That would work too. That way we get the full view of how it looks.

Well, actually I do...

Earl gave me permission to drive any one of his while he is gone, and everyone knows this is a once in a lifetime opportunity here! So I just cant mess that one up. Besides it the prefect time to swap out his 5 speed, I dont think he will ever notice the difference!

This is really interesting.. I don't think all SVXs could pull it off.. like doing barcelona red dash with my tan interior
However, in darker SVXs, I think it kinda adds to the futuristic look (like they do in some concept cars)..... but also a lot of classic cars go this route when restoring their vehicles. It can be a really smooth effect. Good luck on the results.

Besides, there is no prefect time to swap out his 5 speed because they are under lock and key as well as guard dogs patrolling the area. If I was eaten by one of the dogs, no one will ever notice the difference!
I fixed your post.

Thumbs up

It's the first time I've seen a dash where the thin parts at the bottom haven't been snapped by some lazy mechanic trying to get the switch clusters out without disconnecting the cables.

Looks good in claret. Better than the nasty dark grey paint that Subaru used on my 94 dash. If only burr-walnut effect came in a spraycan.
