Mainly the dark panels and a dash board
Seats would be a bonus though

Loads of bubble dashboards about, i'll be using one out of a ROVER 25 donor car, the Mk2 25/ZR one would look different in an R8,
the squarer lines would suit it, wiring is a little bit of a pain and you need the Mk2 Air Box too as the internal/external air is switch
operated but not too hard.

I'm wanting to keep the older type dash board to be honest I have always preferred these as it's one of the things I like be about them I think there such a good looking dash board and make a great mug holder or shelf :clapping

(SORT OF) UPDATE


Nothing much to report, few more parts acquired, the ECU in order to run an OEM MAP sensor
and a front Strut Brace, asides that the car is still turning green but at least it survived the
winter, just got to wait a few months for the garage to be built and organised then I can give
it a jet wash and park it up in a nice dry place ready to be restored.
