So it's been awhile since I posted anything new on this thread since October I have found a lot of part's for the GT. 6 Trim rings and a complete black interior with door panel's a 71 passenger door correct 71 trunk lid. A spare GT trunk medallion and other small thing's tonight I actually finished painting the cluster and swapped out the oil gauge for the tach I got awhile back!!!!

No one on this site deserves his dream 71 SFGT more than you do given how much help you give everyone else. Keep posting your progress Manny and it is all looking good!!

When at your place last week after picking up a couple parts from you, I was quite impressed with all the parts you've collected for your GT Manny.
I wonder how many Fury GT owners are drooling over those trim ring you have?
The dash is looking good.
Not too long from now when you're out stetchin the 440, having that tach stare back at you while you're hitting the high rpm's will be the icing on the cake of your accomplishments.

Where did you snag a Tach? Super cool option to add to the car!

Many years ago I had the passenger side rear quarter glass shatter for no reason on my 70 Sport Fury, only person who had one for my PH29 roof line was about a 3 hour drive from me. Got down there and the guy had all kinds of cool C-body stuff and as we were walking through his shop he was pointing out this and that cool thing then pointed out the 2 used Tach's and one NOS tach he had on the shelf!

A friend had it in his car and wanted to go back to original dash set up I thought I would never find one.

Finished getting the pad onto the frame and assembling the cluster redid the chrome with those wonderful pens from Hobby Lobby. Just need to finish the white for the switches.

I'll post a picture of the pen tomorrow very easy to use and turns out great!!
Manny clued me into use of these pens to make the plastic dash panels in our cars look like new again a few years ago now. I was very surprised at just how nice our dash panels can look again with crisp white lettering and use of the chrome pen to renew the outlines around some of the control pods, switches, radios, etc. on our dashes.
