[Healeys] Early Two Piece Dash

Michael, Alan ...,

From the concours guidelines,
Early fascias were of a two-piece design, with the raised instrument cluster a second piece that could be removed to get access to the back of the instruments. A black plastic welting, similar to the welting used between bumpers and over riders (but taller) was used between the instrument pod and main fascia panel. When installing, this welting must be carefully trimmed on the inside to clear the mounting lugs. The black plastic welting is spliced directly above the steering column. 

I've seen pictures somewhere but can't seem to find them.

Best regards,
BN2 with one piece fascia.

>> Well my question is what was used between the instrument pod and the dash panel, or was anything at all used.  I have been told it was just screwed directly to the dash panel and I have also heard it had a plastic/vinyl protective strip kind of like the stuff that goes between the bumper and the overriders.  I have looked in Austin Healey 100 in Detail and Roger Moments restoration guide.  They both say what car s had the two piece dash, but go into no detail.  Anyone have one of these really early cars can tell me before I mar the paint on the dash panel?
