Well I finely got the dash cover on. I bought one of these. It is supposed to just snap over your damaged pad. Well mine did no such thing. I think my pad was too far gone and swollen to much. No matter how much I tried I could not get the cover to stay on.
I figured it might just need some finessing. So I got out my favorite finessing tools
A couple small cuts later produced this fine masterpeice
To which the dash cover fit perfectly.
