I'll try to post some pictures later today. I'll have to learn how to do that. I looked at your pictures and you had the same situation I'm in.

Everything is glued down except for the sides. When trying to fit the dash in the vinyl gathers at the bottom on the sides. It would appear that the vinyl just needs to be wrapped around the dash at that point and glued down.

Going to get back after it in a little while.
Thanks

Well finally got back on track. Here are some pictures of the dashpad replacement on the frame.

You see the pad extending past the metal frame on the drivers side. Should this material be folded over the frame and glued to it or left loose?

Thanks.

Leonard

You can fold it over and glue it or just use some tape to hold it in place. It will be hidden by the lower dash panel.
