    Glad to see things are coming along again. And yep I can see why I only tear part way into the dash when doing things.

    ​Another reason we tore the dash out, was to straighten out the aftermarket wiring. This is the perfect chance to straighten everything out.

    ​More disaster pics, you can finally see the HVAC unit on the passenger side. We had to take all the internal bracing out as well, to be able to pull the HVAC unit out.

    ​The squirrel cage was full of leaves, which was making the HVAC blowing very annoying when It was on.

    The squirrel cage was full of leaves, which I cleaned out by hand and then used the air compressor to flush the small bits out. Further examination showed the resister plug was burnt, which is a common GM problem. More money gone lol!!

    The blower resister was also fried, we bought the resister from Summit Racing for $10.99. We bought the complete wiring harness for the resister from the GM dealer for $35.00, It was easier to do the plug and play harness versus solder the thick wires.

    I took apart the HVAC unit, It is two pieces held together with about 30 T15 torx bolts. It took forever to get it apart, but I'm glad I did because there was all kinds of decay inside the AC condenser as well.

    Glenn thank you for bringing up the cabin air filter thing, I checked on it and his truck has 2 of them. I bet they are filthy, because he smokes in the truck and they've never been changed in the 8 years he's had the truck. I will check them out today, thanks for the heads up!!

    ​I have more pictures, I just have to upload them.

    The original dash was thrown away, as It had a lot of holes drilled in it and switches that were no longer needed. The following pictures are a brand new dash that we bought, Ralph spent about 100 hours sanding, priming, painting, clear coating, buffing, and polishing this piece. He used all OEM paint from PPG, and sprayed through a Devilbiss spray gun. The hole in the top of the dash is for some aftermarket gauges, that you will see later on.

    We had the dash out and cleaned up all the wiring mess, It took just under a week to do. The new dash was installed in about an hour and a half, with two people working steady on it. It really brightens up the interior of the truck. Stay tuned for more updates.
