It's been a while since I have done an update. Progress slowed down a bit over the winter. Priming continued through the fall, then started painting the dash and steering column.

Dash was sent to Vacuum Orna-Metal for a restoration and they did a GREAT job (pics coming soon). Painting of the body started last month.






The dash is back in.

The body work is the one thing I did not touch on my 64 F-85 build. Made a deal with friend of mine's body shop to use the car as a "fill in". He put the body on a rolling rotisserie while I torn down and built the rest. Your buggy is coming along great. kinda miss my 67 when I see yours....again nice work.

Steering wheel was pretty cracked. I used epoxy to get the loose pieces secured back down to the core, filled in the cracks with POR epoxy putty. It seemed to work well, but if it gets hot, the cracks show up again. Lots of sanding and repairing. Probably going to lose the definition of the lateral ridges. The primer helped fill in some micro cracks. Finished wheel coming soon.

To clarify, the dash in the pictures is a different one than the original that has the melting around the cig lighter.
