Re: dashpad

FYI, Just Dashes, does not fix 69 dash pads. Original ones have a yellowed plastic/resin core and urethane is molded on top. The resin core cracks and breaks. Most repros have a metal core and the better ones are pretty good.

Re: dashpad

I got OER a while ago, fit pretty well, not sure who is the best now. The clips do not stay in so you have to do something to secure them. And I put a strip of velcro over the center of the dash (above clock location). Repros have this angle to them and they don't sit level, the velcro helps that.

Only crappy pic I could find, sorry

Re: dashpad

I glue the clips in with panel adhesive. Works well.

I had the same issues with my OER dash. I used windshield ribbon strip the even out the say over the clock. The clips did not fit well on mine either. I bent them just a hair and they worked. The glue is probably a better fix.
