Has anybody used a flat pannel dash, the type found in mk indy's and westfields?
Im wondering how much modification would be required to make one fit an eagle?
I have a digital motor bike style biacle now so cant use the standard round guage style dash.
I was also looking at making my own from fibreglass but I realy dont fancy body filling and sanding that down, Im still recovering from the front end.

Any shape of dashboard can be made using mdf, chicken wire, T-shirts, string, fibreglass and body filler

Reebok, Lonsdale, Henley, Primark :) T-shirts are good for covering a 3 dimensional frame, and coating in resin to provide an organic shape. They have the right amount of stretch !
