    I'm just selling the graphics to install over the clock face , its a 2 piece graphic first the black backing goes on the clock face then the white numbers go on to the black backing . I'm not at this time building the entire tach conversion. I just don't have the time. I've never been so busy at work these days .

    How was The install of the decal on the clock face ? It’s good to have a steady hand. If you can find a tack like the 2” one I used, the new needle fits on to its shaft nicely. The 2 1/2 tach I first had didn’t work nearly as well. Check eBay for them !

    It wasn't to bad just took my time making sure to line everything up nice. The material used is awesome i got lucky and had a spare cluster without a clock so there is no hole to fill in. I'll be searching around for a small tac thanks for the help again.

    Hey the bezel with no clock adjustment hole is the perfect choice for the tach conversion ,It looks perfect ! I’m going to have to keep my eye out for one of those now. Keep me up dated with pictures.

    Have you found a good source for the stainless button that's mounted to the needle yet?

    Well finally I’m installing the the tach . I thought what the hell let’s install the 8 track as well ,That part is easy ,, it will be in combination with a modern pioneer System . what’s coming next Will probably upset a few people. I’m going with a custom auto sound dual voice coil 4x10 in the dash with a 6x9 dual voice coil custom auto sound speaker in the back seat . I’m fitting the left and right dash speakers with a couple of new 4” speakers in the dash . The trunk has a small 10 inch sub and I have 6” 2 ways in the front kick panels ( no there not the original panels, I still have those ! ) . I have always loved my music , Roy Orbison on a hot August night at a drive-in was always a winner for me . Here are a few pictures , i’m about halfway through installation . The more modern pioneer deck is going into the glove box .

    The plastic backseat cover Thing ( i’m not sure the name but moparts reproduces it ) was very brittle . This is what I ended up doing. 6C54C99F-B3DB-42FB-9E84-8D29EF9D9FC8.jpeg 8DA430E0-B7C1-4E71-8348-14309374B379.jpeg 27FADBD9-C01C-4969-B5AB-D90B77B00BFF.jpeg D60480BA-D4F7-4BCF-8730-A7181E16B237.jpeg ED1B6919-8B63-4848-AD3D-22C62B3D2A89.jpeg 6CF1BD08-00E4-4E03-9FBC-C394CE8E5683.jpeg E58763E6-D772-43EC-A45E-D8EE4D54FA4F.jpeg 1C732E0A-E4B9-459B-8DC2-620B50363F9A.jpeg

    The hard black plastic upper backseat cover was very brittle and it was in very bad shape on my car so I just trimmed off the broken pieces and went with a home made speaker cover for the back . I tried to keep it as clean looking as I could . I realize moparts sells the cover but I haven’t ordered one yet . 7939D8E7-2D90-465C-9983-BC116CCB1A4A.jpeg EB37B02F-BA8B-4C5F-94B9-E554CDD737A7.jpeg 4F80F8A5-078C-427F-9BDC-0BC6B3630DC3.jpeg AF6F3364-7F52-4372-99D0-8F287BA08FC8.jpeg CABE5AD7-C878-432E-AFA7-92A7C69AE828.jpeg

    I guess I should mention the dual voice coil speakers allow me to have both left and right stereo Into 1 speaker . This works quite well with These old cars. I just want good tunes , I don’t need the neighbours to listen to my music . Unless they really want to

( these are not the original panels I have been using a couple from a parts car ) 91CA04BC-BE0B-4756-A8BE-00141683C32E.jpeg DEB5768F-9C32-40FF-8424-36BD7E3F0B27.jpeg AF67BC05-595C-4330-9B6F-4FC5F64F5B6D.jpeg 3E988100-8C9B-4FF0-AF67-4A9E3E15C4F6.jpeg

    I cleaned up the dash bezel parts And polished out all the cloudiness and scratches from the clear speedometer and tachometer lenses with and optical grade rubbing compound . I used A MOLOTOW liquid chrome Marker for the chrome detailing around the switches , speedometer and tachometer edging . This stuff was damn expensive but looks good!! It works well for detailing small chrome plastic parts . The next step is to have the clock adjust hole filled in by a friend of mine that owns an automotive vinyl / plastic restoration shop . That man does wonders with grills , dash bezels and interior parts . 4C725D4C-247A-46EE-B862-730911DA1CD7.jpeg 4F57E50C-8F6D-4145-A9EC-8A5C2A8E87F6.jpeg 6440904E-A34E-4D90-80F5-D7678D8564BF.jpeg 8F3715B4-C975-427D-8C82-4DAE53D2E962.jpeg 3170E110-A52E-45D7-AC14-7655E64652C5.jpeg 8C915254-2353-4A39-92CF-BF70D97BA13F.jpeg 57C8DE84-BC7D-41B6-88F5-C1A876F7814E.jpeg 23CCE939-1026-4987-86E7-D351C73CFCFF.jpeg

    Can you give a quick run down of how the dash comes apart ? On a B body, you need to pull the windshield in order to access the screws, which, you've obviously not had to do.

    Thanks
