So I get this OPGI flyer and look what they now have. https://www.opgi.com/el-camino/L241195/
An entire new dash for the 78-80 Malibu/El Camino. So i'm glad the new interior parts are expanding to offer this. But then again i'm kinda ticked why they didn't offer this for the 73-77's before the 78-80 models. I would love to be able to purchase an entire new dash for my white/maroon 76 Laguna S3.

agreed. we are stuck swapping good used or having JustDashes redo ours. Hey, at least you're not 1973, our dashes are 1 year only!

Dashes seem to be a big topic of conversation lately. I've seen more than a few discussions on the topic, particularly about the expense if you can find one.
I saw a classified recently where a guy listed a complete dash, busted all to heck for $800. It stoked a little controversy.
However, another guy recently removed his and took it to an upholsterer and walked away with really nice dash for a little less than that.
That looks to be about the best option at the moment.
