I'm going through hell trying to get this repo dash pad to fit.

Has anyone been able to rework one of these pieces of crap to actually fit properly at the ends???

What a waste of money this pad turned out to be. Totally unacceptable quality!

Why do companies continue to bother making this stuff if they are gonna do it half-assed!!!

This issue has come up before. All agree, the repro dash pad are less than first rate. I hated mine so much that I finally pulled it out, sent my ragged old original to "just dashes", and spent the $400 to get a quality product for my car.

Not a whole lot you can do to make the repro one fit the way an original does.

Thx guys, I'm sending mine off to Just Dashes.

The OPG repo pad would not even fit. What a POS!

Repo stuff pisses me off like you would not believe!

Why do companies continue to make stuff that does not fit? Why the hell even make it if it's not gonna be right?

you will be very pleased with the quality of your finished product. $$ well spent. Nothing like the RIGHT part!!

Personally, I think the suppliers should divulge the fact that these pads are such poor quality. They must get tons of them back from customers.
