Dash cap looks great, another option is to peel off old cracked vinyl without disturbing foam underneath. I then had it re upholstered in faux leather with accented blue stitching

I am making them..were tweaking the mold to cover more of the dash pad. Plan to come down in front and wrap underneath. Should have the first one soon.

Mine is uncracked still.  I keep a sunshade over it and I've been putting 303 Aerospace Protectant on it in hopes it remains that way.

The shop I use for my parts is changing owners and the person that hand makes them as well as this dash cap mold is retiring. I am calling and pushing them to complete the revised mold. Once I have the mold and confirm pricing and availabilty I will post them up for sale. Sorry for long wait.
