    I also like the dash. Mine is drab. I've finally cut all the rust out of my 84 RRC and heading toward sand blasting the interior and maybe rattle canning the finish as why this thread interested me.

    Prob is I can't see 99% of your photos (same issue on most threads now). I can see Pedro's. I'm also looking at jon3950 simpson trip and can see all his. How are you posting yours? Just need a bit of info before I try self help then 'admin'.

    My pictures? They are hosted here on the forum. If you are logged in you should see them ( they are far from exciting BTW ).

    Hopefully this weekend I'll get some primer on the thing, so next weekend I can blow some colour around.

    I'm using a Linux program with Waterfox installed, a small set and forget arrangement and was working fine for long time, and i've made no changes to it since. So if things change then the changes are occurring around me and in theory nothing I've done - so I may have to make some adjustments. If i hover my mouse over your photos a little image box appears with a timer gif that just keeps ticking over. If I ask for 'open in new tab' then I get an aulro screen with the dialogue box that says I'm logged out - and if i try logging in it just takes me back to the message that I'm logged out. I'll open win10 and see if there is a difference.

    I assume epoxy primers and paints are still most favored. Dan Gilbart has some youtube vids and makes an interesting point that you can go straight to colour on freshly sandblasted steel provided its under 3 hours since blasting. Dream Car Garage had a segment on their painting processes so I listed all their layer types - and boy, do they do a lot of cutting back on the top coat. I watch restoration programs that present their finished paint jobs, and on some I can still see an orange peel, and others are like polished glass and no distortion of images reflected - even though they're all presenting as high class restorers there seems to be difference to me. Not that my vehicle is headed that way regarding restoration.

    Oh, has your subscription lapsed.... er, actually. I wonder if mine has too. From memory there was some tiny, token amount we paid to get full access to the forum. Easiest way is to try a normal browser. I know this works fine through chrome on linux mint.

    Definitely OT but your access probs were similar to mine.

    Inc has been incredibly incisive and disabled some incompatible background do dad on the site and all is good with me now, after getting increasingly disappointed with incomprehensible log outs.

    All good to him!

    Try logging in now, DL.

    Is that the ashtray on top of the trans tunnel? I've never seen one in an older RRC and just assumed the butts got tossed out the windows.
