Is this padding behind the dash necessary or would you install the dash with nothing.  The padding was removing in the installation.  Can't find it. 

Put nothing in its place or
Put something in its place?

thanks!

I'm traveling this week so I can't take photo's.
This is from memory. . . .  .   . What was your question??

Just kidding.

Your switch is like mine, or very, very similar.
The gauge cluster is held in place by a "U-shaped" metal bracket that is held in place by two threaded metal studs with nuts on the back of the cluster.  The ends of the metal bracket, when in place, touch the back of the metal dash.  The rest of the bracket is just above the back of the gauges so that when the nuts are snugged up, it pulls the cluster against the front of the dash.
Hopefully someone will provide better information.  It will be next weekend before I can get a chance to see mine again, or even access my stock of existing photos.

Does anyone know what the Heater Blower Switch looks like?  Photo... or part number.  Mine looks like an aftermarket one but I am not sure.  It is the switch that would control the fans if one has them installed.

And does anyone know what holds the gas/oil gauge onto the dash?  Is it tape?  I don't have any photos of what held it in place.

I got my dash back from the painter and have laid out the wiring.  Scary looking.  My old wire to the right and the new, neat stuff to the left.  This is going to take a while but I was pretty good with labels and photos...

Scott,

can you post a photo.  Hopefully, I can see if it is the same as mine.  Also, if you get a chance this morning, can you give me a call. 

I have a question about motor parts.

thanks!  I will PM my phone #.

I'm sure Henry has more information. . . .
However, mine was painted in 2008.
My notes report: MB423 "Tobacco Brown", Glasurit.
I think it looks like the same color as the original, from what I recall.

If you want a photo, or maybe a sample of the paint, let me know. 
I have a small bottle of the extra paint that might still be usable.

Project moving ahead very slowly.  Does anyone know the color code for the dash.  It is a very dark brown - like chocolate brown or darker?

Page of one, Reply 4 of this build has a photo of the dark brown.  Third photo down.  Any help would be appreciated.  The painter is having trouble

with that color for some reason.

Hi Stephen, did you find out how much the car is worth? It's kind of hard to put a price on something like that.
