Charlie,

The dash and door are made from the same piece of plywood, so a replacement door would never match your dash. You need to speak to Prestige Autowood or one of the other people who make replacement dash panels.

And I need to get one on order too for my project.

Understand. Unfortunately, the shop that refinished my dash lost the door. So, I have a beautiful dash. They will try to make a new one but I fear it will not suffice.

Surely you say to them - there's two sorts of problems in this world and that ones yours.

Make you a new door? - it will be nothing short of a miracle if they get it to an acceptable match. They owe you a complete new dash! IMHO.

Unfortunately it's not their opinion.
