yeah, we used the stock dash and glassed over it. When it's done and painted, you'll never be able to tell the stock dash is there though

Looks good. I remember OTG was going to make a 'glass dash cover, but I don't recall seeing the airbag opening.


Kudos!!!

Besides adding the gauges, you could've just sanded the texture off the dash instead of all the Fiberglass and bondo.

I used 180grit on the tops of the door panels, and they were the same texture pattern as the dash. Used a DA sander and took about 10min per panel to get everything but the edges sanded.

Just get it finished and it will be worth it in the end, looking good so far.

I have seen it in person and it looks nice. I just hope you aren't planning on registering that thing in Missouri again. Won't pass safety inspection with the passenger airbag cover up.
