so couple of things today ...
started machining a new antenna mast mount .. I know some might call it silly .. I just think it's all in the small details ..

you can see the old ones in the picture .. and neither nor really fit the new 2000 POWER antenna .. and because the fender is "flat" on the top where the antenna sits , the newer power antenna mounts dont fit either , they sit on the side of the fender .. in the picture .. the chrome stock piece is only a 1/2 .. the picture only shows 1 side .. I think it looked dumb , so this is why I'm making one .

so I started this .. still more polishing to do .

and continued working on the dash
First I made a template for the original "woodgrain" , out of paper ... layed it onto some steel , and cut it out ... test fit

trimed and drilled ... and screw'd into place ....

Now I have a bare template for heater controles and switches , and sterio ... I'm not a smoker , so there will be NO ash trey in this unit !!!
