I had to make all new panels as I did not have the originals. Pretty happy with fitment of the new panels. Took a couple of goes to cut them out.

With regards to the centre dash lights, the first series 124 Spider did not have them, only switches.
Original manual below:

Another big difference (interior) compared to later models is the heater controls on the dash instead of on the centre console. The 66-67 model does not have a centre floor console.

To recover dash here in Australia was over $600aus.

Hi Mark, I will wait to finish the car and see how it sits before modifying the springs. These are the originals.

Merry Christmas
