Engine turned panel "saves" BMW console!

January 24, 2010
I was able to use the panel to repair a damaged (plastic) console on a BMW M-Roadster. A new console costs $2100.00 (last time I looked) so you can imagine how happy my customer was when I only charged him for your material [...]. Whenever I do an "experimental" repair for the first time, as was this case, I donate my labor at no charge (took me two hours). Excellent results[@]
Pros:
  • Easy to cuttrim
  • Genuine time saver
  • Looks Authentic
Yes, I recommend this product.

How much twist and bend can these withstand? How much twist and bend can these panels withstand? I have your T-Bucket recessed dash and would love to place engine-turned aluminum in the recessed area, but the fiberglass at this section is not perfectly flat. Emblem adhesive would secure the panels as well as the gauges, but they'll need to flex some what to be right.

Pretty stiff. I would not count on any flex

Should be able to make reasonable bends, I used mine as 3 pieces on a 64 Falcon dash and the end panel had to be bent and curved with no problem. The dash looks great, too bad Henry didn't think of it. He used it on the 54 Ford and the Thunderbird dashes.

These are made of aluminum. An experienced sheet metal fabricator could shape these to match most any dash. The trick will be to not damage the finish while shaping it.
