    I think you are single handily raised the price of these trucks ten fold!!! Way to turn an ugly duckling into a swan!
     
  13. Worked on getting the dash in the truck this weekend, stripped the old paint off the dash and got it fitted. then I tack into place and started to fill in the gaps.

    Also found the transmission ill be running, picking that up on tuesday. Its
    a NV3500 from a 4.3 V6 s10 with a Hydraulic clutch.

    Anyways heres the pictures of the dash. Also got the center filled with sheet metal. Dash is going to stay smooth the ignition switch and light switch will be mount off to the side under the dash.

    Thought it was sick then... just getting better!
