NOT getting as far with this car as I would like.But plodding along best as I can.Here is a dash I picked out of a free parts car.Fixed a few minor cracks as best I could,then had a quart of vinyl dye color matched to my door panels.Quick $100 bucks.Had 3 choices,flat,semi-gloss and gloss.This is semi gloss.I did not want a bunch of reflection on the windshield when driving into the sun. This dash was Rose Mist when new,but had faded to almost Black.Got a new vanity glove box and glove box door from SASCO.Still have some adjustments to do on the door,but I am happy so far.This aint going to be a show car,just a cruise in special.

Getting tired of ground up buildups and stripping parts cars. I must be getting old!

How did you "fix" the bad spots? I have to do the same for mine but the topper is NLA from SASCO or SI.

The dash looks great!!!

I just talked to SI about getting one of the 63 caps and Vanity cover as well. Heck, they asked me what color I wanted it to be! They spray them before they send them out. Such a deal!

Bullet. I used some vinyl repair glue in a yellow tube.And in one spot some super glue first,with vinyl repair over it.Permatex makes a similar tube of repair glue.Not 100 % but I don't mind.
