I think I may have seen a carpet-type dashboard cover on Rock Auto but that isn't what I was looking for so I disregarded.

Yep, I always put a little in my 2-Stroke mixture too for preventative medicine.

My daughter-in-law had a 2006 Cadillac DTS between the years 2013 and 2020.  The first year, the check engine light came on and a scan revealed a catalytic converter problem.  The local mechanic who serviced her car said he did not believe there was anything wrong with the catalytic converter and suggested dumping a can of Seafoam in the gas tank.  We did, and drove it about fifty miles, at which point the light went out and stayed out for about 12 months.  When it happened the second time, she took it to the same mechanic, got the same suggestion, we repeated the treatment, and it solved the problem.  From that point on, we skipped the mechanic and simply poured a can of Seafoam in the gas tank as soon as the check engine light appeared.  We did this successfully until she sold it and bought a new Jeep Cherokee in 2020.  She shared this info with the purchaser and, while I don't know whether they followed this regimen or not, I do know that the car is still on the road.  I would call that a win!

Howdy neighbor, I'm in Airdrie, Alberta, Canada. Just a hop from Calgary.
I'll be doing the bodywork type repair as well. I haven't run across any dash pads on the market.

Welcome aboard.  My dashpad has cracks and I am going to go the "bodywork" route.  I am going to use a flexible body filler called Porpoise Putty.  It may not look perfect, or stock appearing, but there is nothing perfect or stock about my project.  There is a thread in the My Project Section called Pinto Powered Mustang Roadster if you are interested in viewing.

Don't forget the 5 second cameo in a 1984 movie called Top Secret.
Took a girl to the movie, in a Pinto.  She saw the scene and looked at me horrified!

Hello gang. Just joined up today. My first car ever was a baby blue 1975 Pinto.  Bought a 1976 Pinto last fall, sitting covered up in the back yard. Looking forward to spring to pull it out and start driving it.  I live up in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.  Snow is starting to melt and it's warming up too. I know these Pintos are a hoot to drive in the snow and ice, but treacherous as well!

I have been doing some cosmetic work, just to make sure it looks good for the Friday night shows.  New upholstery, carpet is new.  Engine was rebuilt, brakes and tires all good.  Been having some electrical issue with starting, but working my way through that.  Thinking most of it is old crunchy cables.

But, my first question for the forum - I need a new black dash pad.  I really don't want to buy a dash cap, not fond of the look of them.  May be a last resort, but does anyone have any leads or direction for a new OEM style dash pad?  I really don't think I have the skill to redo the cap myself, looked at some videos of others that have done it - not my thing.  Kinda like doing body work - if you don't know how...

Anyway, that's it.  I'm looking forward to going through the various chats and topics, lots of reading to you.

Thanks, Toby.

PS: I have a 289 from a '66 Galaxie sitting in the warehouse where I work, but that's for much later

I always use a can of Seafoam Transmission Conditioner when I do the tranny fluid and filter change on my Impala.  It and many others from the era before and after my 2008 model have a condition where when you take off it doesn't move right away, then catches and "slams" into gear.  You have to get on the throttle gingerly when taking off.  Anyway, I think the Seafoam Trans Conditioner seems to help as I have close to 300k on it now and this condition has been happening since before 30k.
