    Lightbulb62 Chevy Biscane Custom Dash

    Hi Folks

    This is the start of a panel which I made from three separate pieces and (butt welded) together to obtain the shape needed for a left side dash panel.

    At this point the panel has been welded.


    Now with proud of the weld ground we can manipulate the panel and plannish the welds to relieve the heat effected zone.



    With the panel plannished you can clearly see the stress is practicly gone.



    Next I have to round over the edge so it fits in it's new home.



    These panels are one of a few that will transform the inside of a 62 chevy into morfed mid year style corvette dash sort of









    In this photo you can see the 3 dimentional or compound curve in the panel

    Like the look of that, always loved mid year dashes. What gauges are you using?

    Hi Plumpcars
    The sheet steel I am using is 18 gauge cold finished 1008 series, The body it self is 19 gauge but were I do not have to mate the 18g , this was a better choice .
    The Dash is going to resemble the mid year Corvette, but in a exaggerate cartoon sort of way.
    The body has been mildly modified, I myseld did not do the body I was just contrated to do all the sheet metal fab and shaping .
    The body shop that owns the car does first class work, and they are very creative..... I will have to get more photos loaded up on the entire body. It Sports a 500 cui Hilborn injected Chevy......
    Thanks Steve

    Hi Stevie.t
    Ya know there is something about the build part that intrigues me, and after that a quick spin around the block and I am bored......
    I wish I could get over that and you think doing customers cars would cure me . But like to build stuff more than I doo drive them.
    Out of all the hot rods I have owned I only have my 70 Chevy p/u and I will be doing something to that here in the future. It's a driver and I don't wont to take it apart as of yet, so I have another cab and stuff just can't seem to figure on what the heck I want to do......I am drawing a blank........
    Thanks Steve
