Hi Listers: I really don't know if anyone will be interested, but I opted to
have my early '74 B dash restored rather than use a cap (mine was too far
gone for that) or try to put an aftermarket dash on the metal frame. I don't
think I could have made it look right.
In our town, there is a company called Dash Specialties. I have read their
adds for years in Hemmings, but always thought they just did muscle cars and
"56 Desotos and the like.
Anyway, I took the dash to them and chatted with the owners. They assured me
that they could restore it to new. (It really was VERY bad, with huge chunks
I picked it up this week am absolutely thrilled with the appearance.It looks
like it came from a new car. (I have never seen a new MGB, but I am sure this
dash is as good as a new one.)
Anyway, I am not affilliated with them, just thought I would let you know
that there is an alternative to using illfitting parts and a heck a lot of
work I understand making the aftermarket fit.
Cost me $500.00, but I am delighted.
Thanks for reading
