    Impressive, but a lot of work, and it would probably crack elsewhere, unfortunately.

    Justdashes can do a MoPar dashpad for around $600 and up. Expensive, but their work is Concours quality.

    I have seen a lot of their dashes, and none of them is concours quality in my opinion. And I am not aware of any C body dash that they would do for less than $1400 these days. I would repair any cracked dash using the above technique before I would have Just Dashes do anything for me.

    yeah its alot of money to have a professional restore a dash pad.
    thats why that thread appealed to me, just curious to see what other people have done

    The other option depending on what model you have is to get a really concours quality remanufactured (not repaired) dashpad from Bob Baker that runs from $600 and up to around $800 at most I believe. Or half the price of the Just Dashes stuff.

    They did a '68 New Yorker dash for me in '98 for $700 - it was flawless - but it has been nearly 17 years since i dealt with them personally.
