Did you post the question before with the microsoft adress in it?

If so I went into detail on how to do it with glass as that is how I am doing it since to me it is simpler that cut and weld.

If you dont want to use that process it is similar by using the two steels only not using the glass molds. You will still have to blend the two steel housings in but they do fit when they are offset but there is alot of forming and slicing needed then strips needed to be added in to get it back in the outside towards the door as the dash drops slightly.

Sorry Pappyjim, I dont know if I upset you or what. I was little confused by your response. I just didnt know if you were the same guy as it is weird to have two posts on the same topic under different names.

Two dashes will work fine, I dont have 2 dashes so for me the glass route was simpler. And thought I should describe an alternative to consider in case you considerd not cutting up two dashes.

You can do it fine with 2 there is just some patch work needed for the shift on the driver door side as the dash has a downward tapper and the passenger shifts fine. In all you just need to fill and some feathering. If you have been hot rodding since the 50's it could be a snap for you.

Hope you find what your looking for and welcome to the site.

Speaking Of Dashes....have You Ever

I've seen a 40 Ford Dash used a couple of times in 35-37 Fords...Can someone tell me if this is a difficult installation? For instance is the contour and width the same as the mid 30's?
