    Got a front windshield, other than that not much else going on. Started the tedious task of doing body work.

    Here is the gauges wrapped in Black vinyl. It has 1/4" of close cell foam behind it, sanded to fit the panel. Pretty happy with the way it turned out.

  29. Try Waytek next time. All Painless does is repackage and mark em up. Chris supply prob has most of them as well.
