After the previous posts on curtains, flooring, speakers and upholstering the OEM steering wheel and dash frame the final result can (finally) be shown today. Pfff.
It was much harder then I thought to place everything back. Somehow getting the new LED dash lights to work was a nightmare. But its ready now and it looks amazing. The plexiglas dials were also replaced, all shiny and clean again. I am impressed how that old dash looks brand new now. On the OEM cockpit speakers covers are now the new tweeters and in space below the new mid-range speakers. Also 2 new speakers in the bedroom and connected with the rear TV. Under the driver seat a sub woofer. There are better places for a subwoofer, but this would kill useful storage space. It sound like you’re in a club. Well I got my new Melamine kick ass dinning set so hubby got his stereo.
The last hurdles to take before closing the dash was connecting display of the rear camera to the reverse light. So that when you back up the screen pops out automatically and shows what’s behind you. Another thing still waiting to be placed back is the steering wheel. It got upholstered but during the rough removal from a friend who wanted to surprise me (!?! he sure did) a piece broke off, which needed to be repaired. Meanwhile its all in, but sometimes during cruising with music, I honk the claxon and everything starts to squeak.. Some loose contact I guess.
After many months I can now proudly present to you the new improved dash and cockpit.
