Haven't done much to the car recently. I did get a steering wheel in, also have a fiberglass dash is ordered and will be here in the next few weeks.

as far as mounting,whats the backside look like?
its completely flat, not a single tab or anything 😂 I think i'm gonna weld tabs along the bottom of the windshield and one on each side and use dzus fasteners, 4 or 5 in total.

Mocked up the dash last night, really happy with how it is turning out, just need to permanently secure it and make a support bracket of some sort for the instrument cluster.

Haven't touched the Malibu much lately, been trying to finish up my third gen since it's so close. But i started making a panel for gauges in the stock cluster housing. Also I got some Trick Chassis frame braces in. I'll probably have the cluster and dash actually mounted this week.

Over the weekend I went to the Carlisle swap meet and found a manual gear box for $25 not positive if it would even bolt into the car but I bought it anyways. I cleaned it up real good, extracted a broken bolt, re-greased it and put some paint on it, now i just need to get the right pitman arm and steering joint for it.
