FWIW, I sent Just Dashes a totally worn out, cracked, thrashed, piece of junk Trans Am dash for a buddy of mine. This was back in about '90 or so.

I had heard of them but had not seen any of their work in person, so needless to say I was a little concerned. IIRC the cost was around $400 but I could be off on that as it wasn't my dime, so to speak.

In any event, the dash we got back was better than original and there were no problems w/it in any regard. I hope the new management/process changes result in as good of a dash as what I received.

I just remove all the vinyl and paint the steel the same color as the rest of the dash in semi-gloss... Padded dashes look cheesy in my book...

A grand for a padded dash, I don't think so....

That may work in some cases, but the F-cars I've had and worked on don't have a solid metal dash under the vinyl.

I think in this case of protecting your rep. it should be .
as it's way to easy to bash a vendor..
the o/p never put up photo's of the said dash..
and because he didn't show any proof, and the bash shows up in search. maybe it should be tossed.. or at least a mod's note that there was no proof show, and take the post for what it is..

I have a just dash 3 gauge pod dash cover for my 71 c-10 it's almost 10 y/o and still looks new

are you reading the same thread that I read, cause it sounded like people where scared away from a vendor without one photo of the o/p dash issues,, not say'n it could not have happened, but..
as far as your last line, the posts would say otherwise
