That dash and console are just Awesome (!!!!) . I hope that becomes available to the rest of us , although I'd skip the subwoofer in favor of another smaller built-in storage compartment ....

HI all,

If I am not mistaken, I believe archie sells this very same dash, it should even be listed on his site..... Also, the sub box doesn't come with the dash when you purchase it, that part of the center console is from forum member Fie_ro.....

The dash is now taking on a personality and appearance of it's own--------being tweeked to death! For those who like to just throw-in a dash and leave-be.... it's time to take notes.

That's my line.........

We're still working on the new nose, rear bumper & the interior. So these are in process pictures but you'll get the idea.

We should be pretty well wraped up on the major glass work by the end of the week.

Here's the front.....





Here's the back end, lookin' good.........





The new backend required that we do a different dual exhuast setup......

I agree the dash has fantastic tweekness possibilities. Here is what FieroGTRwideboby did with his V-8 Archie dash.



I plan to do some tweeking myself with my own V-8 Archie dash that i got for my choptop.



I got a heck of a deal on the dash from it's previous owner !

BTW,...great job Archie !

Ok, gotta show you this interior.

It's not finished yet, it's still gotta come out to finalize the install, to do some service instructions & to install the "A" & "B" pillars. But this is how it's going to look.

Happy Holidays

Archie

It would be nice to cut-outse the fake glove/box area and place a Firebird/Camero glove found in some of the swap-dash Fiero conversions? You could then have the glove box door leathered with choptop logo etched in? Since the area is "dead-space" right? After all, you need a place to hold your speeding tickets, right?



Any more holiday pics?

The corner is probably there for a reason, but it looks out of place compared to how the center console, guages, vents, etc are all round..

I wish I was better at photoshop, lol, maybe someone else can 'round' these off just for ideas...

Door handles like that are found in 70s Camaros. The upright piece at least. I'm don't remember the relative size, but I think it could be adapted w/ Archie's crew's skills.

Troy, where did you get your door popping kit from? I got my handles shaved, and been looking for something to do with the interior for buttons, and it would be nice to have a backup battery.
