    Starting on the Dash

    My build progress for the summer has been frustratingly slow. With my boys out of school for the summer we have been doing a lot of family stuff which is great but I have also been stupid busy at work. They started back to school today so my shop time should increase!

    I have struggled with my mental concept of the dash, both the gauge layout and the appearance. Hot Rod or "Rat Rod" dashes appeal to me much more than the standard Cobra dash. I like the brushed metal and rivet look. Also, I am a new Powder coat convert. I ordered a blank dash from FFR and fabricated some mounting tabs, powder coated them, and installed them. I also made some lower support braces which I plan to powder coat, of course.

    Here's the initial dash install, the final with have all the bolts with the same heads.

    Still enjoying the build overall but not feeling close to heaven yet...

    Sometimes I wish I could take a month off of work and and build, but then I realize I really can't afford another divorce
