    I'm impressed with how the Coverlay dash cover is working for you. Our dash pads are getting harder to find in decent shape.

    Edit: looks like it may be Dashtop...
    Nice. I'm sure some folks will like to have that info.

    Yup think that's the company in question.

    Also have a couple of these coverlays in the garage from junkyard visits.

    Also have a mint late 80sTC dash pad in dark blue with a small crack over one dash speaker. Was too nice to leave. Rest of dash mint. Someone here want it?

    Btw that cover lay install looks really good. Excellent job!

    I do like it. If I blacked out the edge of the original, It would blend in much better.

    yeah... the sensor hole is a lot further right on that one than on mine. Go figure.

    I have one of these door panel caps on one of the lincolns. I had to trim it so it would fit and look better. It has held up pretty good. If I had not trimmed it, it would have been quite evident that a cap was put on.

    I agree, that came out great! Thanks for bumping it or else I would have missed it.
    I have been skeptical of the overlays but after seeing this I am definitely interested

    my dash was so screwed. I had to trim off all the curled up bits to get it to lay flat. Can't tell to the longevity since I sold the car though. I imagine it's fine though. It's pretty stout.
