Thanks for your generous comments Morph. In answer to your questions I designed and modeled both the Dashboard and the Warning Light Array. The Dashboard was routed out by a company in your neck of the woods, the book matched Burr Oak veneer sheets I selected from a supplier in Bath, sorry to appear a little vague but it was a few years ago, and finally the veneering together with polishing of the Dashboard was undertaken by Chapman and Cliff . Also with regard to the Warning Light Array, the body was additive manufactured in titanium into which the illumination lens that I made were fitted.

Many thanks, an excellent result.

Good, now that is sorted, perhaps a +8 owner can compare dimensions to Owen's diagram thumbs smile
(Nice dash Owen but I'm sure I've said that before).

I know where you are coming from Owen.
Going out for a walk avoiding everyone is getting to be a drag! I want to drive further than the local supermarkets - even if only in the MINI smile
I'm just as bad for thread drift! laugh2
