Input needed on reproduction dash

Postby mopar 346 » Mon Jun 04, 2018 7:40 pm

I ran across this and wondered if anyone has any info on it or the company offering it.

Thanks, Kevin

Not sure if it is the same one but most likely; a guy on facebook let them use his as a pattern or to make the mold from,what ever they do. I think he got the first one to test or something, I cant remember exactly. I'll ask him about it.

Ok I talked to him. He worked with them for 2 years developing it. it said it was fantastic. He said to skip ebay & go directly to the maker & tell them Karl Jacobs sent you ;

Thank you Johnny, I'll get one coming, I've been waiting for one for awhile. Karl, thank you for helping to bring this to market, care to give any glimpse on what else they might be working on?

Karl the link goes to a metal fab site but I did a quick search and came up with this https://rhinofabrication.com/product/19 ... -dash-pad/ , which seems to be right.

Ordered!


Thanks again, Kevin

Got mine today!! Now, how do I install it? Take the trim pieces off and just place it up there? Mine has a homemade cloth looking think on it now. I'm kinda scared to start pulling it off!! Is there supposed to be a hole on top for a speaker? The new pad has an indention there.

You remove your garnish mouldings and carefully remove the stainless lower trim piece at the bottom of the pad, remove your A pillar trim, speaker grille etc etc... clean clean clean and dye the pad WITHOUT TRIMMING IT AS IT WILL SLIGHTLY SHRINK! It's right when the radio recess drops into place ... You need to remove the defroster ducts and the speaker grille.. if you've never done this I suggest you enlist someone with upholstery knowledge ... it's not that hard as we did many test fits and the finished product is awesome! It is extremely important to know yourbblimits and seekv assistance if unsure.. this pad literally drops in place with only slight TRIMMING! But don't trim the lower section till after the lower trim piece is in place! If you have Facebook join our group Mercury Comets and see the step by step process I posted..

And do NOT glue the new one in place. The trim will hold it secure and removal next time is easy.
