    A few things i've been working on

    Post by 1LoDakota85 on Mon Jul 18, 2011 2:58 pm

    So I've been wanting to do this for a while now and finally got motivated to start working on redoing my interior. All the interior pieces are from a parts dakota that I bought after Katrina. The plan for the dash is to smooth it down and mold the passenger airbag piece to the rest of the dash to make it all smooth. I also want to smooth and mold the bottom pieces of the dash such as the glovebox, ash tray, and part under the steering column into a solid piece as well. Once it is finished I will have two pieces for the entire dash, the top piece with the airbag plastic molded into it, and the bottom with everthing molded together.

    The plan is to have the entire interior blacked out with some color matched red. The gloss black and red will look great together especially on the dash.

    Heres what I started with...


    And now smoothed down...


    The smooth and rough compared...


    The door panel somewhat smoothed down...


    The top of the dash smoothed down. This sure is alot of work. Anybody want to help?


    Heres the airbag piece compared to the rest of the dash...


    Heres the Dodge begging me to hook it up with a clean interior. Who knows when I will actually get it finished though

    Heres a small update. I'm putting all my focus on the dash for now since it is the most time consuming and will require the most work. Once I finish it I will finish everything else afterward.

    Here's some updated pics of the dash. I would say I am about 90% through with the first round of sanding. I still have to get an ash tray and sand it down and finish a few edges. Once I do that I will start the molding process with fiberglass.

    Heres a side view of it...



    And a bottom view of it. Heres a good view of what I am planning to do. The glove box all the way to the piece under the steering column are going to be molded into one piece. The ash tray and glovebox handle along with everything else will all be one smooth piece.



    Once everything is molded I am going to start the priming and blocking process. I'll probably prime it and block it out at least three times to get everything perfect. Im going to get it as near perfect as I can to really show the kind of work that I can do.
