looks betetr than the gray that it was IMO, but ditto on the letters, you could go back and paint them...like to match the car or something would look cool

I've been wanting to do that. I have a paint pen I got to do touch up the lettering on the dash of my '68 that I think I'll try.

nice job.


now take out your overflow bottle and wash it out with some simple green.

when doing so part fill with water, add some simple green, stuff a rag inside.

shake the hell out of it.


rinse thoroughly
