It's at this point in the build where you go, "I really didn't mean to get this deep into this project."  :whistling:

I'm getting ahead of myself, as usual, and mocking up my dash. I am really excited about this modification! ??
Which car is the dash from?

Great work replacing all that crusty sheetmetal.

That is a 69-70 dash and dash panel.

Before and after Dustless Blasting!! Man, It looks so good! Next step is to fix some rusted through spots and then paint it with Rust Bullet. Check out the video below!

Awesome.... what about the rest of the car.

It will be done in stages. Didn't want to blast the whole car unless I am ready to paint the whole thing, which I am not ready to do. I didn't want parts of the car sitting unprotected.

Impressive. I like where your head is. The '69 dash is my favorite too.

I used the dustless blasting too and despite what I was told, it flashed by morning.

You wouldn't be in the Detroit area would you?

Nah, I'm in Mississippi. Was your car outside or in a garage? It's been over a week and mine has no sign of flash rust at all. We died it as quickly as possible . The guy that did it told me they put a chemical in the water caller HoldTight 102. Apparently it's pretty expensive. He said that some dustless blasters will say they are using it but really aren't. It will flash very quickly without it.

Great job on the doors, haven't started mine yet but sure I will find some rust somewhere

Interesting on your dustless blasting, my dustless blaster actually recommended against it mainly due to water getting into the nooks and crannies.

Eventually went with glass bead blasting and epoxy primer straight after, worked well.

Awesome! From what I gathered the water has a chemical called Holdtight 102 in it which is a rust inhibitor. We also had it completely dry in a few minutes using a commercial grade leaf blower.
