The one mold that we didn't have for a 904 was the inside
structure which retains the gauges behind the dash. Now that
the mold has been made and the dash is repaired, Jack is gluing
the dash in with epoxy cabosil. Remember, when you are just
using cabosil to join two parts, epoxy is a little stronger
and stones...that's what we use to keep parts in place while

of the dash because it still retains the original paint and
build number. The car was delivered in signal red but most
of 090's racing history was when the car was painted silver.

are the two seams that connect the dash to the "A"
pillar. Normally, cabosil is the only bonding between the
two panels. We use epoxy cabosil and a couple layers of glass.
This makes the mounting of the dashboard more structural to
the car. It might add some safety too. The dash cover will
naturally cover all of these areas.
