Thread: SWB Dash Radio Cut-Out Repair?

  1. #1

    SWB Dash Radio Cut-Out Repair?

    Recently picked up a sweet little '66 Gulf Blue 912 from a fellow member. Car has lots of original touches but, unfortunately, someone did this to it:

    That radio has to go and I have a correct, W-series Frankfurt on standby.

    I've done the same job on a LWB dash and many vendors are selling those parts but I'm having trouble locating what I need for a SWB car. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Exactly, Mike. I see Stoddard has the entire dash trim set. Wondering if that's my only option? And if I need any other parts?

    I have been making the dash facia sets for years ,
    as the only one making a correct one for each year 66.67.68 yes they are different :-)
    Problem is you most likely need to weld in a metal plate in the dash it self
    as the brushed alloy trim is so thin, it will not hold the radio it self
    but do note if you only change the center piece there will be a difference due to the sun etc

    or you can delete the radio and use a radio delete cover, but doubt it will cover the hole

    but they are on stock for all years , at 120 EURO + 20 EURO postage to US ,
    can post pics later if you are interested

    Please, Marek. Is $120 euro for the full set? Or just the piece I need?

    For my wood trimmed '66 dash, I bought a period set from Adam (unobtanium) and had the dash rewelded so that it is strong enough to take the weight of the radio. I did consider the radio delete plate, but as the car came with a radio, I decided to go the more expensive route. The only issue was grinding down the weld afterwards ensuring that it didn't damage the integrity of the VIN...
    I had to do a couple of minor repairs to the wood trim, but, it all looks splendid now.
    I appreciate the 912 is a different trim, but the principal holds good...

    I had the same problem with my dash being cut out I had my metal shop guy fix it with the skills he has it was expensive.
    Covered it completely like the whole was not even there then took a pattern to make the new cut .

    My first thought before I bit the big buck bullet . Woody radio sells a stainless support plate that could be tacked in from the back or fit it has the correct profile I was going. TO go that route check it out

    Marek,
    I'm just about to order your set but I was looking this just couple of days ago and which one to order; I have fairly early 66' 912 and very early 67' 911 and they seems to have exactly same brushed aluminium trim when I compared these (material finish). I need this for 67' so correct one I should order is 66' one so brushed aluminium? (brushed, not polished)

    Thanks!!

    Is there a website to compare Marek's parts and order?
