I am going to Replace my Dash pad, Crash pad and Wood Dash itself.

Wood Dash - Would like to get the most original - English Walnut correct? Who has the best quality most original.

Dash pad and Crash Pad - Rimmer Bros? Moss? TRF? Who makes the best one and why? Any problems with any of them fitting?

Steven,
Try these guys, you get to select any wood you like.
Wood Dash
Notice the really tight and even gap around the glovebox lid in the one I bought from them
Check the product information link/tab for more info.

For dash pads and crash pads go with TRF.

I would buy from the UK as the quality of some USA suppliers for these items is questionable.

This company makes dashboards that are works of art, I've seen them at a show or two and they are stunning. I would have bought one from them, but, I had already made my own.

Ok pads ordered from trf. But what is the most original dash. English walnut? Which option is most like the one that would have been on the car in 1965.

Steven,
That pic on my post is of the dash on my TR4, it is Walnut.
The finish is, hand rubbed pure Tung oil, polished with 0000 steel wool in between applications.

So I got the Crash Pad set from TRF finally.

It came with Door Top Crash pads. I have never seen these before. Did they dome on all factory cars or was it an option? I cant even find pics of them on online. Any advice?


Also, The Handle on the passenger side. Has anyone installed one of these? Do i use contact cement and then the Vinyl goes around the Metal and I glue it?

Anyone have a link to an instruction forum or a link to a post where this process is discussed? I cant seem to find one.

i hope I understand your question correctly.

The Handle on the passenger side. Has anyone installed one of these? Do i use contact cement and then the Vinyl goes around the Metal and I glue it?

If you are asking a bout part # 650306 in the attached link, then no you do not glue. There should be holes in the metal door to screw this part into.

Red, not the door handle. I mean the handle on the lower dash crash pad. By the passengers knees. Just under the glove box.
