Iíve got two of what I believe are yours from the first run and are just plastic shells that are really not up to my liking for an expensive restoration. Let me know. Joel

yes, hard plastic copy

also Quote: This batch we will bring closer to the original grain of the type 3 but not a exact copy

So. Where are we on this? :D

Retrovan Tue May 07, 2019 2:50 am

Sorry for delay but its been hell getting the machine time to do these dashes.

We should have them out of production late next week, and then we will be drilling the speaker holes.

So we should be ready to ship within two weeks time.

Will be placing photos of the dash as they come off the line.

good news I am sure.

So the run has just been completed,

will be starting to get them ready for shipment in the next few days.

will post photo's of the last run so you can have a look as the grain has been reduced as requested by most and because the last grain can not be made any more due to issues with the machines.

Will most probably go down the list as 1st come 1st serve, so if you are on the list, please confirm by PM if you still want , what you want and how many you want.

Will retain old price for international airmail, at US$ 255 without speaker holes and US$ 300 with speaker holes all in.

Payment only by PayPal

Please note we do not insure the shipment

Herman

Retrovan Wed May 29, 2019 5:58 am

Here are the latest dash finishes.

Please note they have a smaller grain




Thanks

Herman

Just the speaker holes take time.

Thanks

Herman

Retrovan Tue Jun 11, 2019 12:27 am

1st batch of orders have been sent out,

thank you

Awaiting contact from the list guys

PM me as others are asking for stock

Herman

Retrovan Thu Jun 27, 2019 1:53 am

Have sent out a number of orders and now need the list to come forward.

Please PM me if you on the list if you want your Dash, as Others are wanting to place their orders.

Due to the shortage and difficulty of getting the raw stock, this will be the last run.

Herman

Retrovan Fri Jul 26, 2019 1:25 am

Next shipment of dash's going out on Monday,

Only have 4 window long, late model dash still in stock, (different air vent openings) Think its 70-71 not sure.

So if you need one, let me know before they all gone.

Next batch of orders started so PM me what you want.

Herman

Retrovan Sun Aug 18, 2019 5:02 am

If you are on the list and have not yet placed your order, please PM me and let me know if you still want.

This will be the last manufacture, and there will be no more made after these, due to my health.

So we will go onto 1st come 1st serve and if there is no more well I told you so.

Thanks for your support, and hope I did make a difference in your car.

Thanks for your inquiry.

Here are a few photo's of the two types of speaker holes

The early model has the full speaker section where as the later model has the center bar in the speaker section.

Not sure when the change happened, but sure the experts will fill in the date and or chassis number.

Thanks

Herman

Herman, I have just pm'd you re a RH dash. I am in Queensland. New member on here, I have just last week purchased a very rust free 1970 fastback, but tatty inside. I already have it stripped out, and (basically sound) floor being cleaned and painted. Engine and gearbox come out tomorrow for complete overhaul - But I need a dashboard !!
Hope you can add me to the list for one of your dashboards.
Cheers
Giles
