Lightbulb How to Customise a Dashboard from Stock to Wood Panel

2002 Chevy 3500 Short Bus

Can some pls offer some design(s) or pics to help remove the stock dash and replace it with a wood panel/board and design for the interior engine cover doghouse)?

May wanna see if anyone in the van world can help you. Pulling the dash on a bus is no fun. Even less fun on a van!
Maybe look into custom molded fiberglass or something.

Thank you just looking to use wood and build a face to mount dash instruments panel from the bus to make room to cut the passenger portion plastic dash off to build shelving and storage or whatever.

We have a current thread by a member who just did a full custom wood dash replacement that is exquisite. Check it out for ideas.
