Re: dash pad and vintage air

I added Vintage to my Z and cut stock dash pad using the instructions but orginal pad was beginning to warp bad, I bought the factory AC pad and installed with the factory louver. Go ahead , stone me for this, had to, too much dirt and hot weather out here in sandland , tx. .

Re: dash pad and vintage air

In my opinion, dash pads are a commodity. Do what ever it takes to look good.

Re: dash pad and vintage air

Did you guys see the Air Conditioning article in the new Hotrod? They specifically use a 69 Camaro with Vintage Air in one of the sidebars. I've wanted one for years. Not sure about pulling the dash apart or taking the right fender off again. (it's an age thing)
