There is no rust anymore, just shiny black paint. And a "new" windshield from my Hornet...



And here it is, a "new" dash...



It is much better than original one.

I have never seen that color combination on the seat covers. Must be very rare and looks factory.

Testing... New dashboard is about 4 mm too much on right... There is not enough space between it and right door...



I think that this darker color is not bad at all... Needs no painting.

Here is a wrong color, but who cares...

I have done some modification to get fresh/warm air to driver and passenger...

My Eagle hadn´t air conditioning at all, so there is just a empty hole in the middle of dash...

I had extra aiconditioning parts taken from my Concord, so I could fill that area with air outlets

Air ducts with holes...

My main task is to get this job done by the end of May. Then it is the best time for this car to have road test done. Why is it so? In Finland your car must have its annual road test before the original day of registration (i.e. when the car was new). My Eagle is private import, so it hasn´t this official day of registration... If it is so, then last number of the license plate gives the last day of road test. 7 means end of August. I have three months to do the test. June, July and August... If I want to drive next summer, Test is end of May.... If I do road test before, I have to do it again by the end of May... One day earlier, you have to do the test again by the 31st of May....  :banghead:

Today I fixed left front brake. Not so easy as it should have been... Cylinder had some rust... It took 1,5 hours to get it done. Think I´m gonna buy new calibers...

Started to strip driver side fender flare. What was hidden there... Guess what? Rust of course.  :help:
