I lost my photos posted when IRV2 lost the photos few months back.
Just got around to posting them again for the Sunrise dash upgrade.
Sure gives the dash area a warmer feel to it.

I used real Oak wood.

Thank you for your comment.

Yes I did glue the long piece to the dash and left the clamps on 24hrs.

It looks great! So good in fact that you inspired me to do the same thing, though I didn't use real oak, I used the cheap stuff from local lumber store, it was easy to cut and glue though, and it matched the rest of the woodwork in our Sunrise perfectly, of which there is very little "real" wood in either. Anyway thanks for the idea, we've gotten lots of nice comments from our friends on the new look of our dash area!

Bob,
Did you build the console? I have considered building one for our Sunrise also as I got used to having one in our previous Suncruiser?

Did you use the original mount for the pygmy one that Winnie provided?

Looks good to me. The wife doesn't want me to cover over the Sunrise embossed into the dash.

Thanks everyone for the nice comments.

DSouthw524, I built the console using Weyerhaeuser "ChoiceWood" Oak " thick, available in stock in widths of 1", 2", 3", 5" and 7". I assembled it using small finishing nails and drilling the nail holes first with a slightly smaller drill than the nail. Fastened it to the motor hood with three screws, I attached a strip of metal to the bottom of the box that can be accessed inside the console.

Had to hollow out the backside of the chair rail a little to cover up the Sunrise logo. I thought my wife Pat could paint the Sunrise Logo on a brass plate and mount it to the oak but we decided against that thinking it looks good plain. The chair rail is 3" wide x 5/8" thick at its thickest point.

Bob
