Very Nice! I really like the matching angles on the right ends of the multilevel dash assembly.

Loving that oak up front, kreg jigs are awesome.

it's a slick looking drivers area now

the garage/gym floor tiles you have are they part of your driver area flooring? or just temporary?

Thank you guys for the encouraging words. Maybe someday I will get this dash completed...

I am currently waiting on some new heater hoses (and reducers); they should be here tomorrow. The new heaters have 5/8" fittings, the bus coolant boost pump has 1" fittings, and the bus coolant hard lines are 3/4", so three reducers are coming too...

And as for the floor tiles, I would say they were experimental, but I don't think they will make the cut.

As YC might say, "take off hoser..."

Yummy FlexFab Blue Silicone Heater Hose; bottom right is 1ft of 1" ID, top right is 14ft of 5/8" ID, and left is 40ft (way too much...) of 3/4" ID.

I took advantage of a snow day here in Maryland to get the new Jeggs dash heater installed.

The taped up "Y" connected hose goes to the windshield defroster vents, and the the other two hoses go to closable vents under the dash.


The rotary knob in the top left of the below pic is the controller for the heater.


I also installed the black metal grating over the heater frame.
