1-24-11...took the dash out and threw it away a week ago. Bought some shackles to level it but returned them because were gonna do it a better way. Ordered Dolphin Gauges for the new dash were going to build.

Material showed up. Taking a closer look there seems to be a problem. The track for the sliding door interfers with the paln for the cage. So I'm putting the caage on hold while the sliding door becomes a staircase.....this should be interesting. Any ideas would be appreciated.
