dash j clips
#1
nuke 
I replaced the dash pad on my mach. The original was only held on with the clips in the back. I read the post by Barry and the comments by Nance. Do the j clips go on the dash frame or the dash pad. I have been fighting this for two days now. I will post pics later when I get to the shop.

Are you taking about the 3 j clips that hold the rear of the dash board top down under the front windshield ?

Those 3 clips attach to the metal section of the dash top with the vin number, when installing the bottom of the j clips slide into dash board frame and hold the rear of the metal top down.

There should also be a foam pad around each clip to stop the metal on metal rattling.

Depending on if you have a 71-72 then the front of the dash top with the pad gets 2 long screws through the center panel, and 4 more screws held on with clips to the ends above the glove box and main instrument cluster.

The 73 used 2 more screws under the windshield to anchor the dash top.

The ones I am asking about go in the froont above the clove box and above the guage cluster.

Those are just c clips they hold around the metal on the front of the dash, then you run screws through the dash frame. I to the c clips and the whole thing gets sandwiched together.
