Custom Dash

Postby MaxMonza77 » Thu Jun 07, 2018 3:41 pm

Has anyone made their own dash for their car, I have my stock dash but it is in bad shape, I've done what I can with it but would like to have something a bit nicer, just trying to get ideas.

If you have the money, Just Dashes can remake your dash with longer lasting material than stock. I just got a quote from them on one of my really cracked up ones for$1100 with no fake stitch. Had to ask for a quote and give them a description of my dash condition, then you have to pay to send your to them and they completely re-make it. Not sure what your car actually is, but here is one I found on ebay the other day for $800.

75 Monz that is a "Just Dashes" Dash re-do, while infinitely better than a cracked one with missing pieces, it just doesn't look right to me, and about 5+/- [maybe closer to 10] years ago they wanted $600 Clams for that, I am glad I waited, I eventually found one that will look good in my car, let's hope it stays that way. Did any of you watch the video JD has on their site? https://www.youtube.com/user/justdashes apparently now a "YouTube Channel" Harry

Depending on how bad it is, if you have tools and time check out this crack fix, pretty cool way to even mimic the grain.

Yeah, I remember it being about $500 and I thought that was quite a bit.........$1100 seems out of the ballpark.
