CJ5 dash help

I recently purchased a 1955 CJ5 and the dash panel has been drilled, hacked, abused, messed with, distorted, punched, welded on,... and anything else you can think of.

1. Does anyone know if there is a company that makes a new metal Dash panel for the early CJ5?

2. Does anyone have a good picture of an original dash on a 55 or other year early CJ5 to show me what it should look like before having all of the above done to it?

Thanks!

Seems like he does pretty nice work, but I was thinking of having a totally stock one.


I guess I can have a totally stock one made though.

He basically made a totally stock one for me and the quality and price was great. You can't go wrong assuming he has the cad info for your year. Email him.
