Anybody know if one of the suppliers carries an Emberglo dash pad? Laurel Mountain can only provide the parchment dash pad with the emberglo interior.

I doubt it, I needed a Palomino one for my 65 and could not find it, they all recommended dyeing one and I did. It worked out great!

What year? I have one that I recently removed from my project 1966 fastback. It has no cracks. I'd sell it "as is" for $40 plus shipping.

Not sure, but I think the dashpad for an emberglo interior was more of a burgundy color. Yeah, ugly, that's what I thought so I painted mine emberglo.

Briarpatch, I used the ACCUMATCH dye from CJ's pony parts. One can did my pad and both door panels.

The correct Emberglo dash pad color is Dark Emberglo, a sort of cinnamon color. No one makes these, you'll have to dye one. If you're converting a 65 to Emberglo, you'd have to dye one anyway, because there was never an original 65 Emberglo.

Will the Accupatch dye cover any color dash pad? Mine is a tan/beige color. I know this isn't a correct color for my '65 but I think they are awesome looking. I am hoping that I can get it looking like 22GT's car. I am also running a 351W and T-5 so originality isn't part of the equation. Thanks to all for your help and advice.

22GT is correct, the original is sort of a burgundy color. You'll have to get parchment and dye/spray. Technically not correct, but it does look better than the original burgundy in my opinion.

I covered a Black pad with Palomino dye, clean it real well, and just go with light coats until fully colored to suit. I've heard you can also use a light coat of primer first, but not sure what kind of primer you would use.

Hey 22GT, is the correct color dash pad the same color as the pony seat inserts on the Emberglo/Parchment scheme?
