I upgraded my dash gauge lights to green LEDs from superbrightleds.com

Wow what a difference and so easy to do.

Tomorrow is replacing all the door rubber seals to assist with some leaks.

Needed a shot of motivation so I knocked out a cosmetic project this weekend. Capped lug nuts are gone. All but one was destroyed in the process.

Spare tire carrier bracket is off and I'm preparing to put the mantic carrier on this weekend.

The interior is still stripped bare with most surfaces covered in dynamat extreme.

Every accessory gets a fresh ground and power I'll likely have as many relays in this thing as in my D2.

Picked her up from Ship's Mechanical in Portland. Gone is the 3.5 twin carb V8 & LT77, replaced by a tuned 3.9 V8i mated to an auto trans and Ashcroft console. Added Air con also.

I'm probably going to replace it. Likely cheaper/easier than refinishing the wood. Apparently they were available in leather. Off to try & find one...

Easiest way (I know of) to tell OEM from Ashcroft is OEM has 2 cup holders, whereas the Ashcroft unit has an iPhone holder in the same spot.
