Dash rebuild


My dash pad and gauge housing are in sad shape - anyone have suggestions for reproductions?

Also my heater doesnt push much air - anything I can check before I replace the fan motor?

I will also need to replace the wiper switch unless it is serviceable. 

Anyone try replacing the gauge lights with LEDs?

Anything else I should do while the dash is out?


Thanks for any suggestions.

Think I've got a 67 gauge housing and a wiper switch if you need one. I've got access to them for the next 3 weeks.

 Does the fan motor sound like it's running full speed? You could try a jumper wire direct to it from the battery just to make sure it's getting full voltage on high. Has the car been stored where mice could have built a nest in the heater box? The other thing you could check is the cable on the heater control to make sure it's moving the door in the heater box fully to let air flow.

What is wrong with the wiper switch? I don't think they are made to service but  if it's like I am thinking maybe you could bend the crimps and open it up. However if Jmont has a spare to sell you that might be a safer route.

Check the top of the heater box for the resistor. This is what gives you the different speeds for the motor   (in my Impala))
