Default Lifting dash vinyl

Great progress. Looking at your dash repair, am I seeing the vinyl lifting in the corners? I have that same issue with my redo project in the same area. I must not have used enough of the welded contact cement or it released from heat. I had releasing in this area and along the defroster vents. I found some stronger heat resisted contact cement to fix it. Itís been holding well so far.

Micheal, thanks for watching out for me. Unfortunately, what you see is the poor quality of William's dash repair. In the corners, instead of trimming the material and fitting properly, he folds and glues. William says that it is hidden when the pillar post cover goes on.
I am going to take another look just to make sure though.

I have to give props to Bryan Lutz. Bryan makes the replacement instrument cluster circuit boards. Not only are the circuit boards quality, Bryan himself is pleasure to deal with. I had some issues with the circuit boards to begin with and Bryan was quick to respond to help out, even though I was the one who plugged the wrong connector to the wrong plug and had a few bad (bent) pins. After I fixed my goof up, Bryan worked with me on eliminating a few of the warning lights that don’t connect to the LS wiring. If you have read other LED light conversions you will find out the leds are very bright and you need a dimmer and resistors, I purchased all that stuff before realizing my circuit board had major issues. Bryan did a lot of research and found led bulbs that are just the right brightness, so no need for a dimmer. In fact I used one if the spare bulbs and replaced my led bulb in the light switch and the brightness was much less.

Anyhow, great product and great guy

Added engine warning light for LS motor and boost gauge. The ash tray worked out well for the location and was able to use the ground wire and light wire from the ash tray. When the instrument lights come on so does the boost gauge light.

Looking great! On my GT the PO removed the ashtray and installed a boost and AFR gauge that worked but was less than elegant. I wanted the ashtray look back with a cleaner installation so I installed the boost gauge where the clock was and then inset the AFR into the ashtray.

How's the match on the bumper covers to the rest of the car? Did they get it right? That's always the risk with painting from a different lot.

I agree that ideally all the parts should be sprayed at once, but it dint happen and all my parts look the same. I provided (3) gallons of paint and the paint was blended.
The painter has painted (3) cars for me in the past and they all have come out very nice......he is a professional.

Welwood contact cement does not work on vinyl. With vinyl, the only adhesive that works is HH-66. Itís a little more expensive, but itís the only thing that works with vinyl long term.
