      Corrado dash....Ya this was a bit of work (at least for me), the main things are (if I were to do it again), get as much out of a donor corrado as possible, you will need a cluster form an early corrado or passat(preferably 16v) with a cable speedo input. Also i sent alot of time making filler panels where the corrado body differed from the rocco.

      you will also need to make a choice, either cut and narrow the dash, or get ready to trim and slim down the door panels since the dash is a little longer, I did the panels.

      the switches are not hard to put over, and the heater controls (on non ac at east) fit right in to place from the rocco, also dome duct work will need to be done.

      Get the lower parcel trays from the euro corrado non ac models, it looks better. There is a few more fine points but I guess you get the idea.

      I installed miine without cutting or breaking any of the oem dash mounts, so I can always put the old one back, my oem dash was mint, I just wanted to have somehting different at the time.
      The center console can be fitted as well but will also need some massaging.

      I did it back in the days pre digital camera, so I will try and dig up some pics and scan them.

      thanks for the interest!

      found some pics and scanned them.....
      old dash, still mint!


      ok out with the dash


      Trim and fit ....



      final result



      Issue was more the doors..

      first trim the panels and made fiberglass inserts to mimic the corrado silouhette, then epoxy them in.ake the shape for the dash as well as the parcel trays



      then I used a combination of epoxy and bumper putty to mold the new lower part I made from 1/4 inch particle board



      then I wrapped the entire door in new vinyl



      final product



      and one old show pic just for fun!! Back in the early '90s, I found a ton of show pics, thank god it takes a while to scan them all, otherwise this thread would be overloaded!!

      small update, so far I have actually been able to drive the car and enjoy it, but I am itching to get more stuff done. I had to get the car paraised for the insurance company , otherwise I would be without insurance .

      I also found my car seems to idle and run alot smoother with the silicone pcv hose, I guess the old one was really shot!

      I have this little teaser, hopefully will be sooner than later....



      and I got some other bits and pats to refresh the new seats!

      Jeff,

      The work you did on those door panels looks great. I can't wait to see the covers installed!

      The tail lights look amazing. I need to do the same on my MK4 headlights.

      Thanks, I had no choice if I wanted to get the doors to close again with the corrado dash, they were one of my first custome door panels, pics are from about '95, however I will be redoing the covering on them to match the seats, so a nice set of stitched door panels will be great!

      Also going to mold a corrado and a audi TT center console, and misc TT corrado bits to finish the interior, hopefully it will turn out ok.

      Thanks, I like the centers but have decided to get another design done, so I am going to be delayed a week or so with the seats , but I hope the wait and change will pay off.

      So I am going to put up the old oem covers, and these center sections with extra black fabric to do rears and door panel inserts.

      Thanks!

      Progress lately has slowed since I have actually been driving it! Yeay!

      Unfortunately the time has come this week-end to put her away for the winter, so the fun will begin once more!

      Some powder coating, some new parts, retro med and improved interior, etc (can't spill all the beans!).

      Oh and access to a newly installed lift! Oh yeah!
