Dash Done

I've been quiet on the Midget front for a few weeks, but I did manage to squeeze in finishing up the dashboard.

I had ordered some wrinkle finish paint from Eastwood (as that's what I used last time) and it took them a month to decide it was no longer available.  So I went with the Rustoleum version that I had bought and rejected as 'too wrinkly'.  It appears that it was just operator error, as I repainted the radio console with it and it looks pretty darned good.

So I painted the dash, and it came out great!  This isn't the best picture, but you see what I mean...

I really like the way the green (that's Hunter Green) highlights the instrument cluster.  It's gonna look awesome in the car.

Now, I just need the car to look awesome...
