Mazda Dash in a 280z

Others might have seen this, but it's new for me.

I met a guy who adapted a Mazda Miata dash, console, and seats to his 280z. The seat swap I'd seen before, but not a dash. It looked factory.

He even adapted the Miata A/C.

any pics?
i've never heard of doing this, but I don't doubt it has been done. though i don't know why anyone would. im sure it takes alot of fabrication and modifications. there must have been something seriously wrong with his original dash.

I've heard of dashes from a 240SX being swapped in but not the Miata. At least the 240SX is/was Nissan.

Not my cup of tea in either case, especially with the new factory style dash covers available now.
