    Default 504 Dashboard Questions

    Two quick questions for 504 aficionados:

    Advertisement


    - Are cracked 504 dashboards able to be repaired or reskinned? If so, has anyone had this done?

    - I read in an old thread that the "later dashboards are uglier than the earlier ones". My question is, what differences are there between earlier and later model dashboards, apart from centre console and the tacho instead of the clock?

    Many thanks froggers.

    I posted a comment a while back about a company in Coburg, Vic that remoulds and recovers the dash. Pugrambo indicated there is a place in Sydney that does the same. I found an uncracked one at a wreckers in Keilor Victoria but he wanted $110 for it, sight unseen plus freight. I am not sure of the cost of getting one refurbished. I found the company in a car restoration magazine if that is any help.

    Thanks Peter.
    You're not talking about 'The Dashboard Doctor' in Coburg are you?

    I've had 3 done in Croydon (Melbourne). Did a good job. Knew the make and model. You may need to send it to him rather than expect a changeover. Could take a week or so.
    It's the Dashboard Centre 17 Coolstore Rd Croydon 3136 (03) 9725 7955

    Thanks Barry. Do you recall the approximate cost of getting them done?

    PEUGEOT
    504 76-82 $ 305
    505 80-85 $ 420

    Hope I never need to renew my Dashboard skin!

    I bought some vinyl and dad and i did it ourselves.

    Bit of stretching and cutting, looks good 6 years on.
