Does anyone know if these are any good?

I need something for my '85. It's pretty ugly.

Thanks!

Not worth the trouble, you're better off swapping a good used dash in there IMHO.

I wrestled with one for several weeks, and ended up needing an old priest and a young priest. The part ended up in a dumpster, forcefully hurled.

I don't see how one would overcome the warpage of the subject dash-- and if it weren't warped, you probably wouldn't be needing the cover. I also have no idea how to fit the thing to all the little spaces it needs to go. I'm sure someone with a proper skill set could make it work, but that sure wasn't me!
