This is after I put the bondo over most of the dash. I am doing this with only the fleece being the only fiberglass laid down right now to smooth everything out before I put the last two layers of glass down. it was near impossible for my to creat a perfectly round fiberglass piece for the passengers dash side and a few other parts so I used bondo to round it out before I finish it up with a few more layers of glass.

In the photo above I have placed it in the truck after being sanded from what you see above. I also used my rotozip to route out all of the ac vents and the ac mechanisim. I also routed out around the dash center piece and the steering column. So far it is looking great. I have had a few bumps but its coming together good and Im pretty excited about it. Hopefully I can work more on it tom after work and take more photo's for everyone before it gets dark. Thanks guys

I got it fixed. I kept emailing the photo's from my phone and when I saved them it would only let me save them as bitmap or something like that and wouldnt let me change it. Anyways here are some new photo's

Movin right along... good look for that truck. At the ends of the dash, its always nice to make a form that sort of contours into the door panels. Little late for that... but good time to start thinking of how to do the door to blend into the dash a little.
This is what I do for FUN!

Here is what I plan on having the door panels look like. This is just a sketch on paint of couse so get get my idea...

The orange I plan on painting and the more tan color will be wrapped. I am planing on putting a 6.5 in the door and maybe a tweeter. But I have def thought about how I am going to flush the door with the dash. It shouldnt be a problem at all. The dash sides are pretty straight althought they do stick out towards the doors some but not to bad at all. I havent worked on the dash for a couple of days because I get in a rush and screw things up so I have learned to just take it easy and not work on it too much at one time. Let me know what you think of the doors though
