Next up is the dash.

For a bit of reference, the real car:



As usual, pretty much everything got sanded and most got painted. The stock dash actually had a really nice, satin-ish finish. However, it had a few too many exposed rough spots that needed filling.

I kept the stock chrome center pieces.
























The top of the dash was all covered in leather. Did my best to cut out the openings for the defrost vents. There was a bit of a gap between the two top dash pieces, leather wrapped or not, but I'm anticipating it not showing up once installed and there is no light penetrating the gap.














The steering wheel was pretty bad. Not only was it slightly bent (which was pretty easily fixed with a flat table and some pressure) but the edge of it was about as rough as a ridged coin edge. It's hard to tell in my compressed photos, and I forgot to take progress photos. The final result cam out pretty nice though.











All the lower dash parts got the same treatment.







A bit of test fitting without the all the lower dash.

Very nice work Dustin, especially with the added leather and carpet fitting, really adds another level and brings the whole model to life?

Very well done! Cool ThumpUp
