Default Do i have a dash pad?

Looking at replacing the speakers, but i dont have grills. Instead i just have some perforated holes, leading me to believe there is a pad over the top. Of thats the case, how do i get to my speakers?

Excellent, looks like it will take some work. And good write ups on how to remove one? And if im lucky enough not to break it, what should i use to replace it?

Save yourself some effort and put them in the doors? It'll be more expensive probably.....but ultimately easier and you won't chance wrecking your dash. Just my opinion.

Ill probably put some there too later on, as of now i already have most of the glue seperated successfully, only the front lip under the windsheid is stuck still. Ive been working it out carefully, and the original dash underneath is pretty much garbage.

Success! The pad is off, and ill clean the adhesive to apply new stuff. Should i just use silicon? What about that spray-on 3M stuff?

Cool From what I remember you....

....have to put the adhesive supplied with dash cap (our others may suggest options) So that the dash can expand and contract! Otherwise it may/will crack! Directions show certain points to apply and not! Good luck!
A bit blurry but...

Silicone works for the adhesive

Default Pad

When I do mine, I think I will just use a few carefully thought out locations for double sided tape pads. Just keep it from moving around
The partial cover on it now is not even secured at all and causes no problems. JP

That is an excellent video ! I watched it because my back-burner project is my '87 SS Elco, which is really rough behind the dash, from the leaky windshield, rusty stuff back there !!
