Guy has some window louvers for sale, too. Wasn't somebody on here looking for a set recently?

Wow. $$$$ Out of his mind.... Just Dashes will refurbish for less and it will look better.

Not so sure, anymore. Last couple of guys on here who had Just Dashes restore theirs say it ran closer to $1800.

If I'm going to go that far in on it, I would rather pay the extra $500.00 and know it will be done right by JD and be ready to rock, as opposed to one that clearly needs a lot of TLC. And that's even if the seller's truthful on the 'absolutely no cracks' part.

No one ever lies on ebay, right?

I was thinking the same thing. If its not right, at least you can try and get whoever redoes your dash to fix the issue. If it is crack free, how long will that last? Its still a 40+ yr old dash.

$1800? Really? I think I was in the 900-1K department in 09. Guess that's 10 years ago now, but I paid for expedition fees as well due to a deadline. Thought I scored a perfect dash off of eBay till it showed up and it was a dash cap....

I thought it was cheaper than that yesterday when Mcarlo77 first posted this. Also it looks to be rather dried up and if I'm not mistaken, doesn't that lend itself to cracking really easy?
I know if I could afford to have JD do mine, I sure would do it.

Exactly. UV beats on it for 40 years and it dries out. It will crack if you even look at it wrong. I didn't do much right as a youth, but one thing I did was put Armor-All on mine periodically from the day I got the car. People derided me and told me it was crap, but today my dash (and all the other vinyl) looks and feels like it rolled out of the factory yesterday.

I purchased a large roll of correct "haircell" vinyl a few years back to restore several dashes I've kept from the vehicles I've parted out. I did a test on the center of the dash to see how the vinyl will form when heated to the proper temperature. The test went well so I have a friend of mine who builds cabinets building a vacuum table that's large enough to do the job. I'm hoping to have a dash completed by the end of summer. When I do I'll post pictures of the results. In meantime I've posted pics of my test.

I for one would love to see progress pics on how that's done. What's the proper temperature? Does it become more pliable?

The vinyl I'm working with is very pliable from 200-220 degrees. At that temp it conforms very nicely to all the contours on the dash. Below is a link to a video that shows part of the process of applying the vinyl.

Hey Guys-regarding the Just Dashes, I had them do one for me for the 73 el Camino SS, and it was just over 1800.00 including the shipping. It was very nice but still too thick and a little "puffy" as compared to OEM. You just can't beat original. Very glad to find an NOS one (74-77) on ebay at Christmas time for 1,150.00-just can't beat GM. The one that Bill Hirte is working on looks great in the pictures, and there is a guy down in Florida doing these for about a 1,000.00. Can't believe Parts Place in Chicago is not reproducing these things- I even volunteered sending in a core to them but never heard back. Let's all wait on "G3 Chevy" to work his magic- Mitch
