Yeah Matt its getting too cold outside for me too. I don't think I'll get to the finish coat of the sheet metal because I would have to paint in my basement.
I had a problem with the lower part of my dash box. For some reason it was extremely crooked where it meets the tunnel. I started to leave it but I knew I would be looking down at it & kicking myself for not fixing it.
I knew from experience plywood wrapped in fiberglass makes a good repair or structurally solid. I made a bracket from a piece of 3/4" cabinet grade plywood. I checked for fit & altered it to not interfere with the steering column. I put a heavy coat of FG then set the bracket then clamped to force the joint to normal. I then covered with mesh then another coat of FG.
Looking down at it now is a whole lot better & once again very satisfied with my efforts.
The dash plate decal is from
http://www.clickitan...990-dash-decal/ A little pricey but really looks good. I used the dry method. Make sure you clean & remove any dust particles. I got this decal on & everything looked good but this little worm like thing under the ammeter area. I pulled it back up very carefully & found a small beard hair I got it out with tweezers & good to go. The material is pretty forgiving. If you have to lift it up do it slow as not to stretch it.
