I think he means food that hunters put out during season to attract deer. Mice like to store food in the winter, little bastards

Yeah, why didn't you get the whole dash, especially since you're replacing the gauge panel. I think it would be more work to match up the two pieces of dash - the original and the uncut one. Then you could sell your old dash.

EDIT -- Ok, I looked closer at the pics. I see the part you cut out and can understand just cutting and fitting that one piece back in.

Don't you love when jobs start out... "well, I'm just doing the interior so paint the dash and door jambs....gee, this paint job is looking old, just paint the whole thing!" Suckah.



I happen to like my two tone dash. One day I'll get the old radio back in, or the hole in the dash fixed.

That two tone looks nice, it goes the other direction.

It would have been quite a chore to take the whole dash as its welded all around.

Thank you. And yes, I understand the dash being a chore to cut out. My truck is the same way. If I were to look for a dash that was unmolested I'd probably just cut out that section, too. But like I said, I went back and looked at the pics again and the dash has different lines so I can see the reasoning behind where you cut it at.

Very nice. I've got a '65 Fairlane 500 4dr. Needs a LOT of love...so it's going to be a real long project for me someday...trying to get out from under my student loan debt before starting the whole resto-mod plan. Looking forward to see what else comes of your Fairlane!

Door gutted, even the wing window. We will be shaving the door locks.



Fenders off



Looks ready for the dirt track



Cut thru the paint to see where the factory put on the quarters, yup, lead.



Same behind the rear window



Looks like the red was painted over, notice the different shade where the trim was



Factory quarter panel on this side too

Found a small hole, only one we have found.



Going to bare metal where the seam sealer and weatherstripping goes so we will have clean paint






Removing sealer on the quarter panel seams



Cleaning the jams, they will be as smooth as the outside when done





Amazing that this car looks like this right now. Kinda freaking me out.






Removing all the sealer on the drip rails

Pulled the heater side of the dash panel from my white '64



With the oversprayed guage side that came with the red '64



Mocked up in the dash, these will be restored later after all the metalwork is done. We hare having to weld on some tabs where they cut some dash away to install that custom panel that was in there.




Working on the quarter panel seams where the factory lead is.
