    greetings all
    well started work on the dash board, but not sure about it really considering making another.
    as you all well know space is of a premium and I am trying to shoe horn some sort of glove box for some limited storage, I am now thinking of leaving out the cutout
    curve at the bottom of the dash to give me a little more room I am also considering making it an angled dash to follow the contour of the top deck, any sugestions on dash
    design would be a great help.

    hiya the depth of the dashboard and the size of the steering wheel look like it might hamper getting in and out of the car.

    I would say goodbye to the glove compartment, I have, as I never used it anyway and utilise the space for other things such as diales and have put the windscreen wiper motor behind where you have your glove box to free up space on the bulkhead.

    I would also lose around an inch on the depth of the dashboard.

    Only my opinion, others will have a different idea.

    I can't see it - invalid attachement ? ? ?

    1 I've uploaded many Roadster dash pics into a gallery on this site, may give you some ideas
    2 As lister says that big wheel may impede getting in and out. KEX has longer seat squabs and a big wheel, makes it more difficult cos you can't get your feet under you(see pic)
    3 Keeping it where it is makes sense to me, maybe you could trim a bit off the bottom
    4 You may need the arced cutout to clear the gear lever NB KEX gear lever is on a custom made extension and further back

    Not showing for me. The link brings up an "invalid attachment" announcement.

    Nice looking dash,
    my problem is I have a habit of wanting to monitor all engine parameters so I do tend to clutter the dash.
