    I painted the dash Jet Black and adjusted the air pressure to get a slight texture to it. I cleared it with a Matte clear.

        Ash tray cover and glove box cover are in high build primer. Hopefully get them finished in the next day or so.

                  The led blue is outstanding at night. Put a set in a 67 nova..

                      Saw a console "reminiscent" of the factory console for a 4 speed 70 Roadrunner and other similar cars, but it was for a floor shift automatic.
                      I contacted the company, Blue Thunder Consoles, and they put together a prototype standard transmission console and sent it to me for evaluation and tweaking.
                      I cut a little length off, made some other mods, fitted it up, took lots of pictures and measurements and sent it back.
                      They sent me the first of what I hope will be lots of these, and one of the best things about it is IT USES THE BENCH SEAT SHIFT LEVER, so when you switch from bench to buckets like I did, or if doing a build from scratch, no need to spend $450-$500 on a Z shaped shift lever.
                      I REALLY like it! $350!
