Dashboard pics

When looking at new truck buys, hacked up dashes are always a deal breaker not to mention doors drilled for speakers. Show me your before and after pictures of the transformation from hacked to OEM looking.
I still bought this: Cup holder, need to find another one.???????????

I like the fire extinguisher....I carry two in my Honda's trunk now. How did you mount that?

Drill hole and have a bracket on the other side of the floor pan or weld on a nut to the floor pan?

Re: Dashboard pics

A hacked dash isn't a big deal if you plan on doing any paint work to the interior. It's only metal after all.

Really nice repair on that dash

I recently sold an 86 C10 "work truck" that had some nice patina on the hood. Also had some ugly rust elsewhere. That's the 'rub' (no pun intended) in terms of real patina. It's hard to have good patina without some bad side effects.

cheers

Re: Dashboard pics

In this day and age I wouldn't sweat a cut dash for a stereo. There is no real option for a stereo for the original stereo opening. I know that there are expensive conversions pieces that are essentially one offs but face the facts. These are trucks not corvettes. My truck has 47k original miles and the dash is uncut other than a few switch holes. If I could acyually hear a radio over the exhaust the dash would be cut. I am actually sick of looking at the hole in the dash.

I couldn't make myself cut my dash, so I put a decent radio in a Highliner headliner.

After



The radio in the hole is just for looks.

Hope you like it.

If you do a search on it on the site there are a bunch of others who have installed them and put up pics.

I did a build thread on it a couple of years ago. It's fabbed up out of 16 Ga cold rolled so if you weld it's not hard to do. Here's a link to the thread:
