Man I can't get over the amount of progress you've made since I last looked at your post just after you did your floor pans. I just today read through the entire post and nearly s*** myself when I read it was bedliner. I just previously skipped through it looking at pictures and I'm amazed how well it turned out!

I had blue LEDs in my dash and they looked sweet. The ones I had blew my fuse. I replaced the fuse and they didn't work right when I put them back in so I'm sticking with the reg bulbs for now. Also I painted the back of the guage panel with chrome spray paint works great.

Thanks, haha i was gonna do chrome too!!

Well here's some more progress.
I may switch to white needles, also sprayed graphite on the speedo cable, didn't work very well, so I'll just get a new one from Autozone and swap it out when I can get a few hours in my bro's garage.

Hey here is a idea for ya on that hood..I saw some one say mat and resin it and that wont last.. They make a panel bonding agent that comes in tubes for a caulk gun.. Go to your local paint supply/body shop supply store and ask them about a bonding agent for body panels and skins .. They will know what your talking about and the brand.. Use that xxxx in bonding the support structure to the hood . I promise you in will not come free and it will hold together FOREVER.

Sorry guys for the lack of updates, trying to get the GTO ready for the upcoming shows and been having problems with the new gauges the speedo and tach work great, the center gauges are not working very well. even when I swap back to the originals.
So pretty sure it's something wrong on the circuit wiring mat on the back of the new doghouse.


Anywho, snapped a couple pics of my babies, sorry both are dirty.

Mike love your cars, I have two buddies with GTO's and I love riding in them. I test drove one when they first came out, and loved it. One of my buddies GTO makes over 680hp at the wheels and is a beast. That thing sounds mean to.
