At the moment. I'm not planning on pancaking it but this is an ever evolving project so you never know.

I just got done installing a '58 Chev p/u dash into it and am using a flamed aftermarket gauge cluster. To make it fit better, I cut and widened the hump over the speedo by almost 2". I would recommend doing that to yours if you want it wider rather than changing your entire dash.

soooo, i guess I will have a 58 chevy cab, with a 57 gmc dash and front clip. could be worse. i just love that gmc front end, and I plan on using a cluster from a 2001 chevy p/u, so the gmc dash would work better because the hump over the speedo is wider. dennis
