    Gutted the interior

    Started the interior teardown today. Plulled the cluster and dash. Someone had already butchered the cluster before, 2 bent metal tabs screwed into the housing was all that was holding it in place!




    Took the front seats out and then removed the dash, a few rusty screws and it all came out.

    Dash is nice minus the big warp in the top, gonna work on that. It has no cracks or damage so I gotta save it!




    So the floorpans have been replaced on both sides, decent job but they never painted the floor. I had some leftover POR, so a good scuff and slap it on!

    The cooling fans were wired up to run all the time so a new thermo-switch from Jeg's and a little wiring and now they work properly



    Picked up 3 rolls of Peel & Seal from Lowes today. Start on that next weekend.

    Happy New Years guys!

    Looks good Harbone. I'm sure it will look as good or better than your last few rides, and they were all sweet. 8)

    You like those? The white one is actually pretty old, found it in a storage room at a Dodge store I used to work at. I got about 5 of the black ones, intended to build a bar but put in a pool table instead.

    'Bone, You're one of those typical hotrodders that just can't leave ANYthing alone for one single second ! :P :P :P :P

    Looks like you found some 'shortcuts' from previous owners !
    I hope the drive train is in better condition

    It's always the stuff you can't see that can bite ya !

    So are those stock or modified OEM bar stools ?
    TRUTH is HATE
    to those who
    HATE TRUTH

    Them barstools are stock!
    I dont have to worry about the drivetrain, previous owner knows what he was doing in that department. He gave me plenty of receipts and a ton of photos he took while putting the motor together. I already scored a cluster housing with all the tabs intact from a guy. I just have to get the heat gun out and some patience to straighten out the dash warp. The paint and the engine compartment are beautiful so I had to do something with the interior. Thats one thing about living in Illinois, January through March is the best time to work on the warm weather toys

    Busy week at work and woop ars tired but I did a little work when I got home. Picked up some valve covers this week, GM Performance with holes and baffles so I can hook up a PCV hose. Plus they look good and almost match the car color of the car perfectly. Heres a pic of the valve covers that were on it, TIG welded drag race parts.


    Here is the new ones.




    It looks a whole lot better! Gonna start putting down the sound barrier tomorrow on the floor boards...
