NOS dash pad wanted

My GT/CS still has the original black dash pad installed but it is starting to warp and bubble, time to replace. I've yet to find a reproduction with the correct looking grain pattern. Does anyone have a line on a good used or NOS lack dash pad? Or does anyone no of a reproduction that does have the correct OEM grain pattern to it?

There are no correct reproductions that I know of and I have never seen a NOS pad.
I do find some restorable original from time to time. I do not currently have one though.

The reproduction has a very rough grain on it. originals are like smooth leather. Here is a picture of the repop.

Shouldn't this thread be in the Classified section?

Checked my stash: I do have a used original dash pad in excellent condition- no ripples, bulges, speaker perforation area perfect. I can dye it to make it look brand new. What color do you want? $200 + UPS. If you want it, PM me with name& address.

That is a great deal! I am very interested. Do you have experience dying the dash pads? do you have any pictures of it?

Yes, in my 40+ years of restoring Mustangs I've done a few.
