The workshop at Bridge Classic Cars have been working on reworking and finishing the dashboard on the 1979 Arrow Ferrari Daytona in preparation for getting the switchgear test fitted.

The team have been remoulding parts of the dashboard and structure to make it as close to an original Daytona as possible, using reference photos Scott has been laying new layers of fibreglass in different areas to recreate the original shape.

After that, he could then begin to do the bodywork preparations on the dash to smooth out areas and joins in the panel which included glassing over new mounting bolts to fix it into the structure behind the piece securely. After that, the new openings for some of the switchgear could be cut and test fitted into the interior, again using reference photos to scale the spacings between each piece.
