I'm on the final lap of my rebuild and thought it might be a good time to see if I'm overlooking anything.

I've got the dash removed on my '77 Dodge B200, I'm actually rebuilding a new one out of wood. I'll be changing out cluster bulbs, the speedo cable, probably the instrument circuit board and voltage regulator and air vent ducts. Anything else you guys recommend I do while I've got access to the guts?

had a great post a couple years back about changing out the heater core in his 93 Chevy. I should probably bite the bullet and crack that thing open. Anyone do this on a '77 Dodge before?

Any other thoughts are gladly welcomed!

That looks great! How hard was it to pull out. Id like to pull mine out and give it a nice paint job.

You've covered everything I covered when I did the same to my 77 - except I painted my dash (which is irrelevant for you since you're building your own).

Maybe check the doghouse gasket seal?
