The new dash as I purchased it needed to be covered and the accessories needed to be drilled and cut in.
Other then that, all the mounting brackets were attached and it was a strait forward installation.
The ducting from the heater/ac box needed to be altered and new defroster ducts needed to be attached.
All the additional parts I needed Wilkinson had on hand and the costs were very reasonable.
For me, this was the correct solution and I enjoyed the project and love the results. That's all of my work. No one else was involved.
The change in feeling of the interior is a drastic difference. Gone is the all black Darth Vadar feeling.
The dash itself is very sturdy.
The additional gauges are an electronic fuel pressure gauge and a manifold vacuum gauge. Both very helpful with a Weber carb set up.
The wood is red oak and I just need to be mindful of termites now?
