You know Pat, I went with the white cause that's what the car had. I later came to realize after Don posted, 75-76 had the metal rivets in the outrockers. Dave Cheeks car also has the metal (1 owner car). Certianly not doing another rivet hunt thats for sure to find the metal ones. Seems to look ok for now. I'll pass the royal rivet septor to someone else if they want to find a metal match lol.

Thanks Geoff. Spent alot of hours cleaning it. Had most of it out at one point to get to things easier. I repainted the seat handles, that black bar under the seats, and a trim peice behind the drivers seat. I have a yellow light somewhere. I should probally put it in like you did. The green is definetly too bright. Your orange car looks nice as well. Hows the 2.1 motor? Alot more punch over stock?

Tod,
I, for one, thank you sincerly for your rivet endeavors. They worked perfectly with no trimming. You da' man! Down the road, owners are going to lament not stocking up on these!

The metal ones shouldn't be too difficult. And, if they're not metric who could tell the diff?

I have a '74 Bumblebee and want to reinstall the orginial AM/FM radio. The dash opening was cut bigger to accept an after market CD player. Are there any type of original dash plates or faces that might have been cut out to make the opening bigger? The following link shows dash with after market CD player installed.
Thanks for any info and help.

I'm a little confused here! You want to reinstall the original radio, right?

The dash opening was cut LARGER so the aftermarket unit could be installed...

I think you want to make the opening smaller, not larger. There are a number of faceplates that show up on Ebay, which should work. You can't make the current one smaller, so look inot that.

Or else, I'm missing something here.....

Sorry for the confusion, kinda new here. Yes I want to reinstall the orginal radio, and the dash was cut larger. I do want to make the opening smaller. I'll check out Ebay. Thanks.

Curious - what are the wires laying on the floor?

Eric, don't you have any pics of the Green 75's interior???


I have a few photos but, for some reason, none of them ever did the interior justice. Here's one. The interior is much better looking than this in my opinion. The blacks are much blacker, and the carpet is darker.

Not sure if you noticed, but the car is for sale again.

hi, looks great!! i'm looking for the console without the guages. can you help? thanks. 75 914
