I will show you. I do not recommend following me unless you have fabrication ability, equipment or interest.

For a straight purchase, I highly recommend the raptor dash, which is made much more robustly than the MUD UK dash.

Raptor Engineering Custom Landrover Dashboard Parts

The advantage of the MUD UK is that you can customize it with some simple hand tools. But the downside is that once you cut it, it's cut permanently.

Raptor also makes the other binnacle/instrument clusters that you are asking about. Some of the vendors here in the US stock their parts, it would be worth checking prices.

Started the weekend off changing my oil using Rotella 15/40 for the first time, I usually use conventional 10w/40. Noticed the new filter I ordered was a bit shorter than the previous one of the same part number.
Today I replaced my rubber fuel filler hose and rubber breather/overfill hose. No more gasoline smell every time I fill up.
Feeling like I was on a roll I went ahead and started replacing the seals on my brake master cylinder reservoir. Looked like a simple job, didn't know I was basically rebuilding the whole master cylinder.

Installed my new tire carrier and hella 3rd brake light


Have to figure out some wiring gremlins (dome light and ARB compressor suddenly don't work) but overall i'm very happy with both the carrier and light.
