Great looking dash!! No doubt it took lots of time and effort to get everything connected and wired up properly. Doesn't look overdone either.

Hi Jake that looks very nice I would be well pleased with it. I sure like the gauge panel it gives it a nice clean look, it is a good choice. Are you driving it yet and how are you doing? Hope all is well keep up the good work...Vernski

Not driving it yet, we just put the dash in last night, I still need to do a systems check as well as the wiper wiring, that's why the heater controls are still out (I need a heater core as well).

If all goes well with the electrics check next week, we put the steering wheel on. Next come the temp muffler tie in; I'm still running open headers- loud engine.

Then the windows. Time, time, time......

Default Re: Finally finished the dash wiring.

That came out great and looks like you got the turn switch/wiring harness issue resolved as well. Good luck on the rest of the electrical systems check.

I have a green wire and a grey wire leaving the column.The green is for the horn,the grey is for the shift selector light,I'll need to tie that into something for the headlights.
