Hello everyone, I know I saw complete dash pads for the 105 Spyder, they were like 14 or 1500 dollars, now I don't remember where. The dash assy. came out this morning. It's horribly warped & fitted with a cracked dash cap.
Thank you.

I purchased one from Alfaholics 3 years ago, but I don't see on their website today. I recall someone who purchased one after I did and there were quality issues. So not surprised to see it dropped. Mine fit nicely for bench assembly. Still not in car.

You need to examine the underside of the dash top. I believe the 1967 dash will have studs that are parallel to the top of the dash and pass thru the face of the metal dash. By 1969 the studs were installed at an angle. The top of the metal dash had a corresponding bend in it to accept the stud. I have heard that the aftermarket dash tops that could be found were mostly angled.

This is the face of a 1967 dash. The top studs pass thru the holes on top of the dash face.

You don't have enough posts to receive a private message. 10 required I think.

Send me an email address and I will send pictures of my 1967 dash top I won't be using. Might be in better condition than what you have, but I doubt it. Mine is rough.

I searched since early spring for a '66/'67 Duetto dash. The '66/'67 dash tops have 90* angled studs, and the '69 US and later Junior European versions have the angled 45* studs. The only dash tops that I found have the later 45* studs. I gave up and bought a Centerline dash cap. It was easy to install, and fit perfectly. Although it's not a new dash I am satisfied with how it looks.
Just Dashes will recover your old dash top for about $1400. Too much for me, and there's a considerable turnaround time. Dash Specialists charges are about a third less than Just Dashes.
I posted pictures of the different stud configurations, and before and after of the Centerline dash top.
Picture #1 is a '66/'67
Picture #2 is '69 US

Back in the early 80's I took my dash out and took it to an upholstery shop. He sanded the crack and covered it with padding and vinyl. There are stitches along the length but it has lasted and does not look bad. I can get a picture of it later.
