Default Dash fire update and HUD install

Well I am happy to say that the Great White Curse lives again to die another day. The new harness is in, and I got a new HUD mod on the side out of the deal. Thanks to Ed Morad for supplying the parts.

New parts:



Final product:


Any questions? I had to modify the defrost tubing to allow the HUD to fit in properly but that is really the only issue that I had. The rest just plugged in. On a side note I burnt out another radio display bulb that will now need to be fixed again. Anyone know what bulb to use on that. On another side note I now have a like brand new non-HUD dashboard available for a 2000+ bonnie.

Not the whole dash, just the top piece toward the windshild with the cutout in it. It required some minor cutting and fitting without the entire dash swap, but not too bad. I found the offending fuse in the engine compartment. It was a big yellow blob or melted fuse. Got that thing out of there.
