Jon, the combination of your prior description of the Aux. Venturi material and the new Pics have answered my question. Thank You.
A side note for any interested in building one of these. There are 2 different Monogram 904 kit's out there. One has Skill 3 on it kit # 2954 which is the one Jon is building and the other is Curbside. So remember no Level 3, no Engine.

Hi all.

I rebuilt the dash. Was not happy with the 5-min epoxy. So redid gauges this time making plexi-disc for lenses. Not PE key

Jon, well done. The texture on the Dash looks about perfect for 1:1 krinkle finish that was popular back in the era. Well done.

Thanks all.

Sometimes you have to do things twice to get it right. I chose a textured paint to approximate that 60s crackle.
I think the clear plexy is a much better solution to the 5-min epoxy for lenses. I got differernt sized punches from Micromark and what a difference!

I will try and get some more work done this weekend. I have to make new window glass. The kit fit is awful.

All your extra detail work really makes this come alive. Nice job.
