    Re: Replace/refinish rear dash

    A few years ago I had a 97 z-28 that had a very faded plastic front dash. I covered it with black leather from a fabric store and it came out great. Would like to do the same for my platinum V, but with a light grey leather (to match the interior).

    Thoughts?

    I think a suede type material would look the best.

    I think you are right...wouldn't glare so much from the sun like the leather would. I would love to find a cts/cstv rear deck from a salvage yard to test with...unless anyone has a rear deck from their V they would like to sell.

    Make sure you cover it with Automotive grade suede or leather, the fabric store stuff will fade in the sun (speaking from experience!)
