Repairing and flocking a dashboard (specifically, a Destroyed Datsun 240Z dashboard brought back to life)

If you’re a person who’s in to old cars, you’ve probably experienced cracked or damaged dashboards.

This is my very first blog post. I’ve been meaning to set up a blog for a while to post about interesting projects that I’m working on.

Things that I’ll be posting about on this blog include:

  • small programming projects and thoughts
    • especially javascript-based (nodejs or in the browser)
    • video game programming
    • engineering management?
  • app or program ideas and half-baked implementations of them
  • automotive modifications, restoration posts, aftermarket parts installs, guides, etc
  • dumb automotive ideas
  • children’s toy fixes (especially ones with small parts that are easy to break)
  • 3d printing stuff and other “maker” type projects
    • lots of small projects involving raspberry pis
  • power wheels repair and modification, parts installs, upgrades, etc
  • general DIYer stuff

I may do some youtube videos if things need further explanation than what...
