The 2nd gen mold was modified to make this dash.
The brow was lowered too far and the gauge cluster didn't fit the new dash, not unexpected.
I had to mod this dash to fit the cluster and to change the cluster mounting system. This needed to be done in the car.
At the same time I wanted to try the tach boss at the ash try delete (on the dash) but didn't want it incorporated into the mold. I didn't really need it myself, just tinkering with ideas. It could be used as a clock or whatever as well.
This become the new plug for the third gen mold.
I cleaned it up and resprayed it with clear. It still needs a final sand and polish.
Other than the tach boss, the only other difference this dash would have from fresh out of the mold is the ply direction is changed where the cluster clearance mod was made. Trying to match ply direction in a patch would look repaired, changing direction looks intentional. I will try to get a photo.
From there, I layed-up a new dash with out the gauge to prove the mold.
That is what is in my car now.
