DESCRIPTION

PAD, Dash / Instrument Panel, Urethane, *NPD Exclusive*, BEST-GRADE, made with new tooling and features correct grain, sheen and construction, plus the weight and sturdiness of the original pad, reproduction

Since these pads are so difficult and sensitive to produce, there are slight quality variations within the production runs. Some pads arrive from the manufacture with very tiny/subtle bubbles around the perimeter of the instrument cluster, and some arrive with the character line/ridge around the perimeter of the instrument cluster not as crisp in certain areas. We hand-inspect every pad, and sort into three categories/grades, BEST-GRADE, MID-GRADE, and LOWER-GRADE. See part number C-14655-214AB for MID-GRADE, and part number C-14655-214AC for LOWER-GRADE, priced accordingly.

Please rest assured that the MID and LOWER GRADE pads are beautifully built, fit perfectly, and the extent of the flaws is quite minor. This is a perfect opportunity for those with driver-quality cars to save significant money on a brand-new pad.

A long overdue part is finally available for 1970-81 Firebird or Trans Am owners: this brand new NPD exclusive dash pad. Starting with original GM dash pads, new tooling was created to mold original-style urethane with correct grain, sheen and construction, plus the weight and sturdiness of the original dash pad. Over FOUR YEARS was invested into the development of these dash pads, in the effort to achieve proper fit and original appearance. This pad surpasses any other modern reproduction on the market, and certainly surpasses your cracked/used/warped original.

Restoration Note:

Can be dyed to match other interior colors (we recommend our NPD line of flexible SEM restoration paints and preps).

Note:

This pad is a correct reproduction for 1970-1976 and 1977 first design models, but will fit 1978-1981 models as well. 1978-1981 models originally used a 2 1/2 inch height measurement on the radio opening (this pad uses a 2 inch radio height correct for 1970-1976 and 1977 first design models).

Pontiac Firebird / Trans Am Years:

1970 (70), 1971 (71), 1972 (72), 1973 (73), 1974 (74), 1975 (75), 1976 (76), 1977 (77)

Dash / Instrument Panel Pad, black finish, *NPD Exclusive*, BEST-GRADE reproduction for (70-77)

This is a beautiful piece, very high quality. The surface texture is gorgeous, and the padding is soft. All the dimensions are very accurate, I love how it fits. I do have one very serious issue with it, though: All the edges are beautifully finished, the urethane wraps around everything and provides a perfect, rounded edge everywhere except for one place... the entire top edge of the dash. For some reason I can't fathom, that edge is left cut short and raw. This is especially ironic because that's literally the ONLY edge that really remains visible once everything is assembled and installed. All the other beautifully finished edges don't matter, they're hidden from view. But the top edge is 100% visible through the windshield, people touch it whenever they reach for something on the top of the dash. Why is that one edge not rounded off? I don't get it. And it's very disappointing considering how much this product costs. I expected better. In fact, the main reason I'm replacing my dash is because the nice, rounded edge at the top of my old one was getting worn out and ragged after 45 years. Now I'm replacing it with a part that has a raw, unfinished edge. It's enough to give me buyer's remorse.
