    The 67 Aussie Dodge ute's didn't have a dash pad at all. So I made a custom one when I first bought and was planning on it being my daily. It's now become a total ground up custom build! After making a new fascia to fit Dakota digital gauges, I now made a full dash pad right up to the screen. This includes a modern style full width demist system. I can't get to work because we are in Covid lockdown, so I can't pad and cover the dash face or the new pad. I'll update that later.

              All the switches have arrived from Bluewire Automotive and installed. They look great and have a nice feel, worth the money! Final fit up has been done, just a couple of little things to finish to be happy with it. Just waiting for lockdown to end to be able to get to work to cover it!

                Finally back at work, so I have now covered the dash top. The blue painted section will later be covered in the matching vinyl once the A/C and fuse box as well as all the electronic control units have been mounted. There's a massive amount of electronics so a lot of though has to go into positioning of components.
