I have just completely LOST my mind!

Well, I had my oil gauge pipe burn through on the headers, so I needed to install a new one. Seeing as how I would need to get behind the dashboard, I decided to remove the entire thing.

Now that I have the ENTIRE dashboard removed, are there any upgrades or mods anybody can think of that would be easier with it out? I plan on removing all of the gauges, cleaning them, repainting the dashboard and reinstalling them all (possibly in the same areas, haven't decided), and installing speakers.

Any ideas?

Re: I have just completely LOST my mind!

1. GM Heater Blower Motor Upgrade and rebuild the heater box.
2. Redress ALL the wiring into a neat loom rather than a rat's nest.
3. Remove tarnish from ALL the connectors.
4. Make a drip or rain shield to go over the back of the radio...it diverts the water to the floorboard incase of a cowl/winshield leak.

I would do the same thing and yes I'm insane. Definetally deal w/ the electrical issues, maybe add a factory look clock and maybe some better gauges.

Don\'t worry...

I found it. Shipping & handling will be $45 (US only) and you can expect it in 2-4 weeks from the day I receive your money order.

Have a nice day.

Re: I have just completely LOST my mind!

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img] It's rare for him to mention this, but 77CJ-7 made the coolest dash setup for his CJ. What he did was pull a section out.....like a blister... and made it tilt toward the driver and that has a cluster of gages in it. It reminds me of an industrial piece of equipment where they sometimes pedestal-mount the gauges or have a special bump-out for them. 77CJ-7's gauge setup has a certain military influence about it, doubtlessly from his hours of staring at a full panel in the eggbeater that he uses for his second car...whop....whop...whop...whop...whop...[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]"This is air Bravo.
