Happy to see the dash repair revisited.  I reckon you were trying to sell yourself on the previous go at it, but you weren’t buying your own arguments.   A dash sticks out as much as wheels and paint so a good one really sets the tone.

That’s turned out to be a damned simple exhaust Jeff, compare to the 911 octopus!

911's are a pain in the butt, as there is no room. I am sure they worried about mounting the engine and then thought 'ah crap, now we need to put the exhaust in here too' ;)

I am stubborn enough to not give up, but it doesn't stop me whingeing and moaning along the way ;)
