The last few days i have been awaiting on parts for other projects and i found time to put the front bumper back on,and the headlight doors.
To finish up the wiring i had to do something about the dash,and yesterday i recovered the dash and the console the supports the gauge panel.

I'll get some pics.

Most of the parts i have been waiting for will be here today,so its back to work on making a living.

Most of the wiring is factory with factory connections.
The added on stuff like the allison harness etc is stand alone.
Its really a simple deal,not a lot of wiring in it.

Today was quiet,so i worked on the 71!
I wanted to install the dash and hook it up but i really wanted to seal some gaps and insulate under the dash before i put it all together.
There was some big gaps where BB used Dum-Dum to seal it and the dum-dum got hard and fell out,so i made some sheet metal angles and glued them in place with urathane sealer.
Then i glued rock wool insulation to the firewall and then i covered that with duct board,and taped it all up with silver duct tape,the foil kind.
It looks really good under the dash,pics tomorrow!
