I have a similar problem. I can't find any new dash pads for my 63 Fairlane wagon, so I need to do something with the one I have and it's pretty bad. This isn't going to be a restored car. In fact, I'm thinking of leopard print interior. How should I go about covering the dash pad with fabric? I've seen alot of cars covered in tweed, so this should be pretty similar.

Django be REALLY careful selecting the fabric for your dash and any fabrics in plain view of the sun most printed fabrics are not the best quality and will last no time at all under the front screen (depending on what the weather is like in your part of the globe of course in NZ we have high UV ) , sunlight etc wont do it any good at all , have a good look around and see what is around at the automotive fabric suppliers or if your after something different good quality upholstry fabrics would do the job and theres a huge range , cheap fabrics will end up costing your more in the long run in time and money
You should be able to find what your after in a half decent fabric with out to much trouble though just remember to cover the dice to match
