biggrin DIY EA Dash Replacement *pics*

If you've always wanted to replace the cracked dash in your EA but didn't know where to start, I've made a guide to show you how

As some of you may know, late last year my brother and I completely changed the EAII's worn interior to a VGC ED one, this included changing the cracked dash. I took pics along the way and a few months ago I decided to make this tutorial to help anyone else with a cracked dash.

Anyway, here it is:
http://www.nzinaus.fordforums.com/DashReplace.doc

Starts off a bit formal then gets relaxed along the way because I just couldn't be stuffed setting it out, it finishes abruptly too because Wor decided to delete some of it and the end disappeared, so I rushed the finish.

Thanks to Karl for uploading the file.

Cheers,

Sundeep

$80 for the bare dash or around $120 with everythng attatched. That's everything besides the stereo and cluster in most cases.

I'm yet to do this in my own EA.
