I had a reproduction dash top put on my '68 and am now having trouble getting my original GM dash pad to sit down in place. The dash pad is sitting about 3/8 of an inch too high where it meets the dash face.

I am trying to figure out if the problem is with the reproduction dash top, the way it was installed, or both.

I am attaching a sketch of the cross section where the dash top meets the dash face. I am hoping someone who has their correct fitting dash pad off can check the measurement I am showing on their car and verify if my measurement is correct or wrong.

 

Thanks....Dave

Dave, I'm not in a position to measure and help (I have a '69....) but hopefully someone will be able to confirm that dimension. From your (great) sketch and photo, it looks like the dash top needs to slide downwards a little, to reduce the 1 1/16" overlap down until the screw holes align. Hope you get confirmation!
