    Next task is designing and fabricating the dash heater/defrost vents.These pics show making some simple cheap tooling to aid fabrication.Pics show the use of nylon chasers to form and shape into the jig made.The following post will show grafting in the vents into the dashboard.

    Glove box liner built to house Air Ride gauges for rear.

    Last photo shows the heater/defrost pipe that needs to feed the new vents we just grafted in.The room behind the dash and the windshield frame housing is very little.So i have to design a box housing between the vent and the pipe for the next project.Photos to follow.
