    that's what I have on my Mav. it just snaps on or you can use the glue that comes with it.
    the Accuform is the one I have.

    No, this is the cap to cover the Arizona sunbaked one in the car.

    The way I'm reading his post, I think it is.

    bryson123 - Many guys have old ones laying around you could probably get pretty cheap. These dash caps must have something to fit over to work. There is no way to use one without an old pad.

    Post a wanted ad here in the classifieds - someone will have one. All years and 2 or 4 door are the same.

    Ahh, I thought RMiller was asking me, not the OP. Yep, looks like the OP does need a core to use one of these caps. I seem to recall seeing someone who was making a complete re-pop of the dash pad for around $300. Can't find it so may not be available anymore.

    I think it was Delta Bay Mustang but I didn't see it on their site.

    Must not have been a hot seller for them.

    Received the Accuform dash pad today. It is pretty well made and fit perfect. So much better than the cracked, sunbaked dash pad underneath. It snapped right in place with no need for their adhesive. (ignore the rest of the car in the pic, lots of work left to do on the interior, once I get the wiring tucked up out of the way)
