    There was a thread about a month ago with a full write up / pictures / part numbers. He put in all autometer into the stock bezels. Do a search in here and in "Garage". Maybye look for AUTOMETER. He said it ran him about $500 in gauges.

    Thanks for the information.. Your Blazer is very nice.. good work!! Where did you get the dash panel?? I was going to use a new stock plastic one and cut to fit, but your billet dash looks very good and seems to be easier than hasseling with a stock one...

    Thanks

    I got the billit dash from www.lmctrucks.com part #38-1104 for $119.00 keep this in mind it goes over your stock dashboard bezel. I didn't know this when i bought it but it turned out ok.. <font color="red"> 1 FN HI K5 </font color>
