I ordered my "Dashtop" from CARiD at $154 free shipping.  Decided to paint myself to try and match it best.   Probably use SEM paint from paint supply house. It said will ship in 3-5 days we'll see.

Be sure to keep us updated.

I just got a quote from Just Dashes on a ‘73 Monte.

about 1g for basic service. Another 150 for cracked speaker area and about 200 for paint match. (Black is standard)

 I ordered one of the dash pads from OPGI on February 14, 2018.  Haven't received it yet and now been told possible delivery of mid July.  They didn't wait to get payment though.

Loren, is it possible to have your dash covered by an upholsterer in your area? One of the shops in my area said he would cover my dash with matching color in leather

I found a picture of Kaber's 63 Riviera with the ABS dash cap installed. His has been dyed to match the rest of the interior.

Ed, how about having a dash recover with matching vinyl or leather?

I did that once on my 63 says number of years ago.  There's nothing wrong with it.  Leather wouldn't be correct and would be really expensive.  The problem with vinyl is that you have to use something that's fairly thin so it fits but being thin means it's not going to be very durable.  If it's glued down, it will "crack" as the original dash beneath it cracks. It will also show the original work underneath it.   If you're going for a driver, I'd go with the cap; if youre going for something you want to resell for $50K, then you'd better go with Just Dashes.
