Interesting......I will wait until its done to give a final opinion. Just one question. Now that the dash is all one piece, how are you going to get all the wiring mounted?

I'd love to do that...well, around the gauge cluster area anyways. I'd love to add an aftermarket speedo/tach and a few other lil necessary gauges surrounding them...just because I've never found an overlay that I've truely liked. I'd want old-school muscle car lookin gauges.

Yours looks pretty bad-ass...but the whole big-screen TV thing is a lil much for me...but I understand it's for show to get points and such. Mad props to ya!

not feeling it at all, would look better if you didn't have a huge box on the passenger side. overly large screens really aren't all that cool IMO

While it looks cool and custom and all. I just can't bring myself to give you any props since every thing done on that car is done by a shop or someone else.


Do it yourself mang! I don't think I could even call it my own car if I had a shop to all my stuff on my car.
