dash metal frame wanted

Post by brooky »

Hi

Looking for a dash metal frame so I can fit one of the replacement CC dash tops to it ready for putting into my Laser which has currently got the black Ghia dash fitted. Thanks, Mark

Hi Mark,
I take it you've already tries Martin or CCI?

Wouldn't it be good if the club made a repro frame to mount their dash tops on? Even dashes in crappy condition are listed on Ebay for silly money these days.

Andrew.

Hi Andrew, no I havent tried Martin yet but will definitely give him a call. It is a shame CC dont take in any old frames and offer them back out for people buying there replacement dash top so people can then get it all prepared ready for fitting, you know only too well the prep that is required. They could even do like the steering racks and use a surcharge to get people to send one back when they have done the swap over.. Look forward to catching up soon hopefully. Mark

I have a frame but it still has the foam part attached

I tried to repair it. It was sort of OK but I was offered a good one so abandoned this one

I have at least a dozen old dashes that I've saved for just this issue.
