Default Stock 68 - 72 nova gauge insert?

Hey all,

Does ANYONE sell a stock-style aftermarket or refurbished dash insert for these Novas? All I can find is Covan and other cheap looking stuff or unobtaium-priced metal blanks that need a ton of expensive gauges. I'd like to keep that part stock but mint condition. Alternately, I have one in ok condition (no cracks, etc.) but needs refurbishment like repainting or whatever. Anyone know of vendors that do that? Thanks in advance.

-Jon

We are about to release one for the Nova; basically a blank panel made of carbon. Should have them ready for the 68-72 (and 69 Camaro with a dash pad change) at the end of Jan.

Will it be stock style or Covan style for aftermarket gauges. Am I crazy or does no one sell a stock one? Seems like a market ready to be tapped...

I see them on Ebay all the time. Classic Industries has all of the pieces except the bezel itself..

I have mine thats in real nice shape but Im really hesitant on selling it..lol Unless the price was right..

If you want me to I can keep my eyes pealed and I do know a few members that have switched theres out..Look at places like Steve's Nova Site.

Ok, I'll give those resources a try. I have one that's actually not cut up (and it has A/C so probably hard to find) but it's just kind of worn out looking and needs refurbishing. Maybe I should try that first. I'm just a little hesitant since it's the only one I have and I'm not an expert.

Another option is Redline gauges they can refferbish your exsisting panel...

Keep in mind 1968 is a one year only panel..

Good luck!

Performance Vehicle Works make one from 18 gauge steel and designed to fit with your stock dash pad and fasteners. Quality and Craftsmanship is 2nd to none. I had one of these for a 66-67 Nova and was more than impressed.

Not cheap.... but not made from cheap plastic either !
