Thanks. I'm very happy with the way the dash turned out. It originally looked hideous. It was full of cracks. To hard to find a good one,so I fixed it bodyman style. I chamfered all the cracks with a razor & filled them in with cheese(body filler),filled in the vents.block sand & several thick coats of polyester primer. I'll see if I can find some pics of the dash project,help people transform their cracked dashboards

+1 on the dash, very well done.

Have you considered completing the cage while you have it apart? Easier now than later.

Thanks everyone, I appreciate all the compliments. I have thought about welding front bars to make a full cage. I'm going to leave it for now. Focus on getting it back on the road. The aluminum T handle is for a battery cut out switch.
I'll post some pics of consol when I'm done. Lots of fun

Right on,trying to keep it as light as possible. I'm going to pack as much punch as I can into a naturally aspirated motor. I'm gonna start building motor when the snow starts falling.very soon up here. Door panels not finished yet

Please, please, pleasssse provide details on that dash repair.

Freakin' awesome. Can it be painted any color, or is that aluminium (or aluminum) look part of the process?

Also, noticed you filled in all the vents. Is that required for this approach, or you just chose to do it that way?

Thanks,it burns my *ss when people say you can't get any power with a naturally aspirated motor. In spite of that,I know there's plenty of power to make with na motor. For the short block-bored & steel sleeved,knife edge crank,forged rods,JE forged pistons(higher comp),stage 2 port & polish by Lindsey r,wide fire gasket,#274 web cam shaft,1 piece header,2.5" exhaust with electric dump,lightend flywheel & balance shafts,alum crank & alt underdrive pulleys,fuel rail & so on. If it doesn't feel fast,I'll give it some laugh gas(nos),he he. Start out with 50hp jet. Car's gonna be fully lightend. I'll look for some pics of dash project. I filled in the vents cause its easier. Plus I don't need them. I post more pics as move along. Cheers
Forgot to mention,you can paint the dash any color. Bright color wont get hot & give off heat under glass. It's an aluminum plate in center with gauges.
