Any news recently on these?, whos got theirs and who hasnt as Im almost at the bottom of the list (story of my life lol). Fitted my radio now but need the plates to fill the holes in on the dash, noticed that a lod of the air from the heater actually comes out of the holes near the stereo when the dash plates are removed so the pipework isnt that good under the dash either.

Not at the moment, but he said he would look into it if there was enough interest (and there has been quite a bit) - best to email barry directly thumbsup

I've sent my dash panels to Barry to be used as moulds for LHD, so it's coming. Send him a mail if you are interested. He's also looking into center console, should only be that cutouts are mirrored compared to RHD.

Mark.

As a guess, I'd say around a third the weight of the originals thumbsup

(tbh tho it's not going to save you very much as the originals really aren't that heavy!)

New thread would be the best, to keep this one clean. I've sent some details regarding LHD center consoles to Barry as well. Also asked him about the "tunnel" in front of the center console.

Regarding the door cards and handle guards, fitted mine yesterday. Wrote a quick guide with some photos etc as well for those in need. Can be found on my site.

just fitted my dash plates and they look superb, just one little snag and was wondering if anybody had the same problem of two of the heater panel screws fouling the tufnel spacer material on the back of the main plate? I had to remove two small areas of the spacer material to stop the screw heads holding the plates away from the dashboard between the heater control/radio opening, not a big problem as the Dremmel soon sorted that but just a heads up for anyone else fitting theirs. Do look nice though much better than the fake carbon I had before, getting the old sticky foam off was a sod though. Darren....

I didn't come across this, tho my screws are fairly recessed :huh:

Glad you like them B)
