We've got the switches installed and the hole cut for the Vintage Air control panel in the dash extension that we fabricated.
We've welded up the holes where the old radio was.
Now we'll need to do some grinding to smooth everything up and get the dash ready to paint.
Cusey sent us some samples that he'll be using on the interior of the truck. We think the color combination is just right. Well, maybe camouflage would be better but this'll work too.
Here we trial fit the gauge panel along with the Classic Instruments gauges.
The dash extender we built is fitted for the Vintage Air Controller.
Now we're smoothing the dash where we welded and fitted everything.
Here's the dash after some smoothing.
A small "imperfection" in the front right fender is repaired.
The dash extender is now over in the paint shop.
The dash is primered and ready for painting.
Here's where we fixed the fender.
Before painting the dash, we completely cover the vehicle to make sure no overspray finds it's way on the paint.
The dash and extension are painted.
Now it's untaped and ready for reassembly.
Now it's starting to come back together. The new gauge panel is in and the dash extender is also in along with all the various switches.
Here's how the Vintage control panel looks installed in the dash extender.
The steering column is back in and the new steering wheel is on.
The windshield is back in and it's almost ready to go to the upholsterer.
