July 5, 2006 - The modified lightweight dash.
A bilge blower will probably be used for the defrosting. The metal bracing was trimmed back somewhat. Interestingly, the 1991 dash has a reinforced section where the steering column bolts in while the 1994 dash did not. The welding on some of these joints on the 1991 dash are done by hand and it looks as if there was some experimentation going on.
The current weight is 14.8 lbs, a 6 lb savings. I've been eying a few more spots where some weight can come out, but I need to make sure we have room to mount everything we need first.
