theyre from speedhut the bigger ones are 41/2" and the smaller ones are 25/8". ill toss up some pictures of the finished product. Ended up painting the mounts i made in black instead of leaving them silver like in the pictures.

Nice! These are the ones im looking at.

Definitely post some of the finished product.

a bit of a mile stone for myself, finally finished the dash...or at least 90% of it. Still missing the glove box panel and final assembly.

A long weekend is coming up hoping to get the gauges and dash installed in the car.

Dude that looks sweet, interesting way to go about this over doing bondo.

How long did this take you?

Thanks, ended up taking about 15 hours for the stitching and then a bit more time to actually put it on, haven't finished the glove box either. I didn't go the bondo route however I did fix the cracks prior to covering them up was worried I'd be able to see the cracks through the material once it was stretched out.

Can we get more info on the dash cover itself? Did the whole thing from scratch I'm assuming? How did you make the pattern and how much stretching did it require?

@Calz the cover is all from scratch. An upholsetry buddy gave me a hand with the stitching. The pattern was just a picture in my head, sketched it out and then figured it was something id like to see happen. As far as the material goes it didn't stretch much at all we had to do a lot of "invisible seams".
