LHD Dash

Up for sale is a left hand dash. Parts pictured and include:
1. Lower dash with vent flap internals
2. Lower dash wiper motor cover
3. Lower dash heater vents
4. Lower dash dash tray
5. Lower dash center bezel cover
6. Lower dash plastic strip fascia - this is useable but cracked in a few of the screw holes
7. Mid dash metal mount
8. Dash vents and vent tubes
9. Upper dash
10. Ash Tray
11. Grab handle
12. Heater cover
Does not include screws and you can see from the pictures what else you may need to put together a complete dash. Please note that the lower dash does have screw holes in it where the air conditioning fascia was mounted. Overall the dash itself is in great condition.
Price is $500 plus shipping. I would say shipping would be no more than $50 due to the size.

I saw this about 10 minutes after Clay posted it. That price was so good I even considered buying it.

Guess why I'm going series on my d90 build. The plastic is crappy and doesn't last.

Rocky I'm with you. I've been drawing up something metal for LHD conversion (whenever that happens).

I would have jumped on this at $500 (Clay is being very generous) but paying the usual going rate @3x that I'd rather do some custom metal that's a series-esque throwback.

do you have any examples of what you're considering?

Right now just drawings in my notebook, but I'll be happy to share a couple of variations to be critiqued when I get them in a digital format.

I might be uninitiated, but, taking my dash apart to trouble shoot wiring/instruments makes me think a) there's some wasted space and b) there could be more thought put into how to access electrical, instruments, & controls and not use so much plastic to get to it.

Basically my thought is to do something with a center, right, and left section that can be accessed/removed independently with a crash pad across the top. Idea being that you could use it for RHD or LHD, with a punch out for the steering column. No plastic, all metal.

Conversely, maybe throw out the upper/lower left/right "stock" way of thinking and do a rear dash, an upper (crash pad) and a single front dash with the same idea of a punch out for LHD or RHD steering.

EDIT: And leaning towards something like the Steve Moal aircraft style instruments where you could access/remove each instrument independently without removing the entire gauge cluster to change a bulb etc.

Also would like to keep the vents, but with a larger center section (and possibly AC in the middle - Td5 inspired but with a series twist(?)). But I'm thinking of a plastic or metal cowl to place over the vents and direct the air while preventing exposure of everything behind the dash to the elements. (haven't thought that one out completely yet)

Finish would be powder coat or something like what they used on old aircraft instrument panels. And also fasteners that would allow you to remove it using fewer screws.

If I deviated from the series inspiration I'd do a center section (ala Td5) that goes down to the tunnel with a sealed fuse box somewhere.

Gauge cluster would be interchangeable left/right; possibly non-stock instruments, and an auxiliary cluster somewhere (middle dash pad, center, or above primary). Also trying to determine if there is a way to shift the instrument cluster or re-arrange so that you could do a vent on the offhand side of the wheel.

If anything is covered (crash pad) do it in a heavy saddle leather instead of vinyl. Regardless incorporate some mounting options on the crash pad for accessories/auxiliary instruments. If anything is covered and not metal use something heavier than the stock vinyl that won't tear as easily or show deformities.

Obviously a WIP and lots of noodling to be done.

I started thinking I'd do something carbon fiber, but, I think that would be a lot of effort and too modern; would want a duller finish on it than the carbon look and don't think there is a good way to cover it in something reasonable that's scratch or tear resistant and not look like 70's vinyl

I've got the BH lined up and conceptually aim to add a welded frame to accommodate the heater, wiring, protect the ECU, instruments etc. lots of work to be done before I get there. As for finish considering wrapping the frame in something.

What's a "BH"?

Curious about your ideas as well!

Bulkhead ? And would like to see pics too. Half way through a RHD to LHD conversion & the dash is the last bit to sort out...

Why not just graft in a series iia style dash?

Part of me wants to just rip out all of the Defender dash bits in my truck and replace with this:

Am toying with the idea of making a separate plenum for the heater using parts from my old RHD heater box for the up/down flapper & running flex ducts to the footwell & demist vents.

Can then make a simple two part lower dash that is a squared off version of the original. I can hide my Megasquirt ECU behind it then & also have efficient heating & demist too. If it's painted in a bedliner type of finish it should look OK in a trail truck. Or just leave the lower box off & just have the dash top pad & the grey vent trim panel, but would still need a closing panel at the pass side end...
