I actually hadn't planned on doing that anytime soon. It throws plenty of heat for me, so if it ain't broke, I ain't fixin it!

Well, on the 10th of this month, I ordered a new windshield and gasket from Morris. The gasket came within a few days, but I just got the glass yesterday! Was excited to finally get the windshield put back together, until I opened the box. Looks like someone tried folding the windshield glass in half so it would fit in a smaller box! :

Called Morris, and they are shipping another one right out. I got my fingers crossed!

Not too cold out today, so I went out to the shop and figured I'd pull the dash out and get it painted while I'm waiting for the new windshield. It sure was nice to find all the wiring still like it was new. Not hacked up at all, except for an aftermarket wiper delay switch that was installed a long time ago.

Dash is all painted up now. Flat on gloss. I think I like it!

That does look nice. I too was very fortunate with the wiring in my Jeep, it's all new!

Other than a little dust, mine is still like new!

And here's a new shot of the dash after the paint job on the glovebox door went bad. I think I actually like it though! Might just keep it like that....

It does look good, as long as it doesn't flake off. After the first pic I thought "that would look good with a textured black paint instead of flat", but then it textured itself!

Now I'm wondering what it would look like if it cracked all the way through to the red. I bet that would look even better! If I can replicate it, I may do the same effect of some other accessories that I intend on doing in flat black.

Yes, that would look awesome if it did.

If you want to play with some effects there are products to produce a crackle finish paint for antiquing furniture. Here is a simple one using Elmer's glue.

That looks pretty trick. You're getting so good that even when something messes up it looks good! It was 65 degrees here this weekend. It felt like a dream! Too bad I couldn't cruise any.

Here's the dash all put together and ready to go back in, including my awesome screw up! Lol

Going to vacuum out the rats nest from the heater box tomorrow, then I can put it all back together. Fed Ex is taking another shot at delivering me a windshield in one piece on Thursday, so I should have the jeep all back together real soon. It's been WAY too long since I had a drivable jeep! Lol

How's them gauges coming Bradley?

I just checked out this link. I think I'd be concerned about the Elmer's glue adhering to the basecoat permanently, but their directions are similar to what I had done. The basecoat (gloss black) wasn't laying down nicely, so I put it on extra thick. It was laying flat, so no worry of runs. It was also cold out, and the base was not fully dry when I top coated it with another thick coat of the flat. Shouldn't be hard to replicate.

I got the borescope out tonight and stuck it down into the heater box. Just as I guessed it, full of little bits of insulation from mice! So I grabbed the vacuum and started sucking. Kept pulling more and more, then had to tape a chunk of garden hose on the end of the vacuum hose to reach all the way in.

Finally got it all out though. That was one busy little mouse!
