Argenta UPDATE: Exploring a different option for the rear center grill...instead of fixing the fiberglass like I posted before.
I am going to go speak to someone about having a piece of 508MM width x165.1mm height x18mm thick sheet aluminum. Then having them router out the valleys and space for my Pegasus...so he sits flush with the raised lines. Then powder coat it black and apply the 3M RED CONSPICUITY REFLECTIVE TAPE in the valleys. Cheaper, faster to produce, and it will be perfect the 1st time!

ReMera UPDATE: Received my new G1 dash from Rob...everything looks amazing...except one thing...that is not RAVE Butterscotch (RAV-2612) based on the sample he sent me . Not sure how I am going to address this yet...I have a PM into Rob and waiting for a response.
I also received the replacement Cowling from PISA:

ReMera UPDATES: G1 dash WRONG COLOR issue figured out. It looks like the fowl start at Rob's supplier.
Here are the labels of the 4 color samples Rob's supplier sent me:
This is the color sample I wanted:
Well after some emails and some digging...this is what happened. The color that I like was mis-labeled...it is actually "Rave-2613-Turmeric"...now interesting how one of the other samples was "Nuance Tumeric - NUA-2467".
Think Rob's supplier was smoking some of the Green stuff that day!
Now there is even a 2nd half to this story already. Another member on the forum ( within 90 minutes of me), who purchased one of the only none upholstered G1 Dashes really likes how this one turned out. He has offered to swap and pay the difference I paid for the upholstery. Guess Rob and his supplier will have to duke it out over the 2 extra shipping costs!
how are you attaching the window switches to the back of the panel ?
Would you mind posting a picture of it ?
Thanks in advance
85LAMB...this one easy thanks to faster assembly-line techniques...they snap in
Yellow circle is the pressure snap. Red Circles are where I need to back fill and sand. So I pop out all three...back fill, let dry, sand smooth. Once everything is correct and smooth...I will do a very complete alcohol cleaning and then re-wrap it the panel in Carbon Fiber & Pop the switches back into place. Then connect up the wires and put it in place.

Issue Resolved,,,Fellow member is shipping his raw G1 dash and a replacement center armrest to Rob Amida tomorrow and Paypaling him the difference for the upholstery. Once Rob has received both and given me the two thumbs up...then Brian will come down and pickup his brand new...ready to install G1 Dash!
Stopped Mr. Mike before he cut the 4 yards of the wrong material (well wrong for me...but perfect for Brian now!)...if Brian doesn't want it...then I will eat the cost and have 4 yards of this material. Mike ordered the correct material and it should be here next week and he will pickup where he left off...which means the seats will probably be completed 1st now. Stay tuned more more updates and the Correct color on my new (new) G1 dash
