    No, they ARE pot metal. Muggy Weld (I think that's what it was) is a lower heat way of welding pot metal, more like brazing. It's still easy to melt it.

    Thanks! The upper half of the dash is dark green metallic. The lower half matches the roof/scallops. This picture is a little dark, and is before i swapped out the gauges, but if you use your imagination...

    Monday progress again, so today I ended up changing up the talegate. Up since Delaware has a antique tag which if you have a 5 digit or lower u can get it , which I'm running one on the wagon , the tag smaller than a regular tag ,also my brother stop over and helped sandblast a bunch of my small odds and ends peices and I put them in epoxy primer , also started bodyworking the left half of the hood .
