Slow going since Mrs. Rod has more "important" things for me to spend my time on.

I have been working on the dash area which is mostly cleaned up and repainted. I have reinstalled the wiper motor (and found out that it will NOT work if the switch is not grounded).

I ordered and received a repop speaker assembly and have it in the dash. I think I want to put some sort of cover over it to keep out dust and spilled coffee.

I picked a parts gauge panel off ebay, and have been studying how to put in some new gauges.

I would like to have an in dash tachometer. The tachometer option seems to be fairly rare (and pricey). I've checked out 4" tachs that would fit into the center bay of the bezel and a 2" tach that will fit into the extra gauge hole at the bottom next to the oil pressure gauge.

I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

January 10-13, 2020. Out with the Old and in with the New

I spent some more time messing with my dash gauge panel, I used a dremel tool to open the holes for the replacement gauges. They stick out the back a little bit, so i'll have to drill access holes in the cover plates. Easy money.

The new body mount kit came in the mail from Energy Suspension.

I finally got to pick up my new gas tank that ole boy down south mis-ordered. It came with everything but the big O-ring for the fuel level sender. I used a can of paint that has been on the shelf for a "while" to give it a bit more protection. I still need to acquire new rubber hoses for it though.

I jacked up the body enough to get the old remnants of body mount out and installed one side. I'll have to replace the two rear bolts, as they sent hex bolts instead of carraige bolts. I only had "issues" getting one front body bolt out but Mr. Impact Wrench made short work of it. Luckily there were only two body bolts that had nuts on them.. the rest were not replaced when they swapped out the body!

I spent most of my available time in the garage cleaning parts and applying rust inhibitors. It took me three attempts to get the heater controls and the heater box to fit into the same space. I ended up bending the heater control a bit. I guess this explains why the back portion was loose.
I have another shipment of parts coming in from Classic Chevy soon. I'll be able to install the gas tank and run the engine with a real fuel supply.
