With the unusual dash worn and cracked and the heating unit full of leaves it seemed like a good time to strip the inside of the car and refresh everything.
This was also a good time to repair the sagging headliner. It was discovered the shifter boot had a hole in it causing road noise to leak into the cabin. The center console has a stainless steel sheet inserted into the center. This metal often causes the sun to reflect around the cabin. A new sheet was obtained and it was engine turned to limit the reflections. The cracked and damaged dash was re-covered with quality vinyl and a French seam was added to the front edge.
