Why not? If that suits you, then go for it. It will make the inside of your car less boring, but how hard would it be to put your arm around your sweetie? JB

Those gauges do look sick. I am thinking about putting a custom dash in my car too, i was wondering how much work this would entail? and what would be the biggest problems i might have? Any feedback would be great, thanks!

So, I'm thinking of scrapping the whole original dash and using it as a frame for a fiberglass fabrication. Anyone have any experience with this? Also, does anyone have measurements of the dash? I've got the bezel in the garage, but am unable to actually measure it right now. My car is undercover which is under about a foot of snow right now, so any help would be appreciated. I just need WxLxH. Another idea I had was going to the junkyard to find a newer model car and yanking the dash out of that (possibly a non-Chevy model.)
