Ok so since the plasma is down not much happened really....i did get the new metal for dash and get it mostly drilled out...my 2" hole saw had apparently died last time i used it(must have been the.beer) so i didnt get holes for my guages cut yet...or for that matter speaker holes either...they will have to wait till plasma comes back from its trip to cali....ill post pics of dash and interior mock ups tomorrow along with brake booster and pedals...nite
