Center dash panel with horizontal woodgrain insert...
« on: March 06, 2009, 03:01:58 PM »
What year would this panel be good for, with the woodgrain horizontal pattern  67-69 ?  On mine there is a kinda "spider-webbing effect" behind the insert... Is this a residual glue that was in fact used 30 years ago or???
Thanks!!

Good morning!!!  Here are a couple of pics of the center dash panel for non a/c cars.
Need to get the apllication(s) straight i.e. years or years and either Firebird or Camaro.
Can't figure what the spider webbing effect is - maybe old glue??? I had a couple of First Gen. Firebirds and 3 First Gen. Camaros.  Can't remember where this was taken from!!!
Thanks BertFam and CVKueber

The first picture is 1967 Firebird. The second picture is what a bezel looks like when the applique has been removed, and yes, that's old glue.

For comparison, here are a few photos of a '67-68 Camaro NOS instrument panel trim plate (part #3891665).  The date on the box is 3-19-75.
