    512 cid C series on Dakota chassis- build thread

    They can go in the passenger side mesh screen in the dash since they only need occasional monitoring. For what it's worth, I think the dash is a better location for the gauges. Me, I've been looking for an excuse to use an old time cast below dash panel like these from Moon (then I can apply a "Moon Equipped"decals without being a poser!)

    Still enthralled by your build, even though the progress you can make in a short time makes me feel totally ineffectual!

    Me and the B-1-D

    I don't believe the seat covering and door panels are original Looks like it's got an aftermarket varmint control system, too! Great find!

    Plasti Dip

    That would be great! Let me know when you will be in the area (and where). Other than a yet to be scheduled spring trip to DC to visit our daughter in college, I'll be around.

    Plasti Dip

    Paul, I can appreciate conjuring up alternate uses for Plasti Dip. I have been mentally toying with a method of reskinning the rubber bumper guards on my '66 Satellite. I was thinking the spray wrap process, but they advertise that as removable. How did the Plasi Dip spray on? Would it hide checks and crazing in rubber? Sounds like you are looking for a matte/low gloss black finish on your frames similar to what was used on some '41 and most if not all '42 Plymouth vent window frames. I picked up a black factory painted vent frame for my P12 to replace a badly rusted chrome frame - I am considering mixing Krylon matte and semi gloss black spray paint to get the right sheen, and airbrushing it on the chrome one (after prepping the surface) to match. If your frames are out of the car, powder coating is possible - more durable (and more $).

    Mr. Shanks

    OK, Mr. Shanks apparently is an Advanced Member solely by virtue of reposting Barracuda ads? Something is afoot, and is this topic playing into it?

    Mr. Shanks

    So it's not just me (and I have a Barracuda!).

    Dodge Ram?

    Kendall - I'm a Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute grad; B Arch '77. As my dad used to say about engineering school graduates: "Four years ago I couldn't spell "engineer", and today I are one!"

    Dodge Ram?

    A guy a couple years ahead of me in architectural school had a '65 Barracuda with the top of a swimming trophy (he was on the swim team) as a hood ornament - the driver's door wouldn't open so he took out the passenger side bucket to make it easier to get behind the wheel. Orange Rustolium paint job, too, complete with blue lightning bolts on the sides....five years of design school......
