Did something different w/ Dash & Glove Box...

I had to spray some flake for another project so i thought while i was at it i'd mess around with this....
dash before, a well used faded OEM dash...

flaked w/ glove box:

cleared

close up


i'm also going to do the steering wheel and some door panel inserts, i'm going to pinstripe the pieces, i MAY use some 12k white gold leaf to border the dash and glove box in the area where the chrome was (on the dash). Still deciding on rest of scheme, black dash or victory red, red carpet or black and i'm for sure going to use a red seat. Combine this with a satin black paint with candy flaked flames on the front and i think it will be pretty visually loud....

It looks great! I like the pin stripe idea.

Any ideas on what to replace the old emblem on the glove box with? Something chrome, could just say Chevrolet?

That is very nice! Agree with the chrome emblem idea.

Re: Did something different w/ Dash & Glove Box...

Decided to do the border 67 style, orion silver. I'm going to use a chrome 67-68 glovebox emblem to cover up the holes. Next up is colorsand & polish (on glove box) then pinstriping on both.




The camera flat refuses to pick up all the bling!
These and the steering wheel are gonna be the next flake victims...

Re: Did something different w/ Dash & Glove Box...

i can't photograph how much this blings....any suggestions?



the reason i had to spray the flake....the beginnings of a Pinstriper's get-together exchange panel with 18 louvers and the same flake, it will get some lettering and some gold leaf, along with a updated flying eyeball...
