Dash is now painted to match the new exterior colour (1970 Dodge Q3 turquoise). It should look good when the rest of the interior is done. Also getting a Grant wood wheel - like Krautmaster's.

Upholstery is Legendary, panels are SMS, and I am going to try the  bucket seat foam from Legendary  (MF60ABCSET) as well. Back seat will have to be re-done locally.

That's the only reason I gave up my finished 69 300 vert - had to have it.

Thanks Pete
 
Red is put away for the rest of the season. . . I have to get this subframe into the 68 to make room for the 62 New Yorker, I bought from Snotty in 2003.  This will be the first time it's moved since.

Stevo, I sure hope you have not changed any of your plans to go there in August.  I'm taking that week off to be there to help.

What's up with those taillight bulbs?  I've never seen that type before, or is it just an optical illusion?

Looks great regardless...really like that color!!

It's a red plastic cover over the regular bulbs.

It's actually a red glass dome. That's the only way unless you use red bulbs. I'm also toying with using clear LEDs that light up red. Don't know if there will be enough light spread to reflect off the back of the bowl though. They might be too directional, but will be brighter.

I Like the color you chose, it's a bit darker than what I was going to paint the VOAB with
