For two years I saw an instrument housing in a G-specialised shop in Holland.(Shop does not exist anymore.) that I liked very much.
As our new workshop is not fully operational I keep myself busy with working on the smaller items of my 230G cabrio, so I decided to make
a housing that would serve my purpose.
It is made of the two parts of the original 460 instrument housing. (part no.
A460 689 0790 for the panel and A460 689 13 08 for the cover.)
I think the pictures speak for themselves.
This is a prototype so if anyone has any suggestions or ideas, please
you're welcome.

Clever thinking and very well done.

Is that last picture (dscn1132.jpg) the same as the previous ones? It seems to sit better on the dash.

Tanks

No, it is not the same picture. The last picture shows the trim where the pod actually is mounted. On the interior pictures the pod is just standing loose on the trim.
To make everything work in a safe way I had to sacrifice a metal top dashboard piece and a dashboard trim. I had to make some holes in them for the wiring and for a safe mounting.

Hi Wout, very nicely done. It's always the attention to detail that makes these jobs so satisfactory. Sorry to hear your workshop isn't up and running after your disaster.
