    Guys the interior of my 66-300 is in really good shape. I had some minor tears and foam repaired at a local shop at a reasonable price. The only wart is my dash pad has a gnarly crack right in the middle with about a 1/4 seperation. 3 questions.
    Is there a place to order a new one at a reasonable price?
    How difficult is it to replace?
    I saw an eppisode of Muscle Cars some time ago where they repaired a nasty crack with filler and then used some vinyl paint and it looked dam good, anyone have experience with this or the products?

    I agree with the above suggestion unless you can locate an original in excellent shape and stay away from any filler, it will prove to be a futile effort

    Thanks guys much appreciated. I was not eager for the filler route just curious about it. When time and $$$ permit I will go this route.

    I've been working with Dash Specialists in Oregon. They have been extremely responsive 700-800 for a 73 Fury Dash Just Dashs wants 1200 and it a long wait. They don't have a website up but have ads in most magazines. I've had a friends use them 3 times...goggle around you might save a bunch.
