Forgot to mention I also have a dash piece set with no holes whatsoever that should be ready in the coming weeks to delete hvac controls, radio, lighter, fog light switch, defroster switch, and the seatbelt lamp.

Alex what a great build. Love the detail. Quick question, earlier in the build it looks like you had a Rennline lower dash but changed back to the oem leather covered knee pads. Did you not like the Rennline. I was thinking of getting the Rennline lower dash and your car is the first I've see with it installed. Also I might be interested in buying some of your parts in anodized black but still in deciding how I will be changing my interior.

Hi Brian, thank you for the kind words. Yes itís true, I did change from the rennline lower dash piece back to the oem leather one. The rennline one is great and I like slimmer profile it gives the dash, a little more knee room. However when I designed my own dash pieces I had based the measurements off the oem lower pieces. The problem is that for a seamless look I created a bend in my pieces to match the curve at the ends of the oem piece. When the rennline piece arrived I realized they cut the ends flat at 90 degrees. This caused a strange gap and overlap that I didnít like so I recovered the oem pieces and used them instead.

You can see the tapered down edge in these two pictures. I donít have a picture that close up of the rennline piece at the moment unfortunately. I still have the rennline piece that I never used if youíd like to buy it for cheaper. However, I donít recommend you use the rennline piece with the pieces I made unless you donít mind doing a little trimming. Let me if youíre interested or have any questions!
