Have a look under the most viewed threads section. There's a post your dash thread that is full of ideas.

I know its a matter of personal taste and finances, but I cant think of anything that ruins a dash more than trying to reuse the cheap plastic ford crap.
Ive never seen an OE sierra dash look 'good' no matter how well its integrated or installed.

I agree - it never looks right IMHO.

I approached this with my MK Indy, but gave up when I just couldn't find a way of doing it that I was satisfied with.

dash

I agree the sierra dash does look bad on reflection, can any body give me a place where I can buy a good set of gauges and a bit of advice on the senders.

Mine has the donor dash. I plan on upgrading it over the winter but to be fair it does everything you need and itís use allows you to prospone some costs and give years of fun/tinkering with upgrades.

Siarra dash

Hi you have a point and as the dash is a small part of a major build and as I am building from ground up, the chassis is now fully welded and this part is not needed for a few months so depending on the on costs I still might go to the donor as the IVA is for most on my mind.

It doesnít make it faster or any less fun. I took it to the Parsons Drove car show Sunday afternoon.
