That looks great :-) I'd flip out if I walked up on this not expecting it!

Many thanks! Appreciate it. I've been working on her some more, and need to get some new pics up this weekend. Hoods finished, now has the black stripe. Almost finished with the shifter modification. The pics above show the temporary solution, hope to have the finished shifter mod posted this weekend. Next up is replacing the top, already have the parts and hope to have that completed by next week. I have an A/C system from Wizard Air and am trying to find time to put that in, but with fall coming I may hold off till later since I want to put some tunes in her. Have decided to roll with just an iphone system vice using the IPad 2 that I have. Don't really want to be carrying an IPAD around everytime I get out of the vehicle.

Glad yall like it. Thanks for enlarging the pics.

Semper Fi,
John

Default help!!

I know this is an old post, but I'm trying to put a 2010 steering wheel in a fox. I want to retain original dash. Can you help me?

I have been working on the project but not early as earnest as I was able to do over the holidays.

Dash and frame were wider than the fox body. Cuts had to be made. That part of the project is primarily form fitting. Top of the dash had to be trimmed as well. The 05 dash sit deeper than the fox. To lock down the dash like the fox dash was, I've cut out the end cap from the top of the fox dash that screwed into the firewall. That piece will be fiberglassed to the under belly of the top of the dash.

Shifter is angled back. If your interested I'll post the measurements once I get to that part of the project. Center console is redesigned to be more functional. I'll have to post the prelim drawings.

Currently hung up on building the firewall mounting bracket. Primarily trying to find the time to work on it. Steering shaft is nearly completed. Can't build the last segment of the steering shaft until I have the firewall mounting bracket built.

Air ducting 90% complete. Built fiberglass air box connectors onto existing fox and 05 air ducting to match them up.

Door panels redesigned to carry on the traditional 65 panels. Big change to the door handle location because of personal tastes. Hope to have those built in three weeks.

My biggest challenge of all is going to be the instrument panel. Still don't have a solution that matches what I am looking to achieve. More to follow on that topic in a couple of weeks.

I have a ton of pics and need to post them up. Lots of little things for anyone that ever decides to take on this type of project.
