Crazy, this is my post! From way back on old 3TC garage.

Anyway, bad news is guys the fix didn't last. The flexible bondo and dash expand/contract at different rates, along with fact that the old foam continued to crack in spots. It did look great for about a year, then got a couple cracks a year since.

BOBLOOK, any chance you have my old build thread archived too? Called "3TC Wagon with Fresh New Look" or something? Anyway, I need to make another for the EcoTec swap I did a couple years back.

Thanks,

Just wanted to post an update. I ended up having a local shop, Alameda Auto Upholstery (510) 523-7551, recover my dash and I'm really happy with it! Even filled in the useless "tray" on the passenger side. Been holding up great for about 6 months so far.

Jose, who is also a an import wagon enthusiast - has a clean Datsun - wrapped the wheel and also the custom console I built. The results:
