1966 repro dash pad by OPG

Just installed my new dash pad. I got the wrapped vinyl part. Well big surprise, it fits like shi!. Is there anything better? Does the urethane part fit? Anyone with experience?

If you still have your original, member RealRed70, Dan can restore most pads and does a great job.

The original was trash. Evidently OPG has a vinyl wrapped and a urethane. I bought the vinyl wrapped to be close to original. I am wondering if the urethane would fit better. But they said I could get a complete refund. Thanks.

Got the NPD dash pad today. It is a very nice part. The color seems correct has a good contour. The item sold thru OPG is made by Dashes Direct in Las Vegas. A real junky part. Wrong color too.

I recently installed an NPD dash pad on my 68. Fitment is horrible. I'll be returning it and installing a restored OEM part.
