Painted the dash and interior metal trim pieces to match the new white upholstery.

Carpet will be dark blue 540 to match the exterior color

Found patch panels at Layson's. Should be here by thursday. Stripped the fenders, banged 'em out and got them in epoxy and primer. On hold 'til patch panels arrive...
