#1
I see that CJ offers a dash pad cover, has anyone tried one? if so, were you happy with looks, fit ?

I bought mine form CJ's back in 2005. It was made by Dashes Direct. The look of the dash matched my original one very closely; the only difference I noticed is that the grain stood out more than my original, but that was probably because the old dash had developed a patina over the years. Mine still looks great after 6 years.

Sorry no close-up pics, but here are a couple:

Wow Mike, that's about the cleanest dash I've ever seen!

Thanks, but the dash board (not pad) does have some imperfections up close but does look good a few feet away!

That's the Pillsbury Dough Boy, he matches the car and covers up the ripped stitching in the original upholstery driver's seat at car shows Rolleyes

x2 on that!... great job and great car Tongue

As the dash pad cover you are wondering, if it is what this vert has, it looks great...

I tryed on another mustang 1970, the plastic cover that NPD sales to "repair" cracked ones... In the 1970 and in NPD it is suitable because the real dash pad costs over 500 dollars and this plastic cover costs like 80...

The results are 40% i would say... it is better than a broken dash pad and in the pictures it looks good... If you look it closely it doesn´t fit in all corners and in the down side of the dash pad, besides, it is hard to the hand...

Bottom line... i´m needing a dash pad like you and i´m waiting to afford what this white vert has... never again buy the plastic cover...

Don, It's the bottom part of the seat, the stitches the vinyl part of the seat has ripped from the comfort weave for about a three inch section. The upholstery shop that did my top said it could not be repaired. Then there's a hole in the bottom too from year's ago; the old screwdriver in the back pocket trick! Are yours new or used and how much are you asking?

Looks like you have a great price on the Dashes Direct Dash Pad, I paid about $146.00 for mine back in 2005!
