Report 63 Avanti vinyl dash cover Installion in 1963-64 Avanti Posted April 19, 2011 I just purchased a 63 Avanti. I have a new vinyl cover that I need to glue to the dash, and install gauges. What I need to know is the best way to install the vinyl. Should I put it out in the sun to warm up to make it more flexible ? Also, on the cut outs for the gauges. There are spaces in the vinyl where the gauges go. How much do I cut out of these spaces to put the gages in, do I drill a hole, cut an X. Thank you for any help you can give me.
