    Xmas time again so found a bit of time for my own project, I pulled dash out to prep it for paint and looking at it thought it looked a bit bland, so decided to give it a bit more character.
    This how it looked






    first job was to chop out the instrument section








    Next I cut some 1.5mm aluminium sheet into 2 pieces, first one as a backing sheet and the front, then these were tig welded together around the outer edge. I recently invested in a new Miller Dynasty 210 tig welder and one of the really useful functions of this machine the the arc frequency control so this was wound up to 300 and away we went, turned out pretty good for time use.









    I would normally of metal finished the faces before welding but completely forgot to do it but no problem as it will be vapour blasted shortly, the welded edges were blended & fettled to a nice radius and holes drilled for rivets.

    Hey thanks Ryan and they same to you and all the other guys and family's here, I'm sorry I've been mia on here lately but the parts side of my business has grown enormously in the last 6 months and it's difficult finding time to get on with my projects, kinda double edged sword

    While I was on a roll I thought I would tackle the lower switch panel, thought it was gonna be a fiddly taxing job but it went easy, don't often get that happen !!!

    First job was to cut a couple of strips of 1.5mm aluminium and drill the switch holes








    Next I cut 2 slots out








    Once cleaned all the edges up the top was put over the bottom plate and the various switches replaced, I havn't welded the edges yet as I ran out of gas and all the suppliers are shut bacause its bl00dy xmas !!!

    Sexy! You've got a great eye for design, and the ability to bring it to reality creating something unique. Really like watching the innovation you bring.

    Enjoy the little things in life, and you may look back one day and realize that they were really the BIG things.

    Great work! I like your style and how you come up with stuff so nice and quick! Congrats on the parts sales increasing. I wish you luck it keeps going so you can buy more hot rods to build so we all can watch a long!

    Thanks for the kind words Roger, glad you like it, this theme I have going I think is very much like marmite, some people love it but some hate it.
    I hope all the guys here have a happy and prosporous new year.

    I popped into my mate the chromer this morning and he presented me with my heater control panel parts, all nicely replated

    This is how they looked when I got them








    And now replated
