Classic Dash announces a new molded ABS composite dash panel in three finishes for GM G-body cars, rear-wheel drive iterations that were produced from late 1981 until early 1988 including the El Camino and Malibu. The G-body panel is clean and stylish, and the lightweight material is impregnated with a UV inhibiter that protects it from sun damage. A Thermwood 5-axis CNC high-speed router consistently trims the dash panels to within 0.005-inch. The panels are available in carbon fiber, brushed aluminum, or black finishes. Gauge selection includes several variations from Auto Meter and Classic Instruments. Auto Meter kits include wiring harness from gauges to factory loom, LED turn signal indicators, and high-beam and emergency brake light indicators.
