I have a  '79 MGB that has a dashboard that is not cracked or checked or
faded, and  would like to keep it that way with a (removable) overlay. Can
anyone  suggest a good solution for this?

Howard, here in the El Paso area, where the sun dries, fades, and cracks  
everything, it is SOP to head for Pep Boys, Checker, Autozone, or one of those  
places to order a carpet cover for the dash of your new car.
I would think, if they are not readily available for the MGB, that having a  
custom one sewn at an upholstery shop wouldn't be too costly.  There was  one 
on my Midget when I bought it.
These are basically sacrificial and may need replacing regularly, although  
the one on my 94 F150 is still going strong after 10 years.

Firstly you must always  implicitly obey orders, without attempting to form 
any opinion of your own  regarding their propriety. Secondly, you must consider 
every man your enemy who  speaks ill of your king; and thirdly you must hate 
a Frenchman as you hate the  devil._ Horatio  Nelson_
