The owner wanted upgraded instrumentation in the car, so we approached the dashboard next. First, the top of the dash required some refinishing, so it was stripped, bodyworked, and then went into the paint booth for a re-spray.





New satin black is ready to go!

Next, a Detroit Speed steel dash face insert was used to house a full set of Autometer Carbon Fiber Gauges. We’ll install Volts, Fuel, Speed, Air / Fuel, RPM, Oil Pressure, Temp, and Vintage Air A/C controls in this panel.



Design sketched out



Measure 3 times!



Holes cut, A/C control going in for test fit



All holes cut, bodywork done and sprayed in satin charcoal to compliment the trim colors on the car.



Note 3 LED light holes above center gauge for turn signals and high beams.



All gauges installed and wired, with a weatherpack connector for easier installation.

The dash pad changed colors to black, and the rest of the interior was reinstalled.





Trunk carpet reinstalled



There was a thought to go with a carbon fiber Anvil rear wing, but the owner decided against it and went back to silver.



It looked cool, but it’s all a matter of personal preference.



Finally the wheel tubs were detailed with epoxy, and Imron.

We set the ride height and had the car aligned, put a new base calibration in the Holley ECM, and took it out for a spin! Looks sweet!
