The 911 Dash

My goal for this part of the project was to put a complete 911 dash into the 914.  After a few measurements from my 911 and 914 I decided that it could work and I had a salvage yard section out the whole cowl and dash from an 87 911.  It will use a padded dash top that has been cut down and recovered, the 911 lower trim (knee pads), glovebox and door, and the rest of the necessary trim parts along with the 5  911 gauges.

The top of the metal dash will be filled in and then covered with foam and material the same as the stock 914 dash is.

The ends of the dash top will be reshaped with foam to fill in the sides and the entire top will be recovered.
