Works Dash Mounting, Anyone know how to mount them? (1 reply)

I just received a set of works dashes for my LEFT-hand drive MK1 from a company in UK and looks like they are wrong.

The Drivers side dash they sent me has a 1'' flange. I was told (by the company) it mounts to the bottom of the parcel shelf. If that is the case, should that be a 1.9'' flange just like the navigator's side? When I try to mount this dash, putting the flange on the bottom, there is a 1' gap between the bottom of the flange and the top of the parcel shelf. It would make more sense if the dash mounted from the top, as the top rail is only 1'' deep (so the 1' flange would fit right in). I think that the driver side dash mounts to the top of dash and they sent me the wrong side - what do you guys think?

Also the navigators side has the wrong angle on it to line up with the door post (looks like they started making it for a left hand drive car, but bent the one side as if it were a right handed car...)

I just want other opinions as they are telling me I am wrong and I can't figure out how what they are saying is correct.

Thanks guys.
