Re: New repo dash or Clark's dash kit? Advice needed.

I've ridden in Cliff's car and it actually looks much more "hi $ / Deluxe" than the factory pads...


Remember the difference in a '76-7 Olds Cutlass "Supreme" and the "Supreme Brohamm"??

I generally support Clark's and will usually spend the extra bit of money. But in this case the difference just didn't justify it for me. Less than $10.00 invested. It just seemed to me the better option.

Oh I fully understand. It looks fine, just not stock. It all depends on what you have to work with what you want as an end result and your skill level.

Replacing the dash pad in my late, is a project my wife and I plan to tackle. The plan is to go over the existing pad. There are two (2) minor cracks in the existing pad. What did you use to cover your cracks, assuming yours had cracks?
