Default Double Din Dash Rebuild, Land Rover Discovery

Double Din Dash Rebuild, Land Rover Discovery



Over the weekend, I was able to pull off the dash and see what I could work with…

Well, 5 minutes later, a Dremel in hand, I realized I would have to finish the job. Lol









Materials:

Sandpaper -180 and 340 grit
One Land Rover Factory Dash
Rotary tool with cutting saw and sanding cylinders
U.S. Composites 3:1 Epoxy Mix
U.S. Composites Glass bubbles Filler
Evercoat Body Filler
SEM Satin Black Paint
SEM Plastic Adhesion Spray
SEM Flexible Surface Primer
Mixing sticks, cups
Head Unit Sleeve
I think that’s it?


(By the way, NO ONE makes a double Din adapter for land rovers, goddamn!)



Previous setup Shots….











The Ugliness….







Starting dash….






Initial cuts…..

That's awesome. Crazy how it looks like junk after cuting it up, and so nice and clean once done.

That looks hot! But one question, why didn't you mold the trim ring in with the dash? IMO it would have looked much nicer for almost no additional work. Just a thought.........
