    I'm swapping over from a burgundy dash to a red dash. Dash pad, vents, dash, console, and Z-28 steering where are PERFECT! Like to trade for same in red, or purchase. Car is dissembled, but if interested will provide pics.

    Interior parts

    If what you have is the dark carmine I would be interested in the console box and lid depending on condition and price. Any pics

    That perfect dash pad can easily get you $500.00 or more if you decided to sell. Mint 79-81 dash pads are rare as hens teeth...especially the reds!

    Have you considered dying them to the color red you're changing to? You might truly be better off going that route. ;)

    I think I'm going to dye the dash pad, just because it's so nice, however I am going to switch to black on the lower dash. I do have the console, and it's perfect, and it is in Carmine red. Don't you love the 1981 interior color mess? All that red, and a burgundy dash... I'm going to go with a new black console & lid, so I can send pics of that. PM me. Looking for nice black lower dash, love to trade. Also have the Z-28 steering wheel in Carmine, looking for a black one.

    I read that again from top to bottom, and the switch has made this confusing..
    All my stuff is Carmine red (Burgundy), and the final decision is to change all to
    black, steering wheel, lower dash, console. Hope that adds clarity!;)

    Again, if your lower dash is mint, why not dye that black? It's the easiest color to change to coverage wise, and you know your dash fits...switching to another could result in fitment issues. As a side note, all lower dashes were originally molded in black, and were dyed to match the color interior the car was to be made with. Something to think about...

    That is the route I would go if I were doing what you are. [​IMG]

    I had mine hydro dipped in carbon fiber and it turned out pretty sweet with the grain texture and all
