Nice job on the dash. I’ve followed your thread from the start. I redid my Bonny also but seeing everything you have done so far makes me feel like I took the easy way. 350 SBC, Turbo 350, 7.5 Posi, Blazer Brakes, Monte SS Steering box ,oversized sway bars and carbon fiber wrap on the dash. I don’t have enough electrical knowledge and the confidence to even attempt your engine and transmission swap much less the dash pod. Awesome job! Here is a pic of my dash..

All you need now is a keyless entry module out of a Chevy Lumina so you can have remote locking and a trunk button. Might as well have the full pimp experience.

Oh, you must have missed that. It's not a factory unit, but it has locks, trunk pop, and remote start with rear defog activation. It's an Automate piece from DEI.

Like 27 years ago it seems (on my thread) I bought a roll of CF wrap for the CAI boxes and to redo the dash. A step or 2 lighter than yours but I was chickening out unable to picture how it would look when done? This helps, though I was growing fond of the cereal box tops look (y)

Developed a no heat situation mid week on the commute. It was running cold, so I figured the thermostat was stuck open. Sure enough, it had some rust scales impeding proper operation.

While I was under the hood, I remembered that I forgot to check the fuel filter after the oil change. It had some more of that fine black dust in it, but I caught it before it started throwing erroneous codes.

I can't believe it actually came to me in my sleep last night- the blue bin. Of course, the fvcking blue bin; that's where all the leftover project parts are!

And, after all this, the damned thing don't fit right

All the other gears are spot on; throw it in Park, and it's way left. FML
