It doesn't seem like many people are looking at my post where I've been informing people of my progress anymore so I'll do a new post.  Today I actually did the Marglass of my top dash cover.  I also made a front MDF post to hold up the front of the dash top.  I stapled fleece all around it and glassed that.  Saturday I'll Marglass the piece and grind down the dash top.  If I can, I'll also use Rage Gold on the dash top and sand it down.  That's the plan at least, we'll see what happens.  I may have to take my truck to someone to have some electrical things fixed and if that takes most of Saturday the work will happen on Sunday instead.  For those of you pic freaks, I already have lots of progress pics and posted more just now.

Well hopefully I'll get more done this weekend and I'll post more pics at least once for every day that I get work done.  If you want, bookmark my site and just check up on it every couple days.

Doing the dash top and front will actually be kind of easy.  The tough part will be doing around the steering wheel and the lower dash.  It will take awhile to build an MDF frame like Alpine does if that's what I decide to do.  I might take some shortcuts if I can think of any good ones.

Anyone got a source for marglass. I assume it is fiber impregnated fiberglass.

I got my Marglass at Finish Masters since they were out of Duraglass.  They are the same thing but made by two different companies I think.  Thanks for the encouragement. I have to get my electrical things fixed tomorrow but maybe I'll have time to do more work.  If not, it will be Sunday.

Finish masters is awesome. Do you guys know if they carry that 3m textured paint for making dashes and stuff?
Anyhow dude gotta keep posting them pics to make sure your project doesn't get all "mustang" on us.
Tell the Snap-On guy I'm not here!
