The upper half is painted! In the next few weeks, we'll paint the lower half, then add the color for the center stripe between the mouldings and the color on the lower part beneath the lowest moulding.

He worked on the dash pad on Tuesday and should finish the job next Tuesday. Here are some photos of the wirk he did on Tuesday. He's repairing the holes, cracks, etc. He'll paint it next Tuesday.

Thumbs up

Thanks for sharing your pictures and the fantastic progress. Is there anything you guys can't do? I have seen this one trade hands a couple of times and and thought it was lost to this world. It is very heartwarming to see it go to such a great home. Kind of like watching it come back from the dead.

A few details

I purchased a used refrigerator access door & a generator access door from Craig's List. One of the technicians in our body shop removed two louvers and the hinge and installed them in the old refriderator door. Also, I had the front & back Argosy emblems Powder Coated.

Klattu,

Meeting up sounds good to me! I had to cancel going to the CanOpenner Rally at TopSail 3 years in row. Maybe next year we both can make it.

dash

What did you guy use to repair the dash cracks. I am going to have to repair my dash the last repair was done with body filler but it broke in the same place. I can't find anything to bond with the plastic.

Thanks

shepherd57,

The professional that is repairing/restoring the dash will be back on Tuesday to finish the job. He does this for auto dealers (used & vintage vehicles). I'll get the details from he & let you know.

Did your repair guy finish the dash repair on the Argosy. How did it turn out and did he happen to mention what he uses to bond the plastic together and what kind of filler to use. I can't seem to find anything that will bond with the plastic.

Thanks
John

John,

No, he did not finish the dash, it was raining (and Mardi Gras here!). He needed to paint the dash and panels with the Argosy parked outside and the windshields are still out of it. I asked him what he used to repair the vinyl dash & plastic panels, but he said he would not tell "trade secrets". I do know it's a type of epoxy, because it uses a catalyst. What he uses, fills the small holes and cracks in the vinyl and it also bonds the palstic. After it dries, it can be sanded and painted. He should be back tomorrow, I'll check again to see what else I can find out.

John, who is restoring the dash pad and instrument panel, came back today. He painted the dash, glove box, and door panels and he should finish the small items next week. I just had to include him in thephotos

Here are few photos of the the painted dash and glove box. The next step will be to install the windshields and paint the lower half of the body. The goal is to have those completed by the end of this month.
