aluminum version of panel that covers vent levers

I apologize as I remember a thread on this and I thought I subscribed to it but apparently not. Also tried search but it did not come up.

Does someone make said NAS dash panel?

You mean this?

I've been kicking around the idea of doing a run if there was any interest.

I think there is potential for multiple dash pieces being reincarnated.

This is a good start!

I've got this piece completely designed and ready to go. I've got other dash pieces in various states of completion. I just wonder if there's that much interest in a piece like this.

I'd buy. I'd buy any replacement part built to last. Metal > Plastic.

The less plastic the better!

Put me on your list.
This is a part I didn't expect to be able to get in aluminum.

Carter this is one of the hardest parts to find for a lhd conversion. I could be a regular buyer for them.

I'm gonna get the ball rolling on these tomorrow. They may end up being steel and/or stainless steel instead of aluminum. I have some concerns with the heat input and warping with laser cutting aluminum on such an intricate part... but hey, they won't be plastic, so that's a win!

At least with a metal one you could paint it the same colour of your landy and give it that classic look
