Got the dash all finalized.
Still need to get the green piece upholstered, so I used a spare to install it in the coach for now.


Still have to finish up the wiring.
I love the wiring diagram fro this thing, it's in the service manual and it's a 5 or 6 page fold out that's about 6 feet long. AND it's hand drawn.

That dash looks fantastic. Is the green cowl the factory piece?

Aaaaand that's what it used to look like    >: ;D
 Slowly moving along, took a day off work yesterday to change the oil, grease all the zerks, get new tires, flush the radiator, check the trans fluid, mount a remote air filter, and drive it around a bit.

Why you ask?
Because on wednesday I have to drive it to Indiana to get painted  :o :o

This is the basic color scheme we've decided on.
I'll add vinyl stripes later on I haven't fully decided on that yet.

Too much haha.
It's a funny story actually, I was searching everywhere to find a decent painter around here for a reasonable cost. I sold my 69 GMC truck to fund the paint.
One of the guys that came to look at the truck came down from Indianapolis. He didn't buy the truck but we got to talking and he owns a huge body shop and buys these old trucks to restore and flip. He has a paint booth big enough as well as enough dry storage to keep it in good shape during the 2-3 weeks it takes to paint it. We worked out a deal for him to paint it, that's why I'm taking it to indy  instead of staying local.

Locally everyone quoted me between 15-25K to paint it. Which just flat out isn't going to happen.
This guy's quote is much more reasonable at 5500-8500 depending on how much stuff they have to remove and repair.

Still a chunk of change but much more in line with reality I think and they do great work I've seen some of the other stuff they have done.

C'mon :)
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."
