my original dash had been cut-up for gauges and switches. I took it to body shop and they used "Plastic Bumper" (again don't know which type) and It was difficult to find areas after their work. so it is a "black" plastic of some sort.
the body guy even suggested just priming and painting
FYI, my original dash then disappearded alone with local upholsterer. So GunnerZ has a dash I got of ebay that will need recovering
'71-'72-1/2= fiberglas with vinyl upholstery covering. '73-up = poly plastic of some kind with no upholstery. Consoles match the dash & do not interchange. So everything electrical mounted in/on the dash needs its own ground.
My 73 dash seems to be made from some sort of molded plastic covered with hard foam and vinyl. It has several deep cracks. It appears to be stock. I intent to add a couple of gauges and switches. Are these stock plastic dashes workable or will they fall apart if the covering is removed? Thanks!
I took my original to a local body shop (actually neighbor), stripped off vynal and he used a bunper repair materail.
when finished with repairs, he suggested spending a few more hours and he thought it would look good painted.
so maybe that helps a little about your concerns.
rest of the story, the local upholtery guy VANISHED with mine!
so after searching for all those $100 ones supposed cluttering garages, even tried Halls (they had them, just too much trouble to pull down from top shelf), I got a $1000 + one of ebay that GunnerZ is suppose to modify and recover. I want to move wiper switches to center
