Fiberglass Dash How To for my 83 Square B - Page 6 -- posted image.

here is part of the ac vent sitting in the ring I made. It now easily fits in and attaches from the back to lock tightly.

at the top of the dash where it meets at the windsheild broke loose from the wood I originally had in there and got warped from saw horses so I had to screw it down to the right angle again. I plan on grinding the heads of the screws off they will hold it down for good.

second coat of bondo on and sanded down pretty smooth with 120. You can see under the guages I have not finished sanding all the way.

here is a close up of the part I still have to sand. I am using 120grit with some type of sander. I cant remember the name LOL. I will also be doing a lot of hand sanding on this piece to get it to have the curves I want.

Look at how smooth its getting. This is a pic between the guages and headunit. hand sanded with 120... about time to go to 320 and on and on.

Hopefully I will be working more on it today. I have to get the hole cut for steering column and a few other holes drilled for the lights, windsheild wipers and a few other things next to were the ac unit will be.

The wood from the frame came apart. I built some small piece to get the 1/4 in MdF to contour to the dash and when I screwed it in I guess I split the wood and it finally broke. Next time I take the dash to the truck I am going to tighten it to the right spot with the screws and then grind the screws off. Then it won't be going anywhere.

hey Stevematt18,

      Did you ever figure out a way to get the lines you were looking for? What kinda project are you work on or do you have in mind? Thanks and feel free to ask any questions about my build!

Just curious if there are any updates. Also, how are you planning on running the window defrost vents? Also wondering how you're going to control heat/ac and the blower and other standard controls?
Looking good.
