SS Dash Restoration

I recently finished two more restorations on 70 SS dashes for some of our fellow Team Chevelle Members. One went all the way to Texas and the other will go about an hour away. I have some before and after pictures. I also restored the 70 green dash pad. The green Dash housing had a huge area cut out in the back of the glove box. I had to do a repair on that area. The black dash that was once brown had quite a few issues. The radio holes were gone. It also had many holes on the underside where many things were attached over the years.

Re: SS Dash Restoration


This was my first experience with photo bucket. My pictures did not end up in the order I would have liked them to. I should have better luck next time. If you need a dash restored feel free to Private Message me. I also restore consoles. Thanks for viewing.

Re: SS Dash Restoration

Yes, Robert that is your dash and pad. Your console looks great to. I may post some pictures of it tomorrow. I thank everyone for their compliments.
