I have one in my shed, you won't get a pic from me though.

Funny story, about 3 or 4 years ago somebody who shall go nameless (it was shawn W) and myself pulled a pefect dash out of a junkyard ea81. If you done it you know it's a pain in the rump roast. Then he knocked over our wheelbarrow with the dash on it and messed it up pretty good. we left it there.

I've got more crack than Oprah here. I've have seen a couple places on the internet that will do restoration like

Looks pretty slick. I'm curious to know if anyone has any opinions on this kinda thing

I've got a blue one sitting in a shed waiting to go in my Brat. No picture because it's 20 miles away though.

83 coupe. The dash is pristine, not a blemish. Gray.

Don't believe me, too bad.

One of my 83 BRATs had a perfect one and the other BRAT looked like the Grand Canyon. The 84 Hatch's was un-cracked as well.

YES! The car has been kept in the dark. The last one I tried to get imploded and I'm sure started a black hole. (In my current dash)

Id almost kill for that dash today too if it makes it hurt less. After a day of pulling nearly an entire car apart and then using the pull and saves crap wheel borrows on a 105 degree day I think this is still my fault and not excusable.

I feel your pain having pulled three dashes in my time. Worst job to do on a subaru; worse than even pulling the heater box.
