Did you opt for their extra charge plated Challenger emblem option?
I FedExed my Challenger dash pad out there a few days before New Years eve. I hadn't heard from them and was starting to worry if it got there. I left them a message late last week and they emailed me later they'd got it, and will be contacting me within 7-10 days. I know getting a plated Challenger emblem is a $40-45 option I need to decide. Does it look good, or should I just use a chrome paint pen to detail the emblem after I get my pad back?

Hi,
Yes I got the challenger emblem in chrome and installed. Looks awesome. I think it born with chrome but faded? Also, it took them several weeks to open and evaluate my dash before contacting me with the prices to do it. This is my second ebody dash and they do a great job.

Thanks, I think I will go for that.
I think originally the emblems had a silver paint that wore off or faded away pretty quickly.
I have a Ultimate Rides pad on my T/A, and they plate the emblems standard with their restorations. It may not be 100% OE correct, but it looks great!

Finally got an invoice from Just Dashes in my email yesterday.
$1250, an extra $150 to match my burnt orange, and $45 for a new Challenger emblem. Then $145 for the trip back home to me near Chicago. And an extra 3% if you pay by credit card (though they do provide a nice feature on their checkout page to pay by an E check from your checking account.
They scheduled production in the last week of March so I won't get it back until some time in April.
Not cheap or fast, but as my late dad used to say, the pleasure remains after the price is forgotten, and I'm sure I'll be very happy with it when it's done!

Just Dashes did a 65 Plymouth Sport Fury Dash pad for us, turned out beautiful, exact color match too. Make sure you follow their recommendations for dash pad care and cleaning. I would/will use them again. I have also used ABCMopars, nice guy and nice products.

Anyone heard of Ultimate Rides in Texas for dash pad recovering? If so, are they still in business? Any thoughts on pricing/service, etc...?

I would never buy from UR unless I could see it in person.
Their quality control sux! I had to send back 3 dashes and settled on the 4th.
I would have been SOL if I had bought direct from them, would never answer emails until the distributor got involved.
It was a group buy on another site.
