S1 Dash spacers?

PostPost by: mgfollett » Mon Apr 12, 2021 4:28 pm

Are there small wood spacers, maybe 1/2 inch thick that go behind dash between fiberglass? I have two that I think were behind dash but not sure where they go! (didn't note when pulled dash to restore)

Thanks, Mike

On the S2 they are behind the lower corners and self tapping screws pass through the dash and wood blocks before screwing into the fibreglass. I don't know where the inner end of the S1 dash attaches.

Actually the self tapping screws might be 4BA set screws as I seem to remember they used to come loose! Perhaps I should lock nut them.

my S1 (with early half dash) had them at all the upper bolts holes. The lower two bolts near the shifter didn't have any.
