MGB Dash Top Vinyl Replacement

The task is very difficult even when the steering column is disconnected and the centre console has been removed to provide access for fingers. Also the use of small spanners by feel is required as you cannot see the nuts etc. Eventually I had to also remove the fresh air vents along with accompanying ducting to remove the top dash panel.

The old vinyl and cardboard backing were used as templates to mark out and cut a new vinyl top and MDF backing that was undercoated and top coated with epoxy enamel. The vinyl top was then glued with contact adhesive to the backing and also to the front of the dash behind the padded beam.

Re-assembling with the new panel was just as difficult but I eventually won and am pleased with the end result albeit with a little less skin on my fingers and knuckles.
