My experience with the dash overlay is that it doesnt fit at all. After
getting frustrated with trying to make it fit, I threw the old one away
and used the overlay - only - instead. I glued foam to the inside to
make the distance correct, and trimmed the outside with leather. The
result is actually a lot neater than the original thing.
