Hey Bryan,
Shoot some pics of your truck when you get a chance so we can see what you are working with. My dash was so hacked up - had to be a bit creative getting it back to the land of the living (I had help).

unless u are a paying supporter, you cannot 'attach' pics..(fte restriction), but you can upload them somewhere and then link to the pics to have them show.

I use Photobucket as my upload site.

then you either paste the link with [img] url [/img] around each,
or push the mountain & sun icon (in the editor menu) to get a dialog box that will do the same thing..

This big glob of bondo was inside my dash. NOT because there was a hole or rust. Oh no! But rather because a cob-job specialist IDIOT previous owner of my truck needed something to hold the ignition switch in place. I stuck my camera inside the hole where the dash cluster sits and took this picture of the backside of the hole where that ignition switch was sitting. Never mind that they make screws, nuts, clips, etc. for such things. He just slathered in a huge glob and let it dry around the switch so that it would hold in place. This picture is typical of the whole truck before I took it apart. No real permanent irreversible damage, but a lot of ridiculous BS.

Here's mine when I bought it. I haven't changed anything about it, other than putting the ashtray back in (it was laying on the floor). As you can see, it has a really cool '60's green color that someone thought went well with the bronze '60's color on the outside.



Fortunately, it is not hacked at all. The only changes I plan are to pull the radio and install the factory delete plate and speaker cover before it gets painted.

FTE will only accept a max size of just around 2 meg for an image.

at the top of the upload window it says 'failed' when too large..
