UPDATE: Engine has been re-assembled and mated to the transmission. Big thanks to Sanil to letting me borrow his hoist. I'm off to a new job closer to home meaning i have to shift the truck out of this awesome workshop. Cab and tray have been temporarily fitted back onto the chassis for transport. Will take a break from working on her until the funds come back up next year. 2019 will see the engine fired, cab and tray blasted/dipped, filler and primed ready for paint.

It was a really hard decision to sell this truck, however, I couldn't be happier seeing this. It def went to the right person - Great work Sam :D !

Its been a while. Due to a change in jobs and me having to get the truck out of the old work place and back home, I've been very limited as to what I can work on. The dash was severely cracked so I decided to tackle it by widening the cracks and filling it with flexible filler. The metal backing also got a sanding and re-spray with matte black paint. I'm struggling to settle on a texture spray for the dash board as I haven't been able to find one with a vinyl (ish) finish. Will update again once filling has been completed.

Long time between drinks on this one. Still chipping away but very slowly.
Completed the dash board restoration earlier in the year. I think it came out alright.

Dash restoration looks great - what product did you end up using on it?

The top coat is Dinitrol 447. Not to sure how it will hold up but at least it looks better than the Grand Canyon that was on there previously.
