Depends on the fit. Put in place and see, mark and cut to suit, as the tags do vary in location.

No worries, easy tip and the best way I found to fit new (or even old OEM) pads.

Looks good! Is the deluxe dash new? Looks that way, is it the drake version or an OEM style with just stick on vinyl over the bases?

they are the drake versions and they are metal backed....a lot of trimming and detailing

How do they apply? Just glue, or with tabs as the '67 deluxe?

Melted??? So they have plastic pins like the steering wheel emblems? The 67s have metal tabs that stick thru and fold over... any pics?

I ask as I am looking into making custom hand laid veneer dashes for 67-68 and also brushed aluminum inserts for the two years too...
