I see they cleaned up the dash significantly. Out of curiosity, what was the pull knob for on the right, and the story behind the ashtray? Also, did they mention if they would leave the badge on the right in or leave it out?

Good luck with your restoration, what a great comeback so far!

it's Blue. The dash is new from Trevor. I would assume the ashtray is from an early owner that smoked. I had the medallion gold plated and will be put back in the same spot. Interesting, 356 Works just completed another Aquamarine metallic 56 speedster , it also had the same medallion. I think that we are down to weeks and the car is going to move from body and paint to mechanics and assembly. Still in Chicago.
