Installed the sound deadening material to the back of the door card instead of in the door itself...also staped in a plastic 'pocket' to keep water off the back of the speaker

Black door trim gives the kickpanel a nice, finished look

Dry fit the new dash pad just to get a look at what the final outcome will be...

Dash pad installed, it really draws attention to the faded blue paint of the dash but I can live with it. Sure looks a lot better than no dash pad like before.

I need to do something about the faded, crumbling steering wheel but for the most part it really starting to come together

Took the wife for a ride around the neighborhood to test the sound deadening material and it made a huge difference.

Try to find a steering wheel the same style as that one. I've found they are the best for hand position and comfort over later models.

Been following this thread since page 1 great work! Which sound deadening material did you use? Did you remove the old tar-like goo that was in their from the factory? I'm doing that now on my 1980 4x4 and it's not hard, just kinda tedious. A heat gun and small scraper work great...

Used Mat 66 from amazon. Was easy to install and works great.
A small scraper was used to remove the loose gunk underneath
