After removing the
old dash, I made
certain to take lots
of pictures, make
sketches, and label
every wire very
clearly so that I
could put it all back
together when the
new panels arrived.
Crimped joints were
covered with heat
pictures of the dashboard. Although all
the switches and dials would be getting
replaced, taking note of where everything
was on the original dashboard helped
immeasurably later on. There was no
logical layout to the original, plus equipment had been added over the years, so I
made a full-size drawing of exactly how I
wanted the new panels to look. Sending
this off to the panel manufacturer along
with very accurate measurements meant
no surprises later.
With the trial fitting out of the way,
I moved on to the rewiring. Using mini
resettable push-button switches that
incorporate a circuit breaker simplified
the wiring. All connections were made
using proper crimped connectors covered
with a length of heat-shrink tubing to
keep moisture at bay.
