  Now, we finally get to installing a garage door instead of the Bulletin Board Vinyl tarping. This was not easy. The 'garage' was made out of Bulletin Board Vinyl, you know, the extra large signs along side the highway. This is the roof and sides. The door, was also. Time to get a garage door. It was not a easy install.

Comment:
  Oh boy!. The second problem. See?. Thinking of this took some time. We never installed a garage door before. First time.

  Fits, and the door works. No animals, leaves can get it. This took a few weeks in between work.

  It's been a while since the last update. Just to let you know a few things, and a video too....

  First, I have a new Dash Pad to install. Must wait until warmer weather gets here. Working with vinyl, you need warm weather, for painting, glueing, and all. It's not a easy install. This is a new dash pad, and takes preperation. That video will be done when the dash pad is in and also done.

  There are some more "Forgotten Fixes" too. Those will be in the near future also along with a video to match. It's winter, and here's a fun type of video. Me and Vic took the car out for a drive. Hope you like the video.

  Guess you can call this a crusing video. The old fashoned way, no phone and no texting. Crusing the old fashioned way, with real person to person talking.

  A new gun place opened up round here. They cut down a tree, and turned the trunk into a glock 9mm hand gun. Really cool.

  A little late on this video. Had other things to catch up on. But, this video is a fund raiser car show. Me and Vic did this show last year, summer, 2016. The Big Timber Car Show over in Court House. Not a large show, and not a lot lot of people, but we did have a nice and fun day. Here's a video on this show.

  It's mid winter, too cold to install the new dash pad. Too cold to do any more forgotten fixes. So, I took the 62 out for a hair cut, a soda, and a short drive. Not too much going on. It's cold. But, here's a short video on this run.

  This video kicks off the spring-summer more restorations to this car. There are more things to do. Thedious stuff, and one thing I have not done before. Hopefully, all will go well with that. It's not a cheap part, and it's on the dash. So, here's a video containing the things to do, and a few things this winter about having fun with the car.

  Time for a new Dash Pad. Found one from Rhino Fabrication, and it looks and fits just like the original. It's not a easy install. Takes many steps, thought, and getting the steps right is half the battle. This video is a bit long, but necessary to understand the steps, and what is needed in each step for a sucessful installation.

  This is Restoration Video Number 165. The 62 Get's A New Dash Pad.

Comment:
  Trimming the pad is important. If not trimmed, it will not fit. The right fit means the pad will lay correct, and less chance of currling up around the trim edges, or bowing in the middle.

Comment:
  We went as far as testing the fit by installing the trim, and making the trim mounting holes before the actual glue went down.

Comment:
  Because these pads only come in black, we also had to paint the pad. Latex paint is a good choice, no primer.
