Looking for dash / gauge cluster ideas.

Completely tore my dash panel down to nothing. My plan is to rebuild with sheet metal, etc....

Looking for ideas....any dash panel build threads floating around.

About 20 years ago, four wheeler mag did a 4.3 swap into an 85 longbed. Did custom guahe pod. Awesome, IMHO

Either reinstall the dash you pulled or go find one from the pick and pull. Creating a new dash is not worth it.

Bet you could get pics of it with out the label. Half your posts are related to toyota fiberglass. Why?
edit- if you are just copying the pics from their site how come the [img] code is from toyota fiberglass's website?

Same fake profile crap different year Corey? From my experience,
your fiberglass work are about as good as your word, rough around the edges, full of holes and not what you expect from someone that talks so highly of his work. You burned me in every trade deal I did with you. You sent me a prototype POS inner trekker hatch cover instead of a finished piece, as promosed, that didn't fit and looked like crap. I had to put everything I got from you in a trash can.

Playing stupid suits you well Corey. Being banned from this site twice isn't enough? Maybe "your brother' can get drunk again and post some more porn up from your computer.

He knows well what yours and many others look like. Stealing pictures from other truck sites and people and ghosting them with his site's name is what he does try try to pretend like he really knows something about Toyota trucks. That and setting up fake accounts all over the web to pimp his fiberglass.

Ocdropzone is a mod on another site (a dam good one) and he and I were both mods and "owners" (according to Corey) on Corey's site. That is until Corey decided that he knew more about everything Toyota or Trekker related than the two of us that actually did the work and research. It was all about getting a few bucks out of us and taking our knowledge to claim as his own.

Corey is now apparently a Trekker Guru, lame. Just because you know how to turn an 83 Toyota Trekker into an early 90's 4runner doesn't make you knowledgeable about Trekkers. STFU and look in the mirror Corey...you wear the biggest ass hat around.

That looks pretty slick, but are those switches mounted on the lower face of the dash? Can't tell from the pics, but it looks like they could be bumped by the passenger's knees.

From the angle of the pic I would say the switch's are in the center-ish of the dash.

:yes: at least close to. Plus the dash is so much closer to the windshield there is lots of room. You can see the front of the seat on the pic.
