That is funny. When I bought our car it had a bee colony living in the cylinder head intake ports.

Thanks for posting the photos of the instrument cluster you scored on eBay. I didn't know about those metal grounding straps between the switches and the back of the dash panel. I found a set at my local salvage yard so I should be good to assemble my cash this weekend!

Yeah this dash panel is like a time capsule, super stoked. Ran out of time over the winter for the dash work and plan to hit some car shows this summer before I tear back into it!
