Thanks EB, we look forward to the day we can trek across the country to spend some time with our brethren Eagle members on the Right Coast, and a new paint job couldn't hurt either! :D

Thanks Folks! :D But as they say it ain't over til its.... Now the conversion process will take a turn down restoration lane :roll:. Having completed the upgrade on the gauges, now the fine details remain ;) Painstakingly and lovingly re engraving the panels. Boy this is tedious, eye straining work, but well worth the out come

more later....

Alrighty! Last but not least, the fine detailing ( hand engraving) of the panels :roll: :roll: , boy what a job and as I said earlier the results are nice. I know I did not mention the gauge face rings were shot in a metallic silver. I had the opportunity to delete the door air valve, HVAC controls from the left small panel, leaving all the toggle switches. I think I will use the now empty circuits to control the generator and the inverter (if I can ever afford one worth buying :P :lol: ), as well as a number of other things.

Moving right along, might as well rip out the dash and see what prevails :lol:

As you can see it ain't all that bad huh!

Got some work ahead of me, but I am way ahead of schedule. Wait a minute I don't have a schedule!!! :shock: :lol: :lol: Before I jump into this mess, gonna finish up the panels and redo the dash.

TA DAH!! I need a break, I'm having too much fun now, dash is done!
The before.

The after

Also went thru every circuit on the dash, and I now have a fully functioning dash, all the warning lights work like new to the connectors :D .
Now to rip every thing out from under the dash, and put back only what I need :shock: :lol: plus to go through the front electric panel and re-arrange a few items and toss out the excess fat :lol:


To Be Continued....

Thanks for looking :D
Van
