Wasn't happy with the dash pad so i put a new one in it, along with heater defrost outlets.





Also, install led bulbs in dash. What a difference, much brighter.

Looking good. Where did you pick up the LED lights for your dash ? Did they come with the sockets or did you have to use your originals ?

Nice score. You seem to be pretty lucky, when it comes to finding new stuff for your car.

Most guys with NOS parts want more than what a car is worth. Wish I had some friends like that.

Buckets are in. Those are 1972 seats in a 1971. I already had a nice 1972 back seat so i had the bucket recovered in matching pattern.

Looks good. My car is a 72, and when I got it, she had 71 seats in her. I spent a year locating a good set of 72 seats and finally found a set, 2 hours from home.
