    Has anyone installed or used the LMC plastic dash pad cover fer 50 bucks?? I would hate to waist my $$ on it if it is a piece of crap! It is a slip over type of plastic shell for our dash pads. Any one have this product? Or should I just get a complete dash pad???

    I've herd bad things about those cheap plastic covers,mostly that the fit is really poor.I was thinking of one myself untill I did a search and found all this negative feedback.My opinion is don't waste your hard earned money.

    I've never seen this one, but all of the plastic dash caps I have seen were Fugly. I got a Made in Canada dash pad for $90 when I first got my Blazer (dash was REALLY bad).

    You can probably find them cheaper at car shows, like the one in pleasonton(goodguys). paid 75 for mine. I think it was made in canada, too.

    Hey Guys,

    Do you have a name brand for this "Made in Canada" dash pad. I live in Canada and would like to hunt them down even if it is crap.

    Thanks,

    No idea, 72Blazerod. All I know is it came in a plain cardboard box and had a "Made In Canada" sticker on it. My original had one too. This one looks to either be a REALLY good repop or it was made using the original tooling and processes. I suspect it was made by the company who originally made them for GM.
