Helping a friend 

A friend of mine called and asked if I look at his dash and possibly fix.He had some computer problems and took to shop they had the car for over 9 months ..He paid them $1500.. On his way home the dash dropping the whole clove box! Then 2 days after driiver side his lap !!The shop he took it to destroyed his dash. But his car was running ...1 month later it stopped running.. I agreed to look at the car..So two days later a tow truck drops of the car.. Mercedes 190 here's what I saw when I looked Inside..

I couldn't believe it he paid a shop for this !!! Interior looks like thief recovery.. So I took it all apart.. All the mounting points were broken off..

To replace the broken dash parts was over $1700.. He asked me to rebuild as best and of course as cheap as possible..So I took on the the project..I fixed and made new mounting points...fiberglassed it over sanded. Textured best sa possible Repainted.

Had to do some blending to match paint as best as possible..So here is what it looks like so far .. Still waiting on top panel only part ordered..

Interesting for you
