Another weekend of finishing work.
Preperations are being made to button the dashboard onto the panel. I filled all the grommet holes in the firewall with high-temp RTV. I also fabricated patches to cover the holes where the Zenith style throttle linkages passed through the firewall. They also received RTV along with rivets.
A new panel light was installed to replace the one that was damaged while in storage.
