Refreshed Dash
« on: February 02, 2022, 22:40:48 »
I’ve finally got my dash back in order.  Dad had put in a Blaupunkt radio/cassette and the dash got pretty hacked.  I got it repaired/repainted, had Becker Autosound bring the original GP back to tip top shape, Jeffrey Read repaired the clock and Madera refinished the wood trim.  The dashboard covering is original and just needed a thorough cleaning. I used 303 all purpose cleaner followed by 303 protectant.  I also had the heater control module removed and bench repaired.  I’m quite pleased.

Wow beautiful. The color combo really works. Body work required to repair the dash ?
The improved interior details really show.
