  • Test fit the dashboard and starting to install some gauges. Dash is a new rosewood one from Carl Visser. Took the gauge faces off, cleaned and resealed them. Amazing how foggy the glass had gotten over the years. Few pics of the dash progress!

    • Here's some outstanding wiring that was lurking up under the dash. Did the final extraction of the old harness in prep for installing the new. Knew it was bad up under there, but pretty shocking when you see it all spread out. Earlier ignition switch hacked in, splices on the ignition wires higher up in the harness, harness all unwrapped....what a mess! How it didn't burst into flames is a mystery!

        • Haven't updated in awhile. All crash pads have been replaced and guts are back in the doors along with seals etc. All cables are back into the center console. Windshield frame is going on now so I can get windows and frame all aligned. Progress slower then hoped with the temps being what they are in Phoenix during the summer, but making progress! Here are some recent pics

              For just a little more, you can do it yourself!

              • Thanks guys...appreciate the encouragement! Can't wait until the heat breaks here and it's a little more comfortable in the garage. Want this thing done! Or at least as done as done will ever be.

                • If only he had thumbs....might be a little more help stripping the center dash support for recovering.

                      He's a Blue Heeler (Australian Cattle Dog).

                      • Got the passenger side heater vent hoses all in along with glove box. Center gauges are all wired and dash is just set in right now, but starting to look like something. Not a great pic, but you get the idea!

                        • Rear bumper all finished and re-installed including some NOS over-riders. Finishing dash off is next and I should be pretty close to firing it up.

                              Get those little switches in before the MPH & RPM so you can push the Lucar connectors on in the right place. Double check all the wire positions before the air ducts limit access. The hazard switch is a mess of wires. Dash wood looks good.

                          • Great progress, looks very nice!

                            • Thanks. Plan to get everything else in and leave the left side vent hoses until last before buttoning it up. Dash is a Carl Vissar rosewood. Plan to start working on getting the center transmission tunnel (plastic one) fitted and all of that sorted out next. Not too far away from firing it!
