    Had some more time to work on the car, the fixed glass is now out, front glass i just managed to push out gently seal and all. I wasn't aiming to keep the seal but it just worked that way. The rear glass i cut the seal and popped it out, managed to drop the front end as well and remove the front calipers. The dash is now out and i am working on the dials and switches etc. The front heater box is a work in progress, and i am starting to remove the head liner from the rear moving forward. I also found the numbers on the dash and a very interesting tag on the drivers pillar on the black windscreen column. the pics are attached.

    I also found these numbers on the fuel tank, its meant to be a 100L plastic tank I will do some searching and see if i can verify that it is 100L tank. which will be great for long trips

    So that's a Mustard yellow 2.4E with an oil door and a 100L tank? Sound about the perfect long-distance 911 to me....

    In regards to the getting the Dash recovered, are there any recommendations of who to send it too ? i am based in Sydney NSW, but i am open to hearing who does the best work, why and where they are located. Any indicative price or costing would also be helpful.

    cheers

    Hi Clayton i looked at this recently and after searching the threads got in contact with George at Air Motor Sports george@autoinno.com who quoted $495 for the dash and $295 for the speaker grill. His work looked great (or the guy they sub to?). In the end I went for a new dash from Lakewell.com and although not fitted yet it is beautifully made. There are a few long, long, threads on the registry which basically boil down to only one manufacturer who sells to different outlets, one of these is Lakewell based in Belgium.
