In reply to # 898653 by RPJ Very nice! Not sure if you re-did dash, but it is looking sweet!

The dash is still the original, but sanded down the lacquer and put new on ^^

Very nicely done! I hope mine looks as nice as yours when I am done with mine.
I'm sure you are looking forward to having it out on the road (turning heads there too).

On the before picture (the orange thing) is a Raw Striker 1600 20V (toyota) ( a Lotus Super 7 replica)
And under that cover it is a Pilgrim Sumo ( Ac Cobra Replica) but a only a rolling shell..
And we have also a Ford GT40 replica! And that was gone that day so i could bring out the spit ! :p
