1. Blue bucket seats: Looking for year correct blue buckets. I know I can get upholstery and change seats from another color, but the plastic is still an issue so I prefer to find color correct and will pay accordingly. A pic of the seats I'm looking for is below.
2. Blue seat belts: I've seen the new sets that can be purchased, but it seems they all come with a 3rd piece that mounts in a location not preset on El Caminos. Truthfully could just use the part that bolts to the floor near the center console for both sides.
3. V6 tachometer: I currently have a V6 but plan to LS swap or go with a 355 within the next year. Would like a V6 tach for the time being.
4. 8.5 10 bolt posi: This isn't a necessity, but more of something I would like to get. I know they aren't cheap.....

OEM tachs are the same for V6/V8 gasoline engines in G bodys - there's a jumper to switch between the two settings.
