Got the RHD vinyl cover put back on. I have a leather cover that came in from that seller on eBay that was mentioned. But it came in a little messed up. I am in talks with the seller to get it sorted. If I had a good RHD lower dash to start with it wouldn't have been a bad exercise at all. Especially with LHD lower dashes listing for over a grand.

Don,
Before you install the lower dash, run a bead of seam sealer over every seam. I neglected to do so when I initially built my 110. This past summer, I pulled the entire dash apart to put some second skin LLP behind the entire dash. At the same time I sealed all of the seams in the lower dash. It made a HUGE difference in the heater air flow.

Thanks for the tip. Was hoping people like you would chime in with things that work and don't work. I was thinking running something on the inside edges of the lower dash and will definitely do it now. And any old seam sealer from NAPA / Pep Boys.

I forgot to mention it but I put some foam padding I got from the hardware store on the flaps so they would seal better if closed.

Btw - what do you mean by second skin LLP? Would the dynamat be similar to what you did?

I'm looking forward to seeing it too! Keep up the good work.

Second Skin Luxury Liner Pro, good stuff. Each manufacturer of sound control insulation has their own set of products. Some are designed to change the resonance of panels ( what you are using), some are designed to block certain frequencies and some are designed to absorb certain frequencies. I am unaware of a silver bullet for sound insulation. Different products/tools for different jobs.

Just thought this thread was long overdue for a revival. Picked a couple more up from galvanising today.
