Re: 65 Galaxie Instrument Hood Quest
No, the plastic dash covers fit over the dash pads. They really work nice, my 65 Gal had one when I bought it and I didn't even notice. If your pad is tore up you can grind down the high spots so the cover can fit. The covers for the 65 are getting harder to find they look something like this.
With no pic of your situation I may be wasting my fingers here typing.... But after I build a wooden structure to hold my gauges I saw the instrument panel eyebrow was going to be too low to see the gauges. So I tilted it up but now it would not match up with the long piece. So I bondo'd up the space to make a smooth transition. Seems like you could pretty much do the same thing, get some board, sticks, wire and a glue gun and make a structure that will hold the gauges and also the dash cover. For the wiring you should use these things so when you want to do some work you can detach the wires as a group instead of one at a time.
