    I've got a 1965 el camino someone welded the dash from a 1955 in before I bought it for 25 $100 bills, it looked so good being a silly kid I figured thats just how it came from the factory until I saw another just like it, and they were like, woah man!

I have the gauge cluster "surround housing" already stitched. Now I am stuck. The sides (driver and...

    Ok so I finally decided to start the whole dash/wiring replacement on my elky. One big problem...the entire passenger side was rusted to ****!!! I'm not talking about the dash pad, I mean the actual dash panel that's made of metal and welded to the body! Worst part is that no one makes these...
