Re: Chevelle SS vs Monte Carlo Dash
I was figuring that they were used to mount the Monte Carlo woodgrain in. Sorry about the pic, that was obtained off of ebay. I'll send you a pic of my dash when I get home from work that has the circular indents on the back face of the dash that I thought were filled. I saw that other pic from ebay that was a monte dash and figured that those holes were for mounting the woodgrain, and that someone filled mine in to disquise it as a chevelle ss dash.
Hope that makes sense.
Silver chevelle, I posted in my member showroom the pics(thanks to Bowtie-72) of the slotted holes that I was referring to. The are actually in the dash housing itself, not the heater control. If you look closely you will see them. I wanted to see if yours had them or not. The monte carlo ss dashes have them, but wanted to see if the chevelle ss dash is different. Those slots hold the woodgrain to the dash. Plus to make things more confusing I have read from other posts that different year monte carlo dashes used different methods (holes/slotted holes/adhesive) to mount the woodgrain to the dash face. Just wanted to clear this up, so people can stop passing monte carlo ss dashes off as chevelle ss dashes.
