of yours :bag:

Had a go at making the cill covers today,got one spot on but the other came out a bit narrow and would not fit round the original cill cover. To get round this I have machined off the outer lip and they now both fit.

Image

Had a go at the engraving(?),not bad for the first try as I did it freehand with me small router and small chisels,

Image

Image

Might machine right through the cover and let the black of the original cill cover be the background.

Have done a little bit of work on me dash.

After two coats of clear lacquer, showing the radio plinth to tilt it forward so I can see the display.

Brackets to stop the bottom bits snapping off,

Image

Cold air vent bracket, bent to fit vent below dash,
Image

Fits like this,

Looks like this,

I know its not central!!!!! :lol: , but that might get a wooden surround as well :D .
