    Being just an amateur machinist I found it much easier to start off with these
    cheap pieces to use as blanks.

    They are available at Tractor Supply (when they have them), but I order them on line
    from this place.

    I had hung the dash, but never finished mounts for it which I now took
    care of. I also reshaped the top ends of the dash by reshaping them straight, and shortening each end 1/2" to allow for door upholstery.

    I wanted to add strength, and have a panel to attach upholstery. I bent up a
    angle to mount to the door pillar which I plug welded to the back side. At the
    rear I had to make a piece that was flat at the bottom, but rolled the
    corner at the top. This gave me the most room for seat , and belt attachments.

    This is the finished piece which I was going to cut the centers out of the bead
    rolled design for access. For the time being I screwed it on instead of welding it.
    Later when time for interior I'll finish it.

    Very nice work Rich! Did you put the dodge script into your valve covers? I am going to cut mine and put some older centers from a Ford FE in mine. Anyhow, it is looking great! Those bead roler dies are slick too! I modified some vice grips to do some of mine. Yours is way nicer.

    Ryan:
    I wondered if anyone would catch that "DODGE" valve cover! LOL It took another Hemi owner! I pressed that
    in, and chased it with a hand die for better definition. I had planned on a 'how to' as soon as I get the pics together.

    Just a little update. I finished the inner support panels that will hold the
    upholstery later. I covered the space behind the seat, but could not
    finish the area beneath the rear window. I have to fab a housing for the
    roll down rear window first. Covered the open part of the door shell, and
    made covers for the 'B' pillar.

    Next project is the exhaust, than I can pull body.

    Rich, your interior looks better than when Henry made it new. I really like the panel work

    Rich, nice job on all the bead details of the interior panels. Will be a shame to cover them up with upholstery!

    Interior panels look great. I'll be looking into making some more dies for my bead roller, thanks for the info.

    Anyone can dream it, takes a man to cut it up!
