Because my t-case already ate 1 VSS and I was sick of laying under my truck. BTW, the 5 bar is original ExMOD paint, the wing and the top of the antennae mount is Krylon Camouflage ultra flat with 2 coats of Rustoleum Satin finish spray. Close enough for me.

Center console - EGTs on top, boost on bottom. 80dB alarm for EGTs mounted on the backside.

Clock is from a Mercury Sable - the display was supposed to be green, not blue. Oh well. I never realized how much I like having a clock in the truck.

I used a 5" grinder with cutting wheel which worked very well other than the corners, and then a thicker grinding wheel to clean up the edges after. Will post up more pics once I get it all buttoned up. I know the dog is going to be very happy with it, no more sleeping standing up just so he doesn't miss something!

I did seat risers and a third brakelight on the rear door today - happy with all - but the seat risers really do put you up higher, I wish there was a compromise!

Dreaded Bulkhead Rust. So I addressed it. I found a couple other areas that I will tend to before I do the body work and reassemble it, but this was the main issue. My wife usually drives the 90 and is currently visiting family in Europe, so it is a great time for me to get this crap done. I have a whole list of other issues to take care that I have been putting off....

Pushed the rad back a smidge. I noticed, while I was fixing an oil leak at the port of the bottom oil cooler line, that the rad frame was butted up against the slam panel. This wasn't allowing the rad to ride on the top and bottom rubber grommets properly. Now the rad moves freely and show be transferring fewer vibes to the bonnet.
