Forgive my ignorance, is that original colour from GM ?
No, I am doing my own thing! It is made by Spraymate! They call it "Blue Grotto" I agree the colour is amazing!!
Spraymate is a local business near Meyerton/Dale Side.

Re: Customizing Dashboards

If your car is a 1960 Valiant as in your profile I wouldn't touch the dash at all... It's too cool .., Good advice! I personally changed my dash without drilling or cutting!
