  3. Hello Rob. Can help of course. Are you in Cape Town? Thanks for the compliment. My dash is fiberglass. It is pretty easy to fabricate the backing. I them covered it in leather. It is an easy job to tackle yourself. My speedo I got from a place in the states called Speedhut. They are really cool. You can customise your gauges the way you want them. Let me know what your specific questions are and I can answer directly.

    Hello!

    I am new to the Cobra Clan!

    I have been following your Shamrock thread with great interest!

    Stunning job, but can I ask for some help.

    I bought a Shamrock built Ford powered model last week, and I want to redo the dash.

    Where, or who do I contact with regard to replacing the dash. Mine is made of wood and has cracked rather badly. I also need to replace the speedo gauge and some switches...

    If you can help, that would be great!

    Regards.

    Rob
