Definitely subbed to this. Great work so far!
Well I got some progress pictures
I cut up some plywood strips at a 22 1/2 degree angle and after alot of scribing and fitting, heres the result!
I also screwed in some rails to prevent the monitor bezel and the pedal panel from moving. I still want to box in the shifter on the left side and the bottom. Then I think I am about ready to break it all down for painting and applying the diamond plate for the base. I also have to find the tail lights that I bought long ago for this project and get those cut in on the backside of the cabinet.
For paint, I bought a couple cans of 'Hemi' orange engine paint. I am going for a Dukes of Hazzard theme with the 01 on the sides and some racing stripes on the front, top, and back of the cabinet. I also bought some additional t-moulding to wrap the edges of the right side panel of the cabinet. I'm going to have to buy another can of black paint for the inside.
I've still got quite a ways to go but it coming along. I like the old dash better, with the gauges and all, but since I had to go around the wheel housing, there isn't as much room on the new one. I might just leave this one plain, or I might not. I will have to think about it-
Happy New Year and be safe tonight Edited by bob808 - 12/31/10 at 10:24pm
