Is there a difference between 70-72 dashes and 73. If so what? What is the best way to care for them to prevent cracking?
Thanks Tod

I think there is a slight difference in curvature. I have a 73 that I ordered the full dash cover for. I was warned by the gentleman at Motorsport that it might not fit. Unfortunately it did not, so they exchanged it for the earlier model dash cover.

Prevent Cracking

The best prevention for cracking is baby oil. The armour all crap closes and clogs the pores of the vinyl causing it to dry out and crack. If your dash is in really bad shape, vaseline works even better than baby oil.

I had asked my Z car mechanic here in Seattle about preventing cracking of the dash... and what he said was that you want to protect against UV rays...
Tint the Windows--use a sun shade.

Make sure the protective you use doesn't have alcohol in it.
