I think this was a recent thread started yesterday. I thought I saw the builder/designer of that post a thread on here.

Deslandes, I think.

He is known for making virtually all of his stuff from bent / cut sheet metal.

Good guy.

I agree. I was searching today for images of a more flush mount side locker and didn't come up with much I liked. I prefer that one vs. the MOD style door.

I plan to install their dash in my Ninety, powder coated to match the new paint job. Should look pretty good.

They have updated their facebook page and made it available for order.

Its tough to figure the spec out. Wondering as well how to access the BH vent levers.

I was wondering about that...

NOTE: The original ventilation control (joystick) must be replaced by a 3-position switch (provided in lever). The cable control for opening must remain open.

If you want to spend $530 on it go ahead but the piece sticking out on the passenger side front panel by the grab handle looks a bit poor.

If it's going in a RHD to LHD conversion you still need to source the lower dash, heater and a few other specific LHD trim bits that are getting harder to find these days, that's why I started with just RHD parts and made it work with an aftermarket HVAC unit.

Other than that.... nice work. Having so much access to cheap/free 3D cad these days makes things so much easier.... having to model that in 'Cardboard Assisted Design' would be fun
