Does anyone know of the availability of a full dash kit. The wood trim is already installed on my MH, but what I''m looking for is a full mask to cover the total dash. I have seen these kits for other vehicles. How about for MHs??

Update, I have the Console Box with lid cut out, it has cup holders with tray behind them.
The other Dash Tray Box will set on the dash between the workstation and the instrument panel. The pieces are just standing against each other in place to see how the proportions look.
Next step is to finish sanding, glue together, stain, polyurethane and hinge the lid on the Console.

I used " thick oak, 2 pcs 7" x 3' long, 1 pc 7" x 4' long, and 2 pcs 2" x 4' long, cost $46.00
The chair rail cost $20.00

I'll post pictures when finished.

Stained, polyurethaned, and installed, it even feels warmer now.

The lid of the box doubles as a end table at this height between the pilot and copilot chairs when they are turned around to the living area. Just one more oak addition to make 1" x 2'-0" x " thick flat piece of oak to glue on the front of the work station, went down to the lumber yard and picked a piece up the exact size, no cutting necessary, just sanded and stained it tonight. Will polyurethane it Saturday and glue it on. I'll take a picture when finished and post it Monday or Tuesday.

Picked up the motorhome from storage about 2:30pm exercising the generator for a couple hours and the furnace heated up the motorhome to 68 in about a hour and a half it was 27 degrees when I started you can see the windshield steamed up in the photos.

Lots of toys, lots of projects, good thing I retired.

This is it, absolutely, the final piece of oak I should add to the dash area, here at the Work Station. What is the line in that movie I remember the tv ads for "SOMEBODY STOP ME". I must stop before I end up framing the windshield in oak.........

"Just because you can, doesn't mean you should".

I did not glue the boxes together I ended up clamping them together pre-drilling the oak and using 3d finishing nails 1" long, countersinking them and using a stainable wood filler from Minwax, looks pretty good you can hardly see the filler after the stain was applied. Gluing and clamping did not work for me, I could not get everything squared up in time for the glue to hold. If I had "Norm's" shop with his tools glue would have worked. Hardwoods, like oak it seems, is very difficult to glue so I did it the old fashioned way with nails. Had to re-sand everything to get the glue off.

If you are in the mood for more modifications...
The cup holder on the passenger side can be used much better...
We took the whole thing out, made a box that fits on the floor and is wide enough for maps, standing up soldier style.It is long enough to put in a divider for books like the road atlas(with the walmart locations) and we put the cupholder back on top of it all. The electical outlets were relocated to the outside of the box. I love having a handy place for all the maps we have on board for a long trip and a quick access place for Coast to Coast and Pasport America books ( and the walmart info).

Thank you Ellen, for the suggestion, I was thinking about maps and the big Walmart road atlas book that just lays on the floor behind the "dog house" as we travel.

Can you post a picture of yours?

That's a very nice job, Bob&Pat. You gave me an idea as to where to mount my CB as it is just laying on the dash next to the window directly above where you mounted yours.See you all at the "Rally" in Daytona next April!

For the instrument panel, how about using a piece of laminate flooring. Available in many finishes and comes in four foot length and about 7 inches wide. Depending on the size of your instrument panel this might be an answer...with some skills with a jigsaw.

Thank You for the very nice comment bobpie.

I had the CB installed in Port Huron Michigan, the CB wires were in that corner and it looked like the best place. The installer just used (2) two self tapping sheet metal screws for the bracket it took him about twenty minutes to install and adjust the antenna for SWR, he charged $25.00 labor.
