Late Td5 Dash Fitting
My NAS 110 bulkhead was rusted beyond repair. So I installed a new late Td5 bulkhead and decided to add the TD5 center cluster as well.

Started fitting all the pieces today but it didn't fit very well.
Here are the parts I'm using:

Dash bottom - from 95 D-90
Td5 instrument cluster
Td5 upper metal bracket
Dash top - from 95 D-90
Grab handle - from 95 D-90

There seems to be too much of a gap between top of dash and Td5 instrument cluster.
Grab handle doesn't line up properly.

So my question is:
Do I need to use the Td5 bottom, top and grab handle?

You need the TD-5 lower and it should all work. Email me and I will give you the part #'s

does the TD5 lower have the "cutout" already made for the center console or do you have to cut into it like the NAS lower??

Is the lower the "plenum" portion or some other part?

What year TD5 do you specify?

TDI Guy August 5th, 2008 10:54 AM

It has the cutout and the proper flanges to bolt it all together..

TDI Guy,

Do you have the list of parts to do the dash conversion? Is it expensive? Any issues with having a soft top and the readio in the dash? I know there are pictures of your rig on the site but can't find them. And most importanlty how often do you eat at the Fireplace on route 17?

TDI Guy August 7th, 2008 05:48 PM

Give me a few days and I will find the part #'s I here is a huge thread on my truck build in this section.... started by me. check it out.

LOL The Fireplace rules. THe best Hamburgers and onion rings anywere.

Love the steak sandwich. I miss NJ. From Hillsdale. So how hard is it to covert to a new dash and how expensive? Going to stare at your write up now

TDI Guy August 8th, 2008 05:59 AM

Why do you need a new wiper motor cover?
I do this conversion a lot and the stock NAS wiper cover fits 100%.

In 110s I change them to et rid of the stupid 4" speaker hole, but on a 90 it is not required.

TDI Guy August 8th, 2008 07:07 AM

I know. I just put it up there if someone wanted the part # for a new one to replace it or what ever...
