BiG SCREEN TV!!!

I found this TV in a 64 Impala kit. It had Rabbit Ears and an AMT Ad on the screen. I left off the back of the TV and cut off the Rabbit Ears. Then I cut down the Dashboard and the back of the TV, for a tight fit and glued it in place!

Ira, far be it from me to tell the master of the cartoon builds what to do with their builds but what do you think about a bubble instead of a flat glass for the moon roof ? Just an idea, you know best.

Thanks for the suggestion Ray!

I do have a bubble that size. I tried it but I don't think I'll use it... B)

INTERGALACTICAL DASHBOARD!!!

I found some Real Nice Round Head Pins, Made from Glass, in Dolores's pin cushin. Looks like these would make Great Control Levers!

I drilled holes in the Dash and glued the cut down pins in. I also cut out the back of the seat and fit it in place.

I added some Gauge Decals and a few details and the Intergalactical Dashboard is done!
