    1968 Chrysler 300 Upper Dash Pad...is this a cover?

    I have not but the name suggests it is made for our setup. Ive read many times - with other solutions - that after working hours to fill and blend the cracks that once the heat hits it the lines are very obvious. Speculation is the filling material needs to be able to bond to the existing dash...

    What are you working on today??

    Finished my ugly solder station. Tried to use only existing materials (in my garage) as much as possible. Handle made from fuel line. So far I fixed 4 drill batteries and killed one old bluetooth speaker. woops.

    Radio Knob Measurements

    I am working on 3D printing some knobs for a bluetooth project of mine and want to practice both basic and period correct styles. I'm thinking radio knobs would be a good goal. But I dont have any examples anymore. Sold the radios I had. So I'm looking for someone with a caliper and camera to...

    1968 Chrysler 300 Upper Dash Pad...is this a cover?

    Ive gone through the thought process too. Assuming the vinyl is badly cracked and brittle but not too much missing, and using weldwood Laundau high heat cement do the filling work with bondo or or something semiflexible - like RTV maybe. Then cover with this below. Same as weed cloth, car...

    Radio Adapter

    I never used one but looks like the redirad is designed to play the radio by default...until you plug in a wired phone/mp3 player and then it automatically plays whatever is plugged in. If you plug in your Bluetooth adapter to the redirad and leave it there, like its designed to be, its likely...

    Engineering a windshield solvent reservoir

    This one with cap painted black? Ironic that if you find a new one that would work it looks out of place...not yellow enough. Some tan vinyl paint should help. Classic Car Windshield Washer Reservoir Pump Bottle Accessorie Jet Switch W/Hose | eBay

    Engineering a windshield solvent reservoir

    I have successfully fixed a brittle, cracked, but mostly intact original using resins to line the inside and outside. It is possible. I fixed 2 actually, one is my current one. All lower corners were missing, about the size of a qtr. I fixed a worse off one also. Both required sanding and a bit...

    Bluetooth Addition - What would you want.

    yes, i have one of those too and if fm is not required this is a great bluetooth only amp with 3.5mm aux input. Then its just about getting it clean power and mounting it. And of course a usb charger somewhere.

    The toys that made a difference to you...

    They have already been mentioned but at first it was Lincoln logs. Quickly went to Tinker Toys with wheels and rubber bands but the little slots on the end would stop gripping or break which lead me to the most influential being Legos. As I grew and got less interested they introduced the...

    Bluetooth Addition - What would you want.

    So sounds like the original working head unit was set up as an aux input to the new head unit. In your case he left both old and new powering their own speakers. Thinking that a LOC which converts speaker level to low level input could be used (or not even needed ) to convert the original HU...

    Bluetooth Addition - What would you want.

    Adding a system to my fury is in the works and Bluetooth connection to my phone will be main connection. I'm getting a few versions (so cheap) of this combo plus a few extra boards to test. For example this board (some videos and reviews are on you-tube) has Bluetooth connection, can be hooked...

    What are you working on today??

    Put together a better dryer vent diverter to keep the warm moist air inside the house instead of wasting it outside. Lots of internet videos about this. I originally got the diverter box that just used the screen but that clogged quickly so took the screen off but that just coated everything...

    Emblem Reproduction

    I wonder if you created the silicone mold why couldn't you fill with low temp brazing rod like muggy weld Super Alloy 1 which melt at 350f. Heat gun could do it and is less than silicone melt point. (not sure if mold making silicone is the same)

    1970 Seat Foam

    I haven't jumped in here because my application is different but I figure this thread might come up in searches. I got a set of 68 buckets from a 300 and bought the foam in question and the legendary covers below and the foam had to be modified a bunch to make it fit. I'm doing it myself. I...

    Dashboard Repair 69 Chrysler 300

    That video is interesting in that it replaces a powder with a solid which is more controllable and less messy. Basically anything that sets off the SG curing and many things do. You can use spices (cinnamon during the holidays) as the bulking agent/catalyst. I'm going to have to think bigger in...

    Dashboard Repair 69 Chrysler 300

    I couldn't tell you what screws are correct for all the holes but most times the seen screws are oval heads and seat nicely in beveled holes. Other times you will need flat pan heads. I have bought this trim set and it has proved very useful. Perhaps if you know exactly what your want you can...
