they sound crazy expensive. I found another outfit in Medford OR called Dash Specialists. No web-site but I will call them in the morning.
Another joint near by is in Brush Prairie, called http://www.dashboardrestorations.com/
will call and see who I like best. Of course I'll post the results.
I'd just put a rug or cap on it. The brand new one I put on my 72 spider in 2000 is starting to crack despite being parked entirely inside since then. Not entirely climate controlled, but I'm thinking you can't win by buying this pot.
Wait until you find out the cost to remove and replace! No way I would ever do it myself or pay for any daily driver or non-99 point show car!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A PITA to change out. Caps and rugs really look pretty nice to me after having all four.
if I'm to believe the propaganda put out by these dash people, a big part of the problem is the type of foam used by the car companies in the 60s, 70s and 80s. It was crap. It cracked, it became powder over a short period of time.
New foams are more heat and UV resistant.
Maybe its all hooey. I don't know. What I do know is that I stare at those cracks EVERY SINGLE DAY.
If my trunk needed refinishing, I wouldn't care. If I had a dent in the back, it wouldn't bother me every single moment I'm in the driver's seat.
Interested in the how the PNW firms make out with your dash. I am ready to redo mine. I did the $30 repair and it re-cracked. The price above seems great compared to Just Dashes and Centerlines. Hope they are as familiar with GTV dashes. Let us know the results.
