Sharka’s metal door sills are really old and crappy. When I got them, they also lacked the desirable feature known as flatness. If I remember right, they came out of a very very wrecked car for the price of shipping. I bent and beat them back into shape as well as I could. I’ve had them for about 6 years.
It was time to modify them.

Yeahh….. you know that chrome radio I installed earlier? It didn’t last long. Check out what I did in place of it.
Continuing from my last post, here’s the full, finished interior. It’s all photos. Tons of photos. Maybe too many photos… but I couldn’t help it.
After nearly a year of back-burner-sitting, my 1600 vintage dash is finally going in Sharka. FINALLY! Check out the install. Finished pix are in the next post.
A review of Project-G’s new leather goods, a shift boot and vintage-fit brake boot. Be warned, there’s a lot of gushing.
Maybe the last update to this vintage dash project before it finally gets installed in a car. Maybe? I hope.
Yup, that’s an NB airbag control. Sharka is taking the week off from my blog. Today, Bucky gets the spotlight. And an S2000 start button!

A tiny NA6 dashboard restoration update. Very tiny. It’s mostly me playing with my toys.
I started restoring this dash last summer. It is now winter. That’s how motivated I was to keep going after I cracked the dash with my own repair process.
I revisit a gauge design from 2004 and Bucky gets a new set of gauges, just in time for Christmas!
