New Dash Style

This guys is selling the new style dash and is claiming it will fit any style defender with "a little DIY". I'm doubting its even possible without a newer style bulkhead but I thought I would throw it out there and see if anyone has been daring enough to try.

I wonder if the dash was designed in a way where the components could be configured for RHD or LHD? Anyone know? We all know the TD5 dash will fit our NAS defenders but I have never seen a post about anyone that tried to fit the newest style dash. Just wondering if it's really possible. Sure looks good.

It might look good, but how would you make it functional? There is a big new heater/ac unit that goes behind the dash and the wiring is completely different. The guage cluster is all different LR3 stuff and is computer controlled. On top of all that, bulkheads with the new dash have blocked-off vents, so you lose access to those too.

I would never attempt this without a bulkhead swap (the new bulkhead is pretty radically different) and I doubt I'd even bother unless I was doing a PUMA conversion. I would at least want a functioning PUMA truck nearby for reference.
