Gotta dash

This truck is fitted with all new gauges in a custom dash. The interesting thing is the company I purchased the panel from made a brushed finished dash, a polished dash and a brushed black anodized dash … but no polished black anodized dash. I spoke to the manufacture and asked if they could make me a polished black anodized dash and after some hemming and hawing, they agreed to give it a try. After many nail biting weeks, the dash panels arrived and they looked great!

I think they are going to add them to their catalog, but this truck got the very first one.

  1. What company made the Dash Bezel Insert ??
    Honestly, I can’t remember. It’s been years since this build. I do remember we had the company polish it before applying the black anodize. They didn’t really want to do it that way but I thought it looked better that way. I did do a search for Billit dash for 71 c10 and a couple popped up but they aren’t the exact same as this one but you may like it just as good.
