Thanks for the offer of the template which if you are happy to send I will gratefully reimburse the P+P and promise the safe return of the template .
I have an original S2 Elan dashboard which after studying photographs looks to have the same layout of toggle switches and dials so I would be hoping to transfer the correct dimensions of the dashboard equipment via the S2 dash to the the S1 dash cut out I take from your template.
I will PM my details to you .
Much appreciated

The template is actually a suitable blank. Infact its probably better quality ply that we could source, however, it was not mine to ?Finish? so we just used it to make an outline copy. (Also note, in the other pictures, we have additional cut-outs for 1 additional gauge, oil-pressure warning light and the battery cut-out switch/lever, these are not standard on an S1 off course)

I?ve still got the Template, as in picture 2 and 3 below. If all else fails, might be a starting point Greg, and I?m sure he would be happy to loan it out.


Hi Greg,
AT some point I'll be looking to get a S2 dash made and would welcome making a template from an original. I may be in touch! If you wouldn't mind?
