Hello all, I'm new to the forum and have a million questions but I'll start with this one. When using a dash pad cover versus the actual dash does it have to slide over the old crusty dash. I wouldn't think anyone would want an old cracked, crusty dash under a new dash cover. At least I wouldn't. Can the original dash be taken out and the dash cover be put in its place? This is not a resto but a race car build. I recall an episode of street outlaws when Chief debuts the crow. It shows him painting pieces of the interior. I swear it looked as if he put a plastic dash cover over the bare dash. There was no gauge cluster or anything. .
