    Sumo Dash

    Does anyone have any more original design for the Sumo Dash other than the standard one used? Im getting pretty bored with seeing everyone having the same setup. Ive got a spare standard Fibreglass dash and am thingking of modifying it for fitment over the winter period. I already have some problems as the previous owner decided to bond in all the warning lights so I cant remove them without removing the dash so it would make sense to do the whole thing at one time.
    Ideas anyone?

    Ken in my gallery I have some pictures of the flat bottomed dash I put in my old sumo, I used mdf which I varnished after cutting all the holes. It not only looked better but gave me a lot more leg room too!

    I decided to build a centre instrument section which comes out without the rest of the dashboard

    Beware of using thin ((<1cm) ply for the straight across look - it'll be wobbly unless re-enforced.
    Been there, done that.
