The boys checking out my work.  Tough judges.


Great pic!  And probably no one better to give an honest opinion than your boys.

:iagree:
Great finish! Almost a shame to cover your work with a great big decal.

Way behind on updates.  Here goes...first, my attempt at repairing my dash.  Not completely happy, but think it will do for now.  Some day I'll get it redone by just dashes or somewhere else, need to be mindful of cash.

Before


Product used to help create the coachman grain, together with plastic epoxy


First application


Before applying SEM TRIM BLACK

Seat frames, blasted, epoxied, painted black...







Frames are now off at the upholsterer's getting all rebuilt, legendary skins.  Can't wait to have them back.

Had the upholsterer here to help me with the headliner.  So so happy with how it came out, this guy (chad noakes) really knows his stuff.  C1 upholstery in Lambeth Ontario, check out his site - http://www.c1custom.com.

These pictures don't do it justice, need a better camera and lighting.

Heater box completely rebuilt with DMT kit and new heater core.

Before, including broken off stud for fan motor mount.










Forgive the long screws going through the box seam, somewhere along the cars life the heater core went and someone did a cheap/fast repair.  Anyway, I just put them back in as the holes were already there, not needed.
