Got mine in,, Maybe I am a picky fucker, but I didn't think it was a generic cover to go over your existing dash, but a replacement dash. Now I have to find a dash for this one to cover it????

Nope, read the instructions, it is a replacement, but not an exact OE copy.

Step1,, "If fitting the new dash cover over the old one, trim old dash to fit snugly before fitting to car."

Step3, use foam filler and cling wrap Rolling Eyes

sorry I'm kinda picky

I'm still waiting for warm weather before I install the 1 I got. Don't know about others on here, but we just got above 32*F 3 days ago, with cold weather returning for the weekend (and next week). That kind of weather puts me in hibernation mode for a while, as it's hard to get motivated when the temps are in single digits for highs. Rolling Eyes Don't even get me started on overnight lows (in the minus 0's), or factoring in wind chills. Needless to say I don't like the cold. Wink

sorry I'm kinda picky


Most ,like in 99% have fitted it strait on to the steel, it has rigidity and form to do that, I my self have fitted two, one on the old dash and one on its own, and the one on its own looks and feels better, as fitting it to a bent and blistered old dash is not easy.

From the maker, I think go with the flow, and fit it without the old dash, if not happy you can always go to point "1"

Here is a copy of the instructions, and it is an "Either Or" not a step 1, step 2,step 3

(For LHD, left becomes right and right becomes left)
1) If you fitting the new dash over the old one, trim old dash to fit snugly before fitting to car. Then go to 3
2) If using Foam filler, place cling wrap on steel dash, spray small amount of foam in dash , press onto cling wrapped steel dash, and hold till dry. Repeat till full, and then trim to fit BEFORE mounting to car. Then go to 3
3) when fitting as is, offer up to mount location, ensure fit, by trimming and filling. Warm dash by placing in sun, or hot water. Mount RIGHT Gauge 1st, fully installed. Then Center Gauge, working through the other hole, ensure all wires and Speedo cable mounted. Then LEFT gauge, Once all gauges are fitted and fully working , Mount Handel via dash to steel part of body, Then mount surround of dash with old removed screws, and touch up with a dab of black paint on the screw head.

I just re-installed the aftermarket POS dash pad that came with my '68 Squareback. So much work to make the car nice again and all I can see is the dash pad that looks like ASS right in front of me!

I think I'm on the list, any update on availability?

Thanks,

Dave
