I got ya sorry I should of posted more pictures, I did flip the center of the dash over, and remolded it, mine is definietly not the Detail kit and YES you can do it your self.
Here are some more pics. Sorry I should of posted them but I was in a hurry.
First I had to make the metal retainer piece to hold the head unit and the HVAC controls, the Detail kit will not allow you to have the Roady controls, the mounts are different, hence why I made my own out of some sheet metal I had in my shop
Then I cut out the center of the dash around where the ridge is in it and flipped it over and filled it in
Then I glassed the whole mess in with a couple coats of Bondo, shot it with primer, and Krylon outdoor furniture texture paint at about a four foot distance to give it the textured look of the originalm then shot it with semi gloss black.
There you have it, it can be done.
without spending 200 bucks or whatever the detail kit is, just took a little time to accomplish. I molded the ashtray in at the same time as well
