Re: '55 R-122 rehab

personally, i think the panel looks killer, and the bead is a nice touch. Likely, you are going to have issues with the handle for the vent. But, extending the handle a bit is an option too.

Now with Wings! I didn’t like seeing all of the vent “body”. Major dash decluttering in order as well.

A little paint and some wiring. Now for a custom HVAC system to attach to the new vents.

I didn’t take a pic, but I replaced the windshield seal yesterday. I’ve only been meaning to do that for about 6yrs now. Now I can repair the pinholes in the floor pans. Once that’s done I’ll POR them, add water and ice dam, heat rejection material and a floor mat. It’ll be nice to quiet things down a bit in the cab.

Looks really good. Much like a factory option. I really like how you left the dash original looking and didn’t just drill a ton oh holes for all your new gauges.

Really beautiful job. How did you match the paint so well? You are a true Craftsman!
