    Truck gasket, Dash Pads

    Post  mobilemowers on Fri Apr 01, 2016 1:00 am

    FYI in local yard got a trunk gasket out of late 80's 4 door. Put in my 1977 2 door had to trim 1 inch off works great. Saved me a headache. Last year ordered stuff off ebay. Not right and my stuff couldn't be put back on.

    Also appears Buick dash pads are the same. The Pontiac doors are the same the book states.

    Cool.  Post some pics of the Buick dash pad.  That's good to know, oh and welcome to the Forum!

    Guess I have many Buick Dash pads for sale. Looks like you can just trim the side?

    Thanks for posting the pics!  That does look like it could work with a little trimming as you say.  Looks like you'd also need to make a new mounting hole, but overall I think that might be workable.  Interesting.

    I got two Buick's in stock that I am selling. The Chevy one was in a mint 88 ish but someone tried prying it. I luckily got it straightened ok. My is single radio and red but i'll paint it. Someday if I find the AM / FM radio for it will be stereo.

    I seen some caps advertise these caps do they work?

    This was on the seat of a 77 Buick. Rusty and digital so to speak.
