EA to EF Dash Conversion SMALL UPDATE

Well, this will be the first post of many regarding my dash conversion.

PART 1) 6/07/03

Picked up the dash/consol/wiring/computers/kitchen sink today. Much thanks goes out to FordFan351 and his mate (forgot your name sorry) for all his help pulling his wreck appart today :)

I havent organised everything yet, as i just got home with the stuff. I've taken a few photos of the gear.








Well, its going to be a long process, but hopefully well worth it.

Cheers

Daniel

Awesome awesome awesome!! I get all fuzzy inside before a new project like that! A few reasons why I wouldn't attempt that...
  • My parents would get all worried that I would screw my car permanently.
  • I would think the same.
  • It'd take me ages and I couldn't do without my car.
  • I don't have a fckn clue what is going on with all those wires! (Although I'd probably figure it out eventually).

Remember; we're all relying on you Walky Can't wait for some more pics. :)

Tomorrow is going to be devoted to organising everything, lableing the wiering, start removing EA dash.

Re: EA to EF Dash Conversion

good stuff dude! May be something I'll do in the future (missus misses the EL dash from my old car!)
Will be the last thing on my mind though.
Make it fast then make it comfy.
