These will spoil the NCRS vibe you have going, but are closer to what I remembered seeing.










Someone is selling fiberglass repops of John Greenwood’s dash.

I like that upper one a lot, but I think Optima makes me keep the stock dash.... I'm going to have to review the rules again...

Foretaste of the Buick wagon that's coming next




cut hole, remove undercoatingedited


remove metal from flange

spray with weld-through primer first to mark the edges


eventually I'll weld this on both sides, but this is a start



and finally another project in the wings

initially I was/may weld this - but the cap retainer would need another solution

Finish up the floor detour


a few notes.editededited
1) the floor is going to get the ceramic coating that the FJ40 got - it's 1/4" thick so those seams disappear as does the rust pits on the other side
2) underneath it gets undercoating so the patch will fully disappear (like it did on the '40)
3) FOR THE LOVE ALL THAT IS HOLY STOP BLOCKING WINDOW CHANNELS WITH ADHESIVE WHEN YOU HAVE A LEAK... damn fools, GM designed the windshield system to allow the water to run under the molding then away from the car.edited The molding keeps water from being driven into the windshield frame.edited This car had a leak, and they plumb filled up the channels with window adhesive.... the leak is in the valley (below the window) .... just remember this, if I see you, Bubba, doing this I pray for your eternal soul to be damned to a hell where you do nothing but try to weld up pinholes, naked, and over your head, with your cheeks glued together window adhesive.edited Prayer works, so you are now on notice there is an 11th commandment.

onto cleaning the body so I can complete the color change



and rebuild the rear floor... I think I'm simply going to raise it to clear.... there's little reason to give it huge luggage space and it's far easier to just bond it back 2" higher.
