Hi. I noticed your  engine start up vid and the comment about it being an S7? You really need to know before swapping the dash unit. A 2B ( not B2) has a tubular structure ( as in tubey). The S7 is made from a folded flat sheet of steel to make a monocoque. From the little I can see in the video it looks like a 2B.

I do not have tubular chassis so take it I have a S7.  

Is the B2 better than the S7?

I've got an S7 and am very happy with it. It's an older design but I'd just be happy with what you have. Pros and cons with both.

from your video it looks like a S7 but it could be a B2 cos i have never heard of that now if it was a 2B then i used to own one and it dont look like that

The 2B dash will be too big I’m afraid. (2B 2 B(ig))  sorry about that. 
look at the identification link sent.

Looks like an early S7 judging by what I can see of front suspension and the "chassis rails".

2B dash would be a straight fit but I am pretty sure could be made to work.  You won't get anything off the shelf that fits and unlikely to get help from GBS as they try to distance themselves from these models of roboin hood.
