I took the original dash out of the car and decided to make good use of it. I welded some 18 gauge on the back and sliced the ends to make it fit. A couple of tabs welded on and a couple of bolts and presto, it looks like it belongs.

Finished off the bottom of the rad shell, got it covered in total solids just a bit more touch up and it should be ready for paint.

10-20-2008 06:41 AM Apart for the Last Time
Pulled the body off the chassis for the final body work, I don't know how many times I've done this, seems way too many. Made a stand out of some steel I had kicking around so you can rotate it easily with a hydraulic jack. Lifted it a total of 3 feet off the ground so you don't have to lean over as much, might as well save the back when you can.

Body is moving along quickly. We have the top part of the cowl finished, the back upper cab corners and 90 percent of the roof done. Still trying hard to get ready for paint for the end of this month.
