Bit of a fiddle this. To get a decent fit between bonnet and dash you should have them taped together when mounting/adjusting the bonnet. Brackets to mount the dash are up to yourself as we don't have a particular design at this stage. Pics below show what we did on Jesses build (well what he did actually). It all works fine once done. They are very similar to whats on the Orange one and it feels like I have opened and closed the bonnet about 1000 times. We have also had a couple of different dashes on it and had the same one on and off a few times without hassle re aligning it.

Fire any questions back here, Regards, Andrew.

Hi Andrew. I note that the chassis in the pics is different to mine as I dont have the raised tubing that Jesse attached his brackets to. I was wondering if you could show an update picture/s as I am confused and the large bracket to hold the steering column protrubes out a fair way?

Hi Terry,

Yeah the outer brackets are included but are different.

They have 4 holes in them and bolt onto the top of the 45 degree 50 x 25mm upper tube. The other end of the dash mount plate (dash bracket) with four holes bolts to the top edge of the lower lip of the dash panel.

A picture will explain a thousand words once I find or take one. In the middle of a couple of days off so probably the 30th for a pic.

If you sit the dash in place its semi obvious where they might go. Bag with brackets and bolts should be labeled... I say should be!

Thanks for asking the question and back soon as possible with an answer.

Regards, Andrew.
