Chris. what did you use to clean the already dyed dash before re-dying it with the sem. My 79 Elky was dyed (when new) in 1988 and is now sun faded. the rest of my interior,seats, door panels and carpet are cloth/nylon, sun faded. I'm going to try to use the interior paint on them. The door panels are not sun faded so i have a color match to work with.

Zip.

Zip if its just faded and not peeling off just scrub it down good with some enamel reducer, I rubbed mine down about 3 different times just to be safe. Apply the dye in real light coats. I put about 6 coats of black and then applied about 3 coats of the clear. I am still amazed at how everything turned out!

Long week, got home and pulled the car in the main garage. Changed the oil, replaced the spark plugs and installed my radiator overflow bottle


Wish I would have taken some pics of the console before I started dying it. It was blue, had a few spots that needed repair vinyl, a 3M vinyl repair kit worked great. Used some Gorilla Glue to fix the cracked plastic at the rear of the console. That stuff works great! I have a rebuilt stock slap shifter coming and a new GM shifter bezel.





Hopefully the rest of my shifter parts, console bucket and lid show up this week.

Thanks Ron!
In Illinois theres not much to do over the winter months but work on my car. Been at it the last 7 out of 8 weekends. I have been ebaying a bunch of my buddies Harley and car parts the last couple of months and made enough money to pretty much pay for all the parts I have purchased so far. The labor I enjoy and I like seeing the final results. Hopefully all the rest of my console and shifter parts will get here this week. The next big purchase is new seat upholstery. Cant wait to take her out on the first test drive soon!
