An often overlooked component in many restorations is the dashboard, but it’s attention to ALL the details in your dashboard restoration that will set your car apart from the rest. When you enjoy your ride at a car show or even on a local cruise night, you spend a lot of time looking at your dash. Mark Simpson pays a visit to RJ Restorations in Farmington, MN to gain insights from owner Bob Wilson into how they restore classic car dashboards.
Wilson shares the processes he uses in building concurs correct cars and a few helpful hints to speed up your next project. No part is overlooked and many parts are replaced to ensure the car will be as good as new. Thankfully, Classic Industries offers many of the components we needed to complete the dashboard restoration on our project 1971 Boss 351 Mustang, and their fit and finish met Wilson’s exacting restoration standards. Bob explains how using quality reproduction parts and paying close attention to the details is a sound investment for your classic car.
