    While the console is being rebuilt I took the opportunity to do some assorted xtras. I sanded down the finish on the aluminum dash cluster and after some thought of having it powder coated and wondering how to reproduce the printing the two remaining brain cells that survived the 70s :) collided and I had a plan. I primed and hit it with some polyurethane paint. Visited a couple sign shops asking if they could scan the photos and print it on vinyl. One said he though so and would give it a go. Printed on a white vinyl and covered with a clear layer. Not exact but I love it. All for $40. Gel coat on the console will be shot Monday and all completed next week some time.http://i1075.photobucket.com/albums/w428/curt5962/dash/photo.jpg
