Thread: tan dash pad for a 1987

  1. #1

    Default tan dash pad for a 1987

    I'm seeking a tan dash pad for a 1987. A speaker cover section has disintegrated about 35%, leaving an ugly hole. Zip is 29204, which is Columbia, SC.

    I sugest using a carpet dash pad cover. Use a dark brown one. Basicly what ever color interior get the darkest to match ie red interior get a dark rd one etc.
    What it does is stop sunlight from being reflected back up into the windshield making clearer vision almost like fog lifting.

    Turbo, thanks for the reply. Dash carpets are too ugly for me. I pass on cars with cracked dashes.

    I only know of ones for the Town Car. Was not sure since you just stated 1987.

    After another four years in the sun, the other speaker cover section is rotted. So I'm still looking for a tan, or a restomod brown one, if they exist.

    There's the coverlay stuff that seems to look pretty decent while you wait to find an authentic replacement.

    Slack, thanks for the tip. How many screws are there to get the dash out? Are there plastic tabs or other easily broken connectors to deal with?

    No connectors.

    Four screws in the vents up against the glass (make sure to use a strong magnetic tip for those so they don't fall down into the vents). One in each side and a handful under the lip of the dash pad.
