Completed gauge update and install in the NPD dash...overall happy with the pad but had to craft screw anchor mounts above gauge cluster and trim down top edge near the cluster so the pad would seat closer to the metal portion of the dash. Also had to drill 2 holes next to the upper gauge housing anchor clips to accept the gauge house support pins. All in all, happy with the way it all came together....
That looks good,very encouraged by your work.
Appreciate the comps! Good luck with your resto work too!
Happy to share tips and tricks learned along the way.
looks really nice Tom. I've got an NPD pad for my project and will definitely reference this when I get to that point!
Looks very nice TommyRS70! I will be referencing your information when I do my NPD dash pad in the future.
So, any new updates to the work required to getting this pad to fit the best? I will be ordering my pad next week, and want all the tips and fixes everyone has come up with, thanks everyone for posting, and showing the approach you used, to get that part to fit correctly !!
My NPD pad came up 1/2" short in length. Had to fill the gap with closed cell foam painted to match the pad.
So, are you speaking about the trimmed edge that joins the a-pillar molding being 1/2 too short? I haven't installed the trim yet but I remember thinking it looked a bit short.
