Se5a Fibreglass Tan and Black Dashboards

Post by Lukeyboy46 » Sun Feb 21, 2016 5:16 pm

Looking at getting a batch of these made with a big composites company locally, I'd like to see what interest there is before I spend the money.

I am aware there are 2 types of 5a dashboard and have taken this into consideration.

Hoping for around the £140 mark.

Let me know if you are interested.

Well Luke, when you've cleared that up, you can add me to the list. By the way how many orders do you require to make it viable?

there was a chap at Curbs a couple of years ago who was making them he had both styles available and various colours there was mention of them on here but can't find it now. I bought one from the guy it fitted better than ones made elsewhere but i never got it as good as original.

There are moulds out there which if found could make reproduction easier.

Any news on the re-manufacture of dashboards?!

It'd be great to be able to get hold new ones!

What's the current situation, Luke? Dis you get anywher with the project? I'm in the market for a tan dashboard for my '71 5a. - and also the panel over the dash, which has succumbed to too much sunlight and the centre console which has some splits or any the other bits of tan interior trim as well while we're talking.
