thanks for the warm welcome guys! im planning to do a poor mans resto on the pathy, keeping everything original looking

ive debated doing a dash swap only because ive got a red/maroon round dash.. but ill get the truck running/legal first

i was looking for a nissan beater so i can cut up the hardbody, but the beater is so nice i cant beat it up

It DOES exist :lol:

 

The round/square dash clusters are a little different (cable speedo vs electronic speedo comes to mind) but I know swaps have been done. I'd be inclined to stick with square just for the extra gauges, but maybe the dubious honor of having the only rapist red round dash known to NPORA would be worth doing the swap. :laugh:

"AH3" red is the one that usually has rapist red interior :lol:

 

"Members rides" at the bottom of the forum selection screen is where the builds are. You may have to change your "search settings" to a longer time frame to get some good results though as it may have been a wHile since some people updated theirs.

i think it would be great in a 2door pathy, but the square dash still has sweet gauges, its vents and factory radio.

 

stock red interior, 94+

Dear Gods, it's even uglier than I thought! :lol:

 

I know unccpathfinder (something like that' I'll verify) did a dash swap and wrote up on it, so he is at least 1 source of good info. I just buy the vehicle with the right dash already mounted... :D

good idea on the tail gate. and the red is awesome. i searched for ever till i finally found a maroon on maroon or "rapist red"pathy. also cuz all of my salvaged parts from my wrecked 87 hb were that color.

im a square dash guy and red interior guy.

Your love of rapist red hereby banishes you from our forum!

 

On a serious note, statistics in my local junkyards tell me rapist red are hated so much that the owner intentionally crashes for insurance purposes, or cannot keep his eyes on the road from all the evil red surrounding him and wrecks.

You'll have to ban Nunya as well. Good luck with that... :D

California. We have all the red interiors you'd ever want. Except the round dashes. But I rarely get a round dash of any color in the local yards. Probably because I own a round dash.

Duh! I had to drive 90 miles to get an Xterra roof rack. Why? Because I wanted one. If I hadn't, I would have been tripping over them piled on my front lawn...
