Yup. Just look at the stuff on the newer trucks. It didn't get put there for looks.

Nice, all the way around! Did you buy a new chrome molding for around the headliner? If so, where from? It looks great!

I got the headliner chrome from Classic Parts. www.classicparts.com

I get most of my stuff from them because they have a flat rate for shipping, and I usually get my order in 2-3 days.

Wow, I really like the wooden dash cover and the veneers. I think you need to veneer the instrument cluster bezel to finish it off, if you haven't already.
