    I do....but according to Facebook......he has a LOT of people's dashes....and their money.....and they did not get a dash pad back. Big fiasco all over Facebook, unfortunately.

    Company called delta bay mustangs actually reproduces the whole dash pad now (not cap). They are out of California. I cannot attest to the quality of them yet but looks like a decent piece.

    I thought so too Larry, but keep in mind these are NOT exact OEM style reproductions so not really an apples to apples comparison. If you guys are really interested I can post prices quoted to me based on volumes ordered. Shipping wasn't too bad but still adds another $62. I posted pic's here.

    IMO, they would be a good choice if the pad was missing or irreparable. Otherwise filling cracks and recovering or recoating would still be considerably cheaper.

    Oh, I assumed they were exact reproductions.
