  • Scotsman Dash

    School is out for the holidays and I had some time today so I got my dash pad on the Scotsman this evening. The pad came out of a rusty '57 Transtar cab that's in out junkyard. It was pretty dry rotted and sun faded. I took some Gojo hand cleaner and rubbed it in all over it and it looks nearly new now. [8D] Aside from cleaning up a bit and fastening in the windshield surround, it looks pretty good, IMO! It certainly does help the looks of the Scotsman's stark interior. I just need something to fill in the gap in the middle. [?]
    BTW, the radio delete plate is covering a hole that had a cassette player in it, and the sheet metal on the door is covering a hole where a speaker was. [}] [V]

    Keep in mind that this is no show truck. But it is driven on a daily basis. [^] And I know I need to paint the dash, but... (Well the whole truck needs painting really. [)])



    The stainless trim is the rear door trim from a '63 Cruiser. Cut down to fit, of course.

        I thought they were the correct ones. [8]

                They do sort of look like Ford pedal pads. I had to lighten the photo of your truck to see. The red car is a 47 Ford, and the last pedals are on my 52 Commander. But if they do the job...

                    Also I see that you must live in the South, where people leave the key in the ignition or in the ash tray next to the ignition!

                        Actually those keys in the ash tray are to the shop. I only takes the keys from the ingition at night. Around here, it'd be a little tough to steal an orange Studebaker.

                        BTW, my grandad said that the pedals came from one of the Stude venders, either SI or Steven Allens. Hmm...
