407 dashboard swap into 406

Post by sdlghhn » Fri Mar 30, 2018 11:13 pm

Hi!

I was just wondering if the full 407 dashboard with middle section, gauges... can be fitted into the 406?
Any maniacs tried? :D

I would agree - unless you have a degree in digital electronics.

Although a member on the Coupe club fitted the dial faces from a 607 into his 406 - but they are slightly larger, hard to tell by eye, so they were trimmed to suit.
407 cluster into a 406 is not a straight swap by any means, sorry
