    Got a question about the part of the lower dash on passenger side . Does same piece fit 70-81 or did it change when the dash pad changed ? This is the part with glove box and radio in it.

    Yes, that part is interchangeable.
    The 79-81 dash covers the part with the "Fasten Seat Belt" light.
    (The light was moved to the right hand side of the dash bezel for the later years.)

    The holes for the radio might be different but I'm not sure about that.

    Ok, so are you saying that top half of it goes up behind dash pad? Cause it has that weird curve at top on left side and thats what was throwing me off.

    Yes, part of the lower dash is hidden by the 79-81 dash.

    BTW... the 70-72 dash has no “Fasten Seat Belt” light.
