Wow, finally finished my dash hope you all enjoy the pics.

I salvaged this dash from a 77 i believe.




spent awhile getting it prepped




filled the old emblem hole, couldnt seem to find a 73 dash emblem anywhere. so i might use the one from the front grill.




looked at some samples




judgment day

built this jig to keep it in place

not to easy and i had a couple helpers

will have to splice/graph some pieces in, damn this wasnt easy

Last day at home Finished

made some vent covers and matched the pattern.

not to shabby.

this dash has come along way

It looks great! I covered the woodgrain on my eighty five with the carbon fiber decal, and all of it did fine except the the cover over the floor shifter, I think the sun heated it and caused it to bubble up. I'm going to re cover it and see what happens. I hope you don't have the same problem....

I am doing my 73 dash as well. I am not so ambitious, repair and install. Well done idea and completion.

Ok I'll be the first to ask. How much to do mine for me?

well that sounds good I think your dash pad would be easier to do since its a little smaller.
