Morning all - 

Have long lusted after an innocenti dash for my car - the legitimate ones that periodically crop up are either knackered or more obviously designed for a LHD car so came across these on a browse....

Quite apart from the temptation to also buy speaker pod door pockets and a special style console too, I'm just mulling this over - anyone fitted one??? or got any views as to quality / ease of fit etc...... before I hit the credit card....

 

I've got a full set of working guages to fit ex MG / Triumph and a bulkhead blanking plate (currently got an oval binnacle fitted) the only potential issue in using I can foresee is ensuring the speedo drive / cable is matched to read correctly...

 

Was also thinking of using the vent holes for speakers as my car has never had the vents anyway......

 

Any views or reviews guys?

I wish they would make it 6 dials like the proper Innocenti item. Like you say the originals are often cracked, need repairing etc, and cost an arm and a leg even in that state. But to answer your question no I don't have any experience with them or even seen one fitted.

Speedycables will recalibrate your speedo to suit whatever you have.  Took six weeks though when I sent them mine!

That does look pretty good, especially for the price.

There is no point in fitting a genuine Inno dash into anything other than a LHD car. They look silly in a RHD one when the dials are all in front of the passenger! I once bought an Inno which had been converted to RHD, but I soon re-built it LHD so that it was original, had its proper value and looked right.
