RE: air bubbles out of polyurathane(SP?)

its not perfect and it just doesnt fit well enough for me, but its surely an improvement over the black plastic that it came with.

i think next time i will pick up a full set of matching trims(prolly 35-50 dollars at u pull it) and do them all at once, these panels match, but the ash tray and switch panel match eachother better and the heater control and the console trim match eachother better still, its a little funny when theyre all put together.

next time i am going to get a brayer(?) and use contact cement. this heat activated adhesive seemed ok when i was constructing the panels, but once i atarted installing them, it wasnt as good.

i also want burled walnut instead of oak.

Whatever you do,be safe and wear rubber gloves.You certainly don't want to contract any nasty veneereal diseases.

What a drip. Eurethra comedian or a wise ass. Remind me of my first girlfriend. Herpe was so foul I had to use rubber sheets.



not much you can do with std's on limited knowledge, thank Jeebus.

Your dash, like the driver, has a crack in it.

RE: air bubbles out of polyurathane(SP?)

after 30 years parked under the hot alabama sun, so wouldnt you.

no really-- i know, i am thinking of sanding them flat, bondoing them in and covering the whole thing in matching blue vinyl.

it might help.

RE: air bubbles out of polyurathane(SP?)

iNeon, I have the exact same cracks at the excat same place over the hot air vents in the middle And the exact same dash color as you have. Your dash looks like the twin brother of mine. With some missing spots here and there.

What's that bondo ? is it good ?
I also notice that my cracks are forming elevated edges on both side of the yellowish canyons.

Tell us more when you start working on that part, I love the way you re create the wood panels. I have been hesitating to simply order a dash-cover and I have been thinking about various solutions. One was to flatten the cracks and fill them (with what?) and then spray a false finish paint. I have seen something that sprays leaving a sort of paper light texture very thin.

And then the color ????
