I use a good plastic weld to fill. The original dash was chrome plated then painted dash color except thin outlines around the gagues, dash vent, heat/ac controls radio and perimeter of dash. The 4 small circles (left/right turn, high beam, brake)are dash color not chrome. There are a few places that will do this but it is very expensive. Most people paint the dash then outline with a silver paint pen from a hobby or craft store. I think that all 70's buckets had head rest.

68 had no headrests, 69-72 did. Those may be recovered 70 seats and they removed the headrests.
