S3 Dash Panel


Recommended Posts

Would anyone here have a dimensioned drawing for the S3 dash panel. As expected, mine's in a million pieces and it would be good to have one laser cut in solid Aluminum. But I need to provide the engineering shop with a properly dimensioned 3rd angle projection drawing.

I can do the drawing using Adobe Illustrator, but I need dimensions.

You're talking about the gauge panels? They are in three parts and the side pieces aren't flat. I can take some dimensions, but it's probably more work than you're thinking.

I am talking about the middle plastic piece on which the gauges are mounted. Mine's cracked in a few hundred places.

The central instrument panel is featherweight plastic, utterly marginal. For an upgrade I decided to fashion a replacement out of 1/4" MDF board in 2 layers so as to leave the instrument faces in a recess, spraying it with wrinkle finish for what seems a smart look and no worries with structural integrity.

Cheers

I am looking at a 1-piece Aluminum laser cut item. Then sprayed matt black or wrinkled finish.
