Good morning, guys. I took delivery of another run of dashes last night, and they will boxed/shipped starting today. In fairness, I will send the dashes to those that ordered first. All dashes will be shipped no later than tomorrow, and I will post your UPS tracking number, in a PM to you. I appreciate your patience, as this was unexpected, and a bit of a learning experience as well.

Thank you,
Chris

The big problem with selling "blems" is that when someone else sees and mentions the poor quality, the purchaser never seems to mention he was a cheap azz and tried to save a buck, and it's the sellers reputation that takes the hit.

Same as installing cheaper parts, or customer supplied stuff. When the parts turn out as crap, el cheapo customer never steps up and admits it was his fault - the builders rep takes the hit.

In these cases, let the SELLER beware . . .

All of the blems were turned into tiny pieces of confetti, and thrown away. I am going to do another post, gauging interest in how many people would want to pick them up, at MATS.

just read through the thread and was curious if you ever considered making the dash two pieces to cut down on shipping box size or for the ease of removale

Just my two cents. I believe cutting down the dash would weaken it and create more installation work, measuring and cosmetic effort to restore it back to the good looking, functioning one piece that it already is.

Chris,

Wow that looks great, I have been AWOL from here far too long(Life) and this is first I seen of this. I will show pics to my Barracuda group see if anyone needs one. How's the car running.

I am not producing dashes at this point in time. I may circle back, one day, and start producing them, but, pulling the plug for now. I know nothing about the fit/finish/price/appearance, but, I have heard that Glasstek has a glass dash for A-bodies. I have purchased fenders/hoods/bumpers, etc., over the years from Glasstek, and had no complaints, so, you guys might want to try them.

I sold over 240 dashes, with zero complaints, and would like to thank all of you, for the kind words, along the way. I will not be checking PM's on this site, after this post.

Chris
