CJ Dash Restoration.... that classic look!
I thought I'd start a new thread on restoring the dash panel on my CJ back to its original glamor with some minor upgrades if you can call it that.
Along with the front grill of the CJ's, I think the OEM dash panel with the original gauges is one of the features that sets the Jeep CJ apart from all other Jeeps past and present. There is nothing like them anywhere or being built that way anymore and I often get asked "is that an original dash?". People are generally in awe when they see a CJ dash in its original form and function. Can't believe you must pull knobs for heat and ventilation, look all the way over to the middle of the dash to see the speedometer and has a radio with push buttons to change stations.
I started to restore my dash after it came back from the paint shop but decided today to take it back apart and start over so I could take pictures and post them as I go along. So, without further ado, here we go....
