Title: Holden Dash?
Post by: Noddy on September 28, 2011, 10:20:47 AM
Hi guys, a couple of years ago I saw a Holen Dash fitted into a Bedford Van which was in W.A but for the life of me I can't remember what Holden it came out of, can anyone help ???? I'd like to fit one into the Motorhome which is the CF340

Hey Guys, you will find that the most popular one has to the HX HZ GTS  dashes,  Phil VAN 58 had one in his SWB gold van. I think one guy from here has a monaro dash from his 68 monaro.

i made a fibreglass mould off this dash facier. didnt turn out as good as it could have.. it was when i was just starting out. i should pull it out and see if its usuable.would probably need to customize it a little. also had to destroy the orig to get it out of the mould. and still got all the guages somewhere.

I've heard the XA falcon dash are quite a good fit, think that includes the XB and XC

UNIONS, it's amazing what they can do, we used 2 in ours to link the transit rack with the custom column.

Would anyone be kind enough to confirm this? I would like to use a Ford xc dash or landau/LTD dash. Would prefer not to hunt one down and buy it if it's no good for the Bedford CFS

Cheers
