i'm gonna be putting a new dash in my car this year and was wondering if anybody has used the chrome sheets to make one and if it causes problems with glare from the sun or track lites

Funny you should mention that 17j, I just bought a sheet of that chromed alum at JRs yesterday, for the very same thing. So I don't have any insite on the glare problem.

This aluminum seems a little more rigid than the painted stuff. Not sure if it's the chrome plating (if that's even what it is) or a different alum grade.

Bent a piece on SCS's brake today. Looks REALLY nice...

i just built a chrome dash for my car. it looks really nice. my chassis builder has always had chrome dashes in his mod without glare problems. if you think about it...we sit back so far in the cars i dont think the glare would ever shine that far back?

i stock how much was it i heard it was twice as much as the painted stuff i found the painted in iowa falls for 40 for a 4x10 sheet. i sit farther ahead then most do we have to run the stock steering collum so i have to be up a ways mine only comes back 16 inches instead of the max 24 that imca alows
