78 Formal Dashboard in a 72 C Body
« on: June 21, 2012, 07:26:58 PM »

a year in the making and too many electrical gremlins in the factory wiring.  So here she goes.
 
It's getting a complete 1978 Formal Dash
Complete 1978 Newport Wiring Harness and EVERYTHING is getting rewired the right way this time
 

 
Now you know why I want to rewire it.  OH  Yeah!  I'm installing the factory 1978 Heating and AC system.  Sick of freezing my butt off in the winter.  That vintage air unit stinks.  But the AC is so so.

What's wrong with you? You don't wait until one project is finished before you start another one. If you do that, you might get sidetracked and be without a project for a while.

Been talking about this for a long time. Yank that seat out so it doesn't get messed up, give you a couple more inches to get around.
 
Steve must be getting better, multi-tasking is a positive sign.

Not only that, he is one year in the future. Check the camera date stamp. I guess the world won't end this year.

I didn't set the date on the camera.  My wife did.

Making quick progress.  Glad to hear you're finally getting around to fixing the dash wiring for good - get the gremlins out once and for all.

That title "Polaraco is down & out" had me worried, given recent history... then I saw it was aboot the car!

Hey is the removed dash pad any good?  I need a clean one, if it'd work in the 70.  A re-dye can be done...

It's better than the last one, but it too has two big cracks in it
