Mocking up the dash

I love when what you mock up in cardboard works out better in real life.

Original dash widened 2.25", deepened 1.75", tilted 6 degrees.... And the gauges still ended up just where I need them to be.

Imagine that.

The 7" touch screen radio just arrived, center console next.

That's one of the nice things about working with fiberglass kits; easy to modify and/or fix mistakes.

Outlaw Performance. Great body, flat panels, great doors, military grade floor. So-so fenders, less than premium fit out of the box.
