Well, its time we offered a new inovative product for the Scout 800 guys out there.

Some may wonder why we built these, others will understand right off. As you know D and C was one of the first, and still has, the best Scout II Dash conversions on the market. However, as I'm a Scout 800 guy, I've always liked the round panels, but wish I could integrate a tack, some better LED indicators, and other things into my dash without hacking up the stock 'radio/speaker' area.

Sure you could simply order a set of aftermarket gauges..

and fit them into the stock panel.

But for those of you who want more....I offer this:

This new dash conversion updates the old dash in a few different ways. First, you can install new aftermarket gauges (Two 3 1/8" and Four 2 1/16"). Second, our conversion gives ample room for new indicator lights as well. There are 6 7/16" holes for anything you'd like to have an indicator for. We recommend 2 green (turn signals), 1 red (brake light), 1 Blue (High Beams), and 2 amber (orange, for 4x4, EFI, or whatever you'd like). Third, this system updates the look of your interior to Aluminum!

Realizing that 800s normally have color-matching guage panel and glove-box door, our system includes both!

Each kit comes with two panels. One for the guages, one for the glove-box door.

Cost per set: $120. Includes the two panels ONLY (no gauges).
Packages that include both panels with gauges and indicator lights : $550
Sorry, we will not sell just one panel.

Putting in some VDO Cockpit Royale gauges.

Way cool!
Do you have a stainless plug to fill any of the 7/16" holes that may not be used?

Thanks Roy. I'm very excited to get some installed pictures to post. In a little bit, the gauges actually came in as the wrong size so I'm waiting replacements.

As for your question. No I don't have plugs. Nor would I recomend using plugs.

I actually recommend putting the LED indicators in there even if they are not in use ~ not only does it give a completed look, but when you're ready to use them, they are there and ready.

The hinge and latch for the glovebox? Are you going to make it a complete swap setup?
I think having it set up for a direct swap would sell more of them. Very cool idea D.
Roy, use a bolt to seal off any led holes you dont use I guess. Or make a dummie LED and use it for a hidden start switch...?

Ooh, looks beefy, how thick is it?, I'd get a set but I don't have an 800 and the glove box looks a touch large for my 80.

Technically it could be a direct replacement. The stock glove-box door latch unbolts from the original, and will bolt into the new panel. The only thing you have to do is attach the hinge mechanism. Not sure exactly how I'll do that, either rivots or epoxy. Probably both ~ it'll sport a clean but rugged look.

You can do that, but I'd rather see an LED in there. Even if it does nothing but look pretty. I mean they are only $7 each.

They are beefy ~ 1/8" thick or was it 3/16? ;), but that's good 2x what you have now.

The gauges used were the VDO Cockpit Royal gauges. 2-1/16 and 3- 1/8 gauges. I have a set on mine but used a different dash Panel that I built and the gauges kit kicks butt. You cant beat the kit.

any 3/18 speedo/tach and 2 1/16" small gauges work. I've even opened them up for the 3 3/5 or 2 5/8 gauges. I recomend Autometer gauges ~ they have a bunch of Ht Rod kits.

I could give my old waterjet guy a call and see what it would cost to make a few more sets if there is enough interest.
