    Haven't had much time to do anything with it yet.Here are a couple of pics I took just laying stuff in.Right out of the box you can tell this thing is WAAAAY better than the oer.It actually has a place to mount the gauge cluster.I was just messing around and laid in a cluster housing and and old bezel.I think this is going to be a great thing for our cars.Of course The truth will be in the install.Which I don't have much time for at the moment..It's rigid like the oem and not floppy like the oer.I'll post more latter when I have a chance to mess with it more.

    Would it be possible to post up close pics of the front edge and where the gauge cluster mounts?

    Glad to see this, I have a 78 that's in desperate need of one and I "was" going to purchase one of the OER dashs but I have heard negative about them so I am happy to see that NPD has a well made product. Looks like thats my choice, cant wait to see it installed in yours

    I think everyone wants to see the back edge that mates against the metal dash, as it is usually a mess on the OER piece.
