    ^^ that’s good info. I’ve already gotten a used dash from roverlandparts.com. I got halfway done with the install last night. [​IMG]

    Wow, looks great! My LR3 dash is cracked all around the passenger air bag seams (a common issue with LR3's), but it has not spread anywhere else yet, so I am hestiant to tear it all apart and potentially introduce rattles or squeaks - let us know how it ends up!

    Coming together nicely. Now in this shot I can clearly see the stitching on the binnacle that mine doesn't have. Hope you can get it all buttoned up and back on the road this weekend.

    Looks really great. Good job. Better than factory IMO. Was an honor to help you. Enjoy your well done job. Have fun. God bless you all.

    Just a final update - I got everything back together this weekend and cleaned all the leather with Chemical Guys cleaner and applied the leather serum to the dash.

    The only advice I have for the next guy/gal is to make sure you get the two bolts out of the bottom of the floor console out before you disconnect the battery. You will need the seats way forward to get to them. Extend the steering column all the way out and put the shifter in Neutral before disconnect of the battery. Also be careful as you can accidentally bump the shifter back into park AFTER you remove the knob/handle. You will have to reconnect the battery to resolve that issue.
