    ^ I used bumper bar texture coat to finish the dash off. It doesn't have the factory texture on it unfortunately but it's still textured rough. It looks fine and as long as you do the whole dash someone that doesn't know what the dash is meant to look like wouldn't even pick it. You do need a certain spray gun to do the texture finish so it's probably easier to look it up on how to do it.

    Here's a few more current pics..









    So yeah, this is where I'm at. I sprayed the wheels, front grille, rear tail light trims and B pillar trims in the same colour to match. At first I wasn't sure about it but it's grown on me now and I really like it! It's something a bit different but suits nicely.

    It's so close! I've had it started and running, needs a small tune but the carbs I bought are very close. Just a matter of mixture screw fine tuning and idle fine tuning.





    Not far away now, small wiring issues with the new dash but that'll be sorted pretty fast and I'll be good to go!

    Still plugging away at this. I've just bought a house so money is a bit tight at the moment, but I've been doing all the small things to it while I'm saving up for carb tuning.
