      Search for dashers they share the same dash. I remember the dash was in pretty bad shape

      You can strip and recover the dash for 1/2 the trouble of locating one. A1 chassis parts (Rabbits) won't fit because the cars are so different. Dasher and Audi Fox are the same in most aspects and I don't mind dropping you a line when I come across something...I would have lovede some help finding crap for my Fox.

      Look on thesamba.com but be patient because early stuff is there you just gotta look. I had a '74
      Audi Fox Coupe and kinda miss the hunt...but my '77 Rabbit keeps me on my toes. Might have a lead on a Fox sedan for parts....will let you know.

      I'm bringing this thread back to Life. The car is being delivered to me Tomorrow afternoon. It'll be back in Ohio. Cincinnati Area. Does anyone know off hand whether mk1 rabbit/golf/gti rocker panels may work on this for replacement pieces. i know they may be similar.
