Re: 2013 shows

I thought about it, but it's already looking dodgy. Might wait for something closer to home

Re: Restoration era 1097

Did you re-chrome the rims on the dials or did you get away with just scraping off the black paint?

Re: Restoration R1028

How well are you getting the dash to fit between the upper & lower rails? From the pics it seems to sit a bit proud like mine. I was wondering that if a 4 or 5mm spacer was placed over the studs on the top rail before fitting, it would in effect raise it by that amount and perhaps this would enable ...
