Great posts. You are doing a good job. I am wanting to see how the cracks in the dash turn out. I will have to do mine after rebuilding the engine. Thanks for posting.

Don't forget to bring the rear wheel plastic trims to the paint shop if you want them the same color than the body!

Dash close-up. Not perfect, but close and sealed for good

. Iíve done more fiberglass and sanding before but lost the original texture. This time zero sanding and turned out better IMO. Just had to be careful with the fiv tglsss!

New carpet out of the box and resting for a few hours. Big difference from old to new with the backing and additional sound proofing and heat resistance I opted for.

Thanks, but these will stay black to keep with the Factory original theme. They and the bumper corners will get a coat of fresh back paint prior to reinstall.

Carpet is cut based on the pattern of the old carpet. Man that is a painful job! For holes, I used a step but in my drill which made them much easier than a carpet knife.


But cutting through the sound proofing is not fun.
