    I thought all SS' had climate control? Also the VZ sedan looks like it has a vy dash. I might be wrong though.

    Should do the window surrounds too.

    But nice touch in hindsight.

    Surely there must be someone that could make it up for it? Even just a matter of cutting and shutting a sedan surround to fit. Oxy weld, prep and polish. An idea as such.
