Yeah, I was just joking. If anyone criticizes my truck I'll do a big block burnout beside there's and throw some tar on it!!!! hehehe

Re: And so it begins................

Thanks! The gauge panel was about 200.00 shipped on ebay. A man named Edd Dial rebuilds them and puts the white vinyl on the gauges, new lens, new bezel and he gaurantees them. He'll also give you 25.00 for your old panel. Tell him Travis sent you if you order one.

Nah most cops aren't that worried about mirrors. Besides just push it to the floor and let fate take over!

Re: And so it begins................

Thanks, and before someone teases me about the pink dash lights, let me just say that they only look that way in the pic!! You can order the panel with several different color bulbs and I ordered mine with the purple bulbs. They're actually a maroon color when you turn them on. I don't know why they look pink in the pics.

Yeah I did. The 7" Rallys are what was on it when I got it. I put the Chrome wagon wheels on it.

My father is looking for set of 8" rallys for his truck though.

It's a 95 Chevy king cab. 5on5. It has the original rallys on it now but they don't come out far enough.
