Dashboard I

One of the last items to finish up before getting back to bodywork is the dashboard.  It's a metal dash and while it's in pretty good shape, it needs some work.

Here's what I have to start:

There's a crease along the bottom right of the dash that needs to be straightened out.  I did some metal work and then used "just a little" filler to smooth it all out.


Then, a once-over with a flexible sanding block and we're on our way.

I might have to wait until it's warmer to paint.  The dash is finished with a black wrinkle finish paint that needs heat to wrinkle properly.  It's "only" 65 degrees F here right now.  But I'm not complaining... it will nearly double that in 6 months.
