Kinda hard to see but here they are. Engine side blasted primed and trim blacked. Tire side is Rhino lined smoother than a pickup box and then UV sprayed for easier cleaning.aka mali - 1977 Chevelle Malibu Classic Progress Photo's aka Mali - Page 3 Chevel25aka mali - 1977 Chevelle Malibu Classic Progress Photo's aka Mali - Page 3 Chevel26aka mali - 1977 Chevelle Malibu Classic Progress Photo's aka Mali - Page 3 00810aka mali - 1977 Chevelle Malibu Classic Progress Photo's aka Mali - Page 3 01010

Thanks Budman- they look good. I'm going to try it out while mine are still off the car. That looks like a nice tight grain like they did it at GM did you roll it on or spray it?

No i took it to Rhino Lining. It is a franchise like Line-x or many other ones out there. They normally do spray in pickup bed liners. I had them do the whole underside of my body before I put it on the frame. The underside looks just like the fender wells. Should cut way down on the road noise between that on the B-Quiet I put inside the car.

My "New" Old Dash from a 73 Monte donor (had it since last summer) just now refurbishing. Going w/ a Dash Cap that I ordered. Will post more before & after pics when it's completed. Will be fixing the HVAC face plate, blacking-out the chrome on the vents, swapping out the idiot light gauge cluster for a working gauge & tach unit & removing the wood grain veneer....Giggity.....

Mali I used a headlight polisher to claen up the scratches on my gauge lenses if that helps. Can't tell if you have any but if so it worked great.

I've never seen a dash like that. Had an SS Elco with round gauges etc, but not as nice as that one, and no wood-grain either.

I don't need any wood grain, but thanks anyway. That SS is long-gone !! My Elco project is a '75, with a '77 Classic interior, and it has the wood grain dash insert. The wood grain looks OK in some instances, but seems better without it in some others.

I think you did good on your dash repair. Some of the dash vents are available new. Not cheap, but about 28 bucks each for the ones I bought. I still have some used ones also.

Thanks Bill. I got some big plans for the dash, not done yet. The repair to the the vent support was with some JB Stick epoxy. It cost pennies, literally & I formed it on there & shaved it smooth with some small files. The hardest part was getting the little vent louvers back in correctly with out them coming out of alignment. The assembly is drying now & I got rid of the chrome & the chrome "pinstripe" around the outside opening. Going all black like the look of the drivers side. Will post some after pics later.

The dash was in terrible condition, but salvageable & better than the one that came w/ the car. I never did take real "before pics" but it was a very involved process. {I'm thinking about doing dash customizing as a side business eventually.} I bought a dash cap but am not using it. Very disappointed with the fitment. There was at least a 3/4" gap at the end near where it would butt up to the windshield and I did test fits on both dash pads I have. If it weren't for that I would have used it as the quality was decent.

LOL- You'd save big on shipping! I'm hoping to have mine done by end of next week. I'll post a pic & you can judge. I'm not doing anything "fancy"...just cool.

Here's the bezel after cleaning. Still needs to be painted & some small touching up.
aka mali - 1977 Chevelle Malibu Classic Progress Photo's aka Mali - Page 3 P1020617

The acrylic was "polished". Lots of scratches but got it to an acceptable level. Smaller ones need more work & were worse than the larger. I've already got about 4 hours into them.

Well scored some gauges for the old gal. I think these may have come out of an El- Camino (not sure of year?)...JB, Pila...any insight?
The pod is not in the best shape & needs a little work & the C-board....well, we'll see (take a look-LOL). Does anyone have a pic (or can post?) of the correct oil send and/or temp send unit with the proper harness connections? I'm guessing I'll have to make some mod's to the harness & wires in the pin connector behind the pod. All & all I'm pretty content with it as the faces are in excellent condition. Interestingly, take a look at the fonts on these two clocks- the 1st is from the 73 M/C idiot light set I picked last year & the 2nd came w/ this set.

the cluster you have is from a 75 elky monte chevelle.speedo only goes to 100.

the fonts on the clock (cluster) were different. 73/74 were the same (skinnier),75-77 were the same (bolder). did not matter if idiot lights or gauges.

you only need to switch out the temp sender.

the oil light STAYS an oil light when switching to gauges.
