Learn from my experience, purchased a reproduction dashpad (not Ford tooling), after lots of trimming, frustrations and a few curses, it still would not conform to the metal dash in my 65 coupe. After reading the review on this pad, I purchased it. What a difference, took it out of the box and slid right in place....tighten the two nuts and replace the trim. This is without a doubt the easiest part I have installed since starting on my restoration project. Highly recommend this part and CJ Pony parts.
