  6. I cut down a shoebox dash and put in an A roadster and it looked great. I don't have a pic though. Others we use the stock top rail and do a custom wood dash behind it

    When I found my '30 roadster it had a '32 3window dash coat-hanger welded into the stock dash rail. It's why I built the car.

    Not the best picture and a old one to boot.

    34 Chevy Master dash with a new insert for SW gauges, keeping the glove compartment. Will also have louvers on the top for defrost vent outlets.

    The hard part will be reproducing the three little chrome trim pieces in the centre panel. Anyone know of repros that are available?
