I have and 86 s10 long bed, b4 i got it some one had don't a not so hot radio install that got really hot, and burned the dash up and the wiring.
I have since i got it cleaned all the charred remains out of it put a steering column that will turn in it. i also have put a 350/350 combo in it.
I am wondering if rebuilding the dash is worth while or just go pick up a diff. truck and swap the motor into it since the truck was free so i don't care to trade or scrap this one for a better one like a short bed. How hard is it to make sheet metal dash, with the thought of a roll-cage in the future. either way i have to make a wiring harness, or get a donor one. what would the cost be to have a metal one made?
