Yes, that is the one. It cleaned up pretty nicely, huh? One small crack near the speedomter. Not even noticable unless you get real close.
I just pulled the wood out so that I could have the chrome re-plated. I do not think anyone sells replacement wood kits for the Berlina, so I either need to make my own or use something else.
I am thinking of using brushed aluminum or maybe some carbon fiber. Most likely I will just get some new wood.
The real cool thing about the dash is that it does not have a radio cut out. I think that is really cool, since all of the cars were made without radios. I found a radio that can be installed in the trunk and controlled by a remote. Nothing in the dash. Now I just need to figure out where I am going to hide the speakers!
wow, that is such a nice dash. i am glad it is going to good use. interior guys should be able to do the wood.
which radio is it? i wanna get one like that for my junior cuz it too has a virgin dash. only thing is that i wanna figure out a way to mount the antenna in the truck as well cuz it has no holes for one and i'd like to keep it that way.
If you decide to do a wood dash, give me a shout. I did one for my '69 GTV. It's not hard to do and it comes out great if done properly. I'd be glad to tell/show you what I did and how I did it. One nice thing about it is that you get to pick the kind of wood you like. The original dashes were quite dark but faded substantially with time. There are now UV protectant coatings that will minimize the fade if you want the original look.
