Review on center pad...


Lacks stitching!

Posted by Unknown on 2015 Aug 19th

I recently purchased one of these for my 68 Charger along with the lower pad for the left side of the steering wheel. The lower left pad has the stitching along with the glovebox but the center pad does not! It's still a million times better than the old bloated original that was on the car. It is well made. It's too bad they didn't pay attention to the detail of the stitching as with it, this would be a top notch piece!

I remember reading a post or something about these pads awhile back and they said theirs would have correct stiching and they would not sell them if they did not.

Guess someone forgot to tell the Chineese...

So far Tony's repro items have been very nice. I got a pair of the convertible, interior, A-Pillar trim pieces that go on the left & right side of the windshield & they look good. I should test fit them to be 100% positive.

Why anyone would make the dash pads without the stitching is just stupid.  Roll Eyes

Just got off the phone with Tony.  He will not be offering the AC center lower dash pad this spring (2016) for 68-69 Chargers.  Only the non-AC version.  Right now, he has no real plans to offer the AC type.  He said that he doesn't think that he could sell that many of them.  He did say that if he had 200 folks sign up to buy that he would offer them.  Otherwise, it probably is never going to happen. No telling if PG Classics will ever offer that piece.  It's been over 4 years now and they still don't have it to the best of my knowledge.  Maybe with the slowdown in Chinese industry going on right now they will be looking for something to do----like make some lower dash pads.  I'm not holding my breath on that. 

I wonder if that piece could be made out of solid blow molded plastic?  I know that is not correct and would not have the resiliency like the original but at this point, who cares.  If it looked correct I'd buy one.  Sure would like a lot better than the one I have now that is pulling away from the metal backing.   I mentioned this to Tony but he said that he wouln't be interested in pursuing that angle. 

I did thank Tony for what he is offering.  Was a real nice guy to talk to on the phone.

He would sell more AC's. They warp and distort terribly. Far worse than the non-AC style. Many would buy a new one if it was correct.

From Tony’s website.

Estimated Arrival: 2022

I was going to e-mail Tony to check on these...

Then I saw this on his website:

Note: When an item is in stock, it will be indicated below the photo and be listed on our home page. No need to call or email to check if they are available.

I guess I'll just keep checking his website.

 I just ordered a set of these lower dash pads in black for an A/C car from PG Classics.

I'm literally taking a shot in the dark, here.  scope

The pictures on their website of these parts look like they were taken under water -at midnight- through a sheet of crumpled waxed paper.

Their 15% off discount code (SUMMER139) ends today.

So, I said what the hell - I'll take a shot.  shruggy

Stay tuned...
