So I decided the ol' TR4 needs some attention.

I'm starting with the Dash, floors and other stuff to come.

This is what the dash looked like when I picked her up a couple years ago.

FYI the steering wheel and horn button have been replaced. (still have the Les Leston)

Not bad but not what I want it to look like.



Pictures I took of the metal Dash board removal

Got my old Plint apart. I show how the washer squirter has a screw on knob(I broke), and the Choke pull has a nut from behind with a push on knob.

I decided to have the metal dash powder coated Cardinal Pure White. Closest I could get to what was on the back of the dash(spa white).

And we wait for the powder coater.....

I have the Crash pads need to start prepping those.

Any other While I'm there that people recommend?

I think I'll do the Choke cable and update the grommets, dash bulbs, and update the squirter hoses.
