    Almost finished with my'66! Looking for the center dash trim piece, and a better dash pad would be great too?

    That's a good looking car right there. Tell me about the wheels.

    302 W 5 speed.

    Wheels are just for rollers. The finished wheels should be on next week!

    That, or you're headed to Bonneville. Great paint, love that color. How far down is she lowered?

    G.reat lookin 66 ! I have just had my dash pad out and recovered. Got the upholsterers to mimic the pleating on the seat. Came out great. Bit of a bitch removing and reinstalling it but worth it. Had my new headlining installed at the same time , had to have front and rear screens removed — great to drive like that , lucky the weather was good . Would have really blown my hair back if I had any !! We are just installing a new computer system so I hope I will be able to resize my pictures and then post some. Something that has been beating all of my efforts so far !!

    Sweet 66 ! I put on a dash overlay for a 66 Falcon (same dash) looks great and was a fraction of the cost of a recovered or NOS dash pad.

    I'm not sure how far? I made 3" blocks for the rear. The front I cut a couple coils, and dropped the upper control arm mount like Shelby did. It drives and handles great! Not sure about Bonneville yet, probably going to have it at Hot August Nights in Reno. Del Mar Goodguys is when I'm hoping to debut it!

    Ya I just had my whole interior done. They smoothed out and bondo'd the cracks and covered in leather, but not happy with it. My interior guy said if I found a better dash pad he would redo it?

    Bonneville was just a joke, but OK. Also, there's a member on here (Huevos) that professionally does interiors; you might want to check in with him, just for the heck of it.
