Welded a filler plate into the dash to fill in where the radio / speaker /clock /ash tray, this will smooth out the dash. This project is starting to take shape. I'm starting to learn how to TIG weld, Tiged some S/S 3" tubing running boards for my truck that came out not bad for my first time--- this takes a lot of seat time to get good at this craft. :D

Just finished fabing speaker boxes in the kick panels, plan on building a cover over the gas pedal to hide the ugly drive by wire pedal.
