did you have to cut the bezel or did the gauges fit completely into the space behind without cutting?

I made the part the gauges are in.  My car is a factory non a/c car so there was a stupid little compartment there. (A/c cars had the drivers side vent there). My custom plate uses the factory holes that would have held the vent.  I just reread your question, they fit in the space as they are small.

Not crazy custom or anything, but I put my 2" gauges into the round holes of the dash.  Cluster had to be drilled to get the temp sensor (mechanical) through.  Thank god I didnt do it to my original bezel or cluster.
The cluster, bezel and Aiwa radio (benzi box, remember them) will be going up for sale as a package eventually.  So someone doesnt have to cut up there original one.

A couple things here.  I made the spoiler out of a old shelf that I was going to scrap.  All I used was a bench vice, cut off wheel, and a drill.  It came out nice enough that i had it powder coated for $40.00 & "highlited" it with silver pinstripes.  Also I have a '76 elcamino grille, & the headlight bezels are plastidipped.

Its a little easier than what others around here are going through trying to get the OE stuff to work.

I agree. I really like this one as far as the gauge layout and how the panel looks. It looks really high quality.

Working on an idea for a custom grill. Anyone know the length and height of a 74 Chevelle grille?

Here is what I was thinking of using.
Custom part show off Oct10
16"x48": $44.99
Powder Coated: +$10

The hole may not be large enough for the look that I am wanting, but you kinda get the idea.

Have you ever removed your grille?  Its a little more involved than filling a opening.

I plan to find a spare and cut it the center out. Does the 74 come apart? I thought it was just one piece.

I plan for it to be a cross between the grill I designed for this one and the laguna grille below. No lights in the grille though, like the laguna. I am thinking about hiding red led's in behind the grille.

anodized aluminuminunim... k.  lol.   Point is, it comes off.   I like the sound of that.  The center part you have, has the look I want, but I want it sunk in about 3 inches.  Two chrome strips or billet will go across.  Not Anodized aluminum... lol.  People are so picky...
