Back at the Popular Hot Rodding tech center, we got to work rehabbing the instrument panel that we got from fellow Laguna nut, Larry Belcher. The Laguna's panel is covered with a fake wood laminate, which we peeled off to reveal a textured black plastic. We removed the HVAC controls, the vent, and the radio face, then created white cardboard templates to cover the holes. Once the templates' fit was double-checked, we used the cardboard pieces to create plastic block-off plates with a similar texture as the IP. With these glued in place with epoxy, we hosed the whole thing down with Dupli-Color's black vinyl and plastic paint.
