Bought some years ago a 110 that was involved in accident, so did a rebuild new chassis, new engine, new wings etc but only discovered later on that the driver hit the heater channel on the bulkhead with his knee and ruined it. 'warm' air arrived on the feet but nothing on the window.

I found a dash with Bowy Odink with 3 cover plates

So everything out

The grey box is folded by hand in alu and connected to the blower. Two holes on top to go to the left and right part of the front window

Later on I added 2 small holes at the sides that go to the left and right of the dash as demister for the windows in the doors

A first presentation to see if everything fits

The black box in the middle I found in Newbury, but the gearstick needs to be bent a bit

A first mockup, position of speedo is due to the lack of depth because of the airtube behind

 Still using the original TD5 switches and the holder for them

The blower is now via a pwm and works very good

Some weeks later I found a double din radio with Carplay and input for front and rear camera so changed layout again

Next step is to fit the tripmaster and some other stuff

You see to have put the steering wheel on the wrong side ;)

 You also seem to have a lot of compressors and air lockers :blink:

Looks really good work, dashboards are hard to do without looking bodged but thats tidy!

I really like how easy that is to strip out and change or service. Having 3 panels like that is a great design 👍🏻

Position of the panels is maybe not 100%,  but indeed 3 panels makes it a lot easier to access for example the wiper motor.

I suggested to make new dash versions deeper at the top resulting in more vertical instruments but then you have more space for the window ventilation and more depth for double din radio and cb

IT was apparently (and quite obviously) a total pig, just wanting to go in a straight line all the time. Classic case of 'form' over function.

:lol: now I'm wondering if this is the same guy that had the D2 on Unimog axles that was about 10ft tall and equally stupid?

Maybe they decided he needed a little comfort? Still, if they enjoy building then why not, probably better than what I turn out :D 

What was the thread about again :blink:

250 hours unpaid work for £660,000 is alright! A lady in our village got 100 hours for £30,000 benefit fraud and I thought that was good at £30 an hour after deductions. 

My Range Rover went down that way, think it was frome though. Maybe he could max extreeem it like I never could :lol:

Anything North of the M4 is North; and as such grim, dark, satanic and brooding, full of whippets, ferrets and rather pleasant beer

We will have to compromise that anything between the M4 and Doncaster is the Midlands, where they have funny accents, strange pass times and extra toes. I think this will be where your satanic brooding is also based, as the folk north of Doncaster wouldn't entertain such nonsense, we don't have time between the ferreting, pigeon fancying and badger baiting. :lol:
