1966 Mustang hacked up dash repair

Here are some pics of my dash repair. After the welding and grinding I applied self etch. When the self etch dried it was sanded, the filler was put on, sanded, and coated with self etch again.
I'm not sure why the radio hole was so big, but it's fixed now. BTW I got a AM/FM with ipod input radio from retrosound on ebay, anyone have one ?

Nice repair, did you happen to check the repair panel against the radio that you bought? Seems I remember reading somthing about a fit issue.

I did, and it was a tight fit, but with a few light taps with a body hammer it fit well.
Since I have put aftermarket quarters (full), doors, fenders, hood, trunk, valences, headlight buckets, etc. I am checking fit before I make anything permanent.

Great idea to check fit all parts. Did you also install 1/4 panel extensions and head light doors too. I had to adjust/fit mine when I hung my rear 1/4 panel. I fit all my body panels and aligned doors and fenders then took it apart to cut in edges, reassembled final block then paint. Alot of jacking around but worth the effort.

Hope you had a warm garage to do that work in. Super job!

It could get down to -30 below zero here tomorrow--the wind chill.

1/4 panel extensions are original and they fit well. I aligned the new doors with the old 1/4's and trunk in place, then fit the new full 1/4's one at a time. as for the headlight doors they fit the new fenders but i have not aligned the front metal yet.
Yes i have a warm garage, 2 30k btu NG radiant heaters, so i can make it as warm as i want. it was 11 here yesterday, but 70 in the garage, warmer than in the house !

I got one, but I *had* to get a new carb, so I haven't gotten speakers yet - but I am impressed with the unit.

Here is an update on my dash repair.
I primed it with a mar-hyde 2k over the self etch, then sanded it smooth. Next was the ppg dbu basecoat, followed by the transtar clearcoat. I painted the doors, dash, rear panels, and rest of the interior parts. The last pic is where it's at now.
