    Good work Al! I see the strap on rear ds seat to fold it down, were you able to keep that functional?

    I had to attach the seatbacks in stationary, but the center armrest is functional.. I really don't care for 3 headrest back there , but it is what it is. I really don't see having people back there on a regular basis.

      Love the modern dart seats. Looks great. Was going to go with 05-09 mustang buckets myself, but found a pair of original 69 buckets.

      Been out putting some miles on the car. Man this thing rides nice. Handles nice. Runs pretty good too ! I've been letting the wife drive it to get the hang of it. drive-gif-gif.gif

        Changed out the dash lights to some LEDs. I can actually read the gauges now !
        Was it easy? Hell no ! Bought some lock sockets for the new bulbs supposed to be 5/8" but weren't , so I had a spare dash with some old extras. Ended up taking the instrument panel out , got them put in and working and seen a pin in the round main plug in was real loose had to steal the one in the other dash. Swapping It in to my good dash the temp gauge studs twisted out, had to steal one from the other dash. But other than that it all went ok.:BangHead:
        Good thing I hung on to the other instrument cluster.

              Matt if I'm not mistaken it takes 8 bulbs for our dash. I can send you some for the postage, if you want some.

              Yes 8 bulbs is what it takes. I would be willing to pay you to get more than 8 of them since I need a few for exterior lights on my pickup, and am considering redoing my 67 dash in white as well since it looks really good that way. I always like to have spares of something in case I need them, and these store in such small space.

              I really would like to find something that duplicates the chrysler blueish green that the OEM dash was.

              Our instrument panel has the blue covers for the 4 dash lights , so they still have a blueish tint.
