OK.. Been slack on progress pics. Took some time off to get the wifes 56 on the road.

Back on the Falcon...

So, I did not have a gauge bezel or pod. I picked up a bezel thinking I could just cut a plate and stick it on the dash. WRONG! The dash is all differet curves, and not like the flat bezel. Looking at a stock Falcon, you can see the back of the gauge pod from the side... Silly design. So I had to make my own fix...

Cut a plate out and left it long at the bottom so I could bend it to get the angle I wanted. It left huge gaps to fill at the side.
(Dont mind the dash work where the previous owner seamed in a new center section of the dash since the original was cut up for a non stock stereo... I'll fix it)



Cut some fillers



Looking better.



and bezel still fits



Still need to add the high beam indicator, but should look good once painted and filled

I then took a gamble.. I ordered new rocker panels for the car.
The new ones that came in (silver) were HORRIBLE.. folded instead of rolled, about 2" too tall, not even close to the correct profile.

Since the Mustang was based on the Falcon, I looked at photos online and the profile appeared to be the correct shape, so I ordered one.. (black)

Profile is MUCH closer to stock. It's not quite long enough, but I can stretch it wasy enough. It's something good I can work with.

And last, but not least... it has steering now! Used a vega box I had in stock, reversed the pitman arm and it worked great.

Been 4 months now since I built it into a roller one night. Slowly getting there.

Man I need more space to work with.....
