    its a TRAP!.... Miata custom dash

    This is from Motohiro Murase of Trap FRP Works, I thought I would share as some of you guys running the Pitcrew cars might want something to match the exterior of your vintage looking rides.

    Here is the fabricated panel, and alignment of the gauges in a linear fashion





    Test fit of the panel , with each air outlet, air conditioning , crash pad , and center panel





    fabricated with FRP and bonded with the OEM meter hood





    Change the layout of the wires for each meter movement

    Nice. Reminds me a little of the Nakamae console I have. The dash insert I have is a custom job by Trap. They are good parts.

    I have been watching this (unaware it was a TRAP item), but being RHD put me off of bidding. Glad to see it ending in good hands Patrick!

    @HarryB I was the only bidder. So a good deal, even though it is RHD. Might be able to mirror it, by making a different front. Or, keep it as is and get a RHD dash/car.
