New Dash Pad
#1
So I been slowly working a 70 mach 1 Ive owned for the past 5 years. I finally decided to replace the dash pad as it had some pretty big cracks. The interior is all original & still in pretty nice condition and the dash was the deal breaker.

New dash pad came in & its out with the old and in w/the new.

With minimal work the dash came right out.

Thanks for posting the detailed pictures of the process. Thats interesting that the screw was taped there; the tape looks like its been there a long time.

what i found interesting was the fact those parts that say made in canada were the oem parts that were on the car since new. I had no idea Ford was outsourcing parts to canada.

Had some spare time to work on the center console.

Masked it off to add a few coats of trim black.

Final product. The wood trim needs a bit of attention but for now it will do.
