dash pad replacement in a 1968

    I'm looking for someone in my area (Mt Holly, NJ 08060) who is able to replace the dash pad in my '68 fastback. I think my hands are just too large as is the rest of my body.

    Dash pad replacement is really not that tough a task. You can use a longer screwdriver to install the trim screws up by the glass if that is the area that concerns you. A simple trick is to poke the screw through a piece of tape and then use the ends of the tape to hold it up in place against the tip of the screwdriver. Just tear the tape off before setting the screw.

    Thanks for your response. The trim screws are not the problem, I can get to them with a long screwdriver. Aparently there is a bolt at each end of the dash and I've had no success in finding the nut so I can remove them and thereby remove the dash.

    yeah, those are a PITA!
    the passenger side is not really horrible with the glove box removed. They are at the tip of the pad basically. They are small as well. If you remove the heater control panel on the DS it might be easier. I wish I had better tips to give you. I agree they are difficult to get to.
