These are a few of unique things we use in our restorations
Dash overlay (Carbon Fiber look)
(Currently being backordered)
Tired of that genuine simulated wood looking vinyl stick on thing covering your instrument panel? Check this out This is our new carbon fiber look bezel overlay This panel replaces that pealing up old wood thing and gives you a new look. CNC cut, it is a very good fit. Cost is $75, a cheap way to spruce up the dash. (Brushed aluminum) Carbon fiber look) We offer these bezels with just the original openings also with 2 extra gauge openings between the 2 large original gauges.
Yes, the wait is over, we have two fantastic wheels to choose from. Its been a while looking for a quality, low priced custom wheel to offer for the GMC.
This 16″ leather wrapped, black painted (not shown)”low delta” style steering wheel is very close to the original wheel diameter. The thick diameter leather stitched ring feels great and you bet you can see all the gauges on the dash! What say ye for $295 (check with us on pricing) and it bolts right on. The thing I hate about aftermarket steering wheels is their cheap feel. Not on this one! This is a strong, sturdy, heavy wheel– quality all the way! I suggest setting the angle of the turn signal arm lower when using this wheel. I will step you though the easy job of this when you purchase your wheel– have no fear, you can do it!
The “big boy” wheel, this 18″ leather stitched Stainless steel “low V” wheel bolt right on to our original column. I have this wheel in Larry and love it! How much does it go for? Cheap, its only $369(check with us on pricing) These are in stock now.
And if you want a really special, custom look wheel, try this 18″ wheel out: chrome spoke, leather and burlwood ring– very sexy! Call for price We usually special order this
You won’t find a better pair of wheels — no motorcycle jokes please!

Yes, we have a contoured custom made dash cover for both the early style dashes (73-76) and the late style (77-78) They are available in:
Lead time is 7-10 days so get your order in early. They fit great, send it back if you do not like it.
NOTE: The early style cover pictured above also comes with a separate panel to cover the glove box door however I prefer to not use it–your choice.
Dash AC Upgrade
If you have a 1973-76 GMC, your dash AC probably doesn’t work for crap! How do I know this, well, the vent systems did not do a good job of carrying air from the evaporator to you and thats a fact. How can this be fixed and how can you get good air flow from the dash AC system? There is a “retrofit dash AC kit but you can go through all of that and you will still not have enough air for anything. This unit WILL do the job! We use this tastefull unit that is a second evaporator and blower system that is tied into the dash system– air flow! You get flakes on low, cubes on medium and ice bergs on hi! Yes, the original compressor will handle the system with no problem. Yes, there are more parts & the installation is a bit involved, but this is the main part that makes it happen. This unit costs $375, you will also need to modify your original hoses and tie the unit electrically to the wiring. All together the project should cost you @ $1000– sure its a couple of bucks but just think what it will feel like having a couple of trays of ice cubes raining down on you– so whats that worth? In Florida its worth everything!
Another new unit provides a outboard driver vent with the controls and the ducting. A vast improvement on our first design.
(NOTE: This kit is NOT complete and CANNOT be installed with ordinary hand tools on a weekend while you watch your grandson! There will be several items that needs to be added to this unit and my suggestion is to have a qualified AC man do the work for you. This is the main part you will need to make this all happen. I will be glad to step your tech or you if you like through the installation procedure. No, it is not a snap in fit either, it is an under dash AC unit, a universal unit at that. But with a little work you can have cold air up front and that is what we offer here. If you get this unit and it is not what you want, thats no problem– ship it back but understand what this unit is before you invest the shipping. I love it and have installed several, if you do not like it, hey– we live in America and you do not have to like what I do) In Florida having cold AC is more important than most anything you can think of in the summer, and this kit makes it all happen.
