And finally, I am restoring the dash pad. It was in pretty good shape when I received it, but It was in need of some repair. So I removed all the old vinyl, and cut the pad into 4 pieces because it shrunk nearly 3/4" with age. I used original gorilla glue to expand and fill the 1/4" gap and it did really really well. I used my dremel and sanded it down then covered it with 1/8" high density closed cell foam. I have to cover it with vinyl still. But here it is right now.

Well Some of you may have noticed my post in the wanted section for an 86+ dash pad... Between the cats clawing at it (I dont know why they are infatuated with clawing foam, any foam), and my 3 and 5 year old, it ended up in a lot of pieces...


SO for now I am without a dash pad.


On the up side, I have my center seat, and drivers seat bolted back in and I reworked all the dash wiring. It is no longer a rats nest. Little more trimming on the carpet on the passenger side and it will be complete.


Then to make a new heater box and reinstall the factory heater under the dash and plumb the turbo to the intake and make an air box.


I will keep everyone updated with pics as I get them done.
