  1. Thanks a bunch. That's quite a read. I had actually considered the possibility of buying a new-old dashboard but it'd be tough to ride a manual with an arm and a leg missing so I've kinda scratched that idea for now. I'll keep digging Project R to see what I can find. Thanks again.
  2. Good Day guys. I love DIY jobs. Recently I've been thinking about giving the dashboard on my 91 Mitsubishi Pajero Mk1 a makeover. It's not horrible looking at all and I can tolerate it, but the metal speaker covers on either side have lost their color and I want to paint these again. But to give it a uniform look I'm thinking about painting the entire dashboard and along with it the console box and everything else. Now about the dashboard it feels like it has a soft layer of vinyl on top, and it has stood the test of time for 30 odd years. But something has melted behind the "Oh Shit!" bar and it just wouldn't come off, and that particular area looks pretty nasty. I I've seen a few posts cautioning against painting dashboards with improper paint that would either peel off or cook under the hot sun and release toxic gases. But videos I've checked out online suggest this Duplicolor Vinyl and Fabric paint, but can't seem to find it here in our resplendent isle. Has anyone of your DIYers had any luck with painting your dashboard, I'd plenty appreciate any advice. Thanks and stay safe.
  3. It's a horrible time to look for vehicles, but hey you want it when you want it. I'm looking for a Jeep(old motor) and the first thing I usually do whenever I see one is to run the number on the DMV app. And I've gotten rather good at spotting shady jeeps. Now my question isn't related to which model I should buy or how to spot a shady one, I think AL has a fair bit of posts on that one, but rather why some(most) old jeeps have missing model names, and "0 Invalid' for wheel bases. While I wouldn't touch these with a ten foot pole, I'm just curious to find out the story behind these. Thanks. Sent from my Pixel 2 using AutoLanka.com mobile app powered by Tapatalk
