Post Kustomsledd dash is primed, Page 7 is up.

Just thought everyone who is following my buildup of the 'sledd would like to see the dash all done in finish primer.

HK, after letting the primer dry overnight, I re-shot the whole thing a couple times over during the course of today, and all the filler spots eventually blended in, with no 'ghosting' of the filler outline appearing. I'm using Krylon sandable rattlecan primer, sort of a medium gray shade. I warm the can by running it under the sink water, adjusted as hot as I can stand to keep my hands under it, for about 5 minutes, with another 2 minutes thorough shaking of the can right before spraying.

I guess I need to not be in so much of a hurry to get things primed, and give the spots over the filled areas a full day to dry before shooting the final coats of primer...

Anyways, the pics are on <a href="http://www.angelfire.com/extreme3/drchop/kustom7.html" target="_blank">Page 7</a> of my website. Here's a teaser shot...

I like it simplicity, finally someone who doesn't have to have a guage for everything. Looks good.

Guys, this is for the Kustomsledd on my website, the bodydragging '54 Ford Customline with 472/TH-400 I swapped in. Air ride, flamethrowing custom taillights, tilt nose, etc, etc.

What do ya expect, I got the car for nothing, just promised the kid who gave it to me it'd stay out of the boneyard...

Took a bunch of work to get it that smooth... all the switches and controls are going in the trans tunnel console to be easy to reach.

With the chop and channeling trhe car has, ya can't reach the dash anyways with the 'lawn recliner' driving position...

Doc, don't feel to bad, I get all stoked up to get things primerd too. Primer is just one of those big steps that when you reach it you can say "ahhhhh, finally" After a while it gets old and cheap, but its still one of those things that make you feel like you may actually finish the thing.

Looks good. But with a chop like that like you said you won't be huggin the dash. You'll be in the lazyboy position

I have just took a tour of your website...very impressive !!!!!!!
I like to see people doing the work themselves.
As far as youe "Lawn Chair Driving Position" I can identify with that.My Hot Rod I am building measures 42" in from ground to top.And I am 6' 4" weigh 225.this makes for a reclining driving position also......But once I get in the seat I have quite a bit of headroom..The Windshield measures 36" tall ..with only a 12" view..You might say this is "raked"
You can view my progress on my site at.

meanmachine, stripes are cheap, nobody really wants em, I'll usually try to get $60-80 for an average size nose and deck combo...if the customer wants somethin really big or some interior stripes its usually no more than $100, but if they only want a little it usually only costs a little...I guess what I'm tryin to say is that it depends...
