HOW TO Extend your F100 Dash to Fit A/C | 1953-56, 1967-72 Trucks

A/C Valances are a tricky product-- we've never quite found one that we're fans of. We would always have to modify it to the point where the purchase didn't really make sense. This valance is classic, simple, and clean, emulating the same traits as the 1953-56 Fords do. These are made of durable fiberglass, and designed to either paint over or wrap in leather or vinyl to match your interior.

We offer them in both standard and high temperature options.  FFG EXHAUST HANGERS (Standard): https://www.fatfendergarage.com/produ... FFG EXHAUST HANGERS (High...
