Someone cut the knob holes from my dash. Does anyone have any experience repairing these? Is it reasonable to think I can Dremmel the knob holes off of a donor dash and epoxy them to my dash? Any help would be appreciated. Eric
I recall seeing a repair kit offered for this... Don't recall where if it was a magazine or TV show. Maybe someone else will recall. In the meantime check with our sponsor Ground Up or some of the other suppliers. What I recall is that the repair kit comes with the "Cone" shaped holes to replace the cut or damadged ones. Maybe in an issue of Chevelle World???
I have the same problem,I'm trying to restore the dash on my '70 SS. I dug out my oct.98 issue of THE CHEVELLE REPORT which had an article on dash repair.The place making the "radio standoffs" was called DOCTOR DASH and was from the state of Mass.I have tried both the webb site and phone number listed in the article and neither were still in service.If any one can help with info,it will be greatly appreciated.Thanks
i just replaced an entire dash in my '72 mostly because the radio holes had been destroyed. i was just telling some guys at work that if anyone ever came up with a repair kit for this area and sold it on the internet they would become rich. this has to be the most frequently molested area of any classic car. i thought about gluing in some "cups" to replace the original radio knob recesses but decided my main man at hughey auto ranch in south carolina deserves to make a living to so i just bought a used but unmolested dash from him. however, if someone were industrious enough i bet they could come up wit a fix for these.
