    That color is sweet, I thought about painting my 85 442 that color with the gold stripes since I put a sage interior in it.

    I found a super rare '85 Supreme with at sage green interior that had buckets and a console in it however the console was gone... it was in nice shape too. I put it in my white '85 442 body that I had and installed a camel tan console. Actually looks pretty cool, I'll have to post some photos when I get it finished up and the weather clears up.

    Been working on the interior pieces some more. Just cleaning and painting, good ole sem.





    Also I found out I screwed myself after boxing in the frame. I needed to fish a couple body mounts threw the newly boxed in section. That took me a few hours with a wire, but I finally got it.

    GREAT NEWS. I finally got to bring her home yesterday. Took a little effort to get her loaded and unloaded but she is now home. I get to start the fun time of putting her back together.

    More news. I came across a cluster on ebay out of a 87 442. I couldn't let it slip by on me so I scooped it up.



    I also realizied I never posted pictures of my dash after i got it back from justdashes. I started swapping the wiring off of the donor dash to mine. Figured it would be an easy swap as opposed to trying to remember how the wiring hooked onto the back of the dash later.

    I got most of the dynamat in. Then put in the gas and brake pedal and a few other odds and ends. Soon I will be able to do the wiring.

    I got my dash and most of my wiring back in. Still trying to figure out a few plugs but not a big deal.






    Got my gas tank set up just trying to figure out how to hook up my sending unit.

    Very cool, I love the color combination.
    I'm curious on the dash, is Just Dashes now doing Cutlass dashes?
    How close is it to the original in detail?
    Anything stand out?

    The quality is pretty nice. The only issue is the edges aren't quite as sharp as original becuase they put new vinyl over top of the old dash after they fix all the bad sections. I like it and now i don't have to worry about cracks or fading because its new vinyl not old and brittle.
