Yeah- I've read a lot of posts about fiberglassing custom panels and dashes and all that. It's definitely cool. I could give it a shot, I guess; But, of course I'll try the easiest (and cheapest) way first. I've seen OEM, and new reproduction gauges for sale; I can buy an entire instrument panel, with all the gauges and the lense, brand new for around $790 (on ebay).... The problem with that is it's $790!!
If I could get away with putting some non-Chevelle specific new gauges from Summit, or someone similar, in the original instrument panel; and only have to make a few modifications, or metal brackets or something, that would be grand.
Once I get the time to start tinkering with it more, I'll be able to pull the cluster apart, and see what I have to work with. Hopefully I'll figure something out.
Thanks for the reply
