Its got several cracks. Main one's just above the glove box. Smaller ones are either side near the speaker holes. The effort it took to get out, I wouldnt be suprised if the cracks happend whilst it was being put in!

Interesting note: It has a sticker on the bottom saying QAC 9-7-81.

Nice seeing the work you're doing there Scott. Flopsy is only 185 cars after yours, and her dash/centre console/binnacle is still cack nearly 5 years after I bought the car :?

You never know, you may just have inspired me to do something about it!

I removed the dash from 1274 and gave it to a professional to be repaired. For 60 quid they did an excellent job - looked fantastic. About one month later and all the cracks reappeared.

I have yet to find a dash repair that has lasted more then a few months Sad

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

Hi All,

Ed at Delorean one has some NEW dashboards. Just bought one for my D.

Took a while to fit but looks a million dollars which is coincidentally what he charged me.

Hi Chris,

As far as I'm aware they are dash's that Ed has had done. He's very cagey about discussing them?
He sells "rebuilt" deloreans for $72K. The Dash's are stock that he's got put by for the $72K cars.

The one I bought is a very well made dash identical to the original. However I would say that the rubber is quite soft. Don't know if that's just because my old one was rock hard and brittle. As when I riveted the Chassis number onto the new dash it did compress quite easy at the ends of the chassis plate?

Hope this helps.

Regards
Darren
