I have a crazy question. Is there a kit on the market can be used to repair cracks in the dash board. I spoke to a guy that repairs them they were asking 700 dollars. That is crazy

Thanks for the feedback, Mike. I hadn't thought about that. Best bet is a nice, soft, original, but they are getting harder and harder to find.

I have a dash cap on mine. I wouldn't recommend one. In this Texas heat my is really wavy across the top. I would say it is up a half inch in the high spots.

Just buy a good/decent used dash if yours is in really bad shape. They pop up once in awhile on eBay and will save you a ton of $$$.

There are dash pad caps on the market for much less than someone like Dash Specialists will charge to repair one. Here is a link with pictures: http://6364cadillac.ning.com/photo/albums/dash-pad-caps

I think some members have had limited luck repairing their own. Maybe someone that has taken a stab at it will see this and chime in.

 So my 63 guide matic headlamps stay on low beam all the time. I have so far bypassed the system and everything works normal. I have been thru the trouble shooting in the manual but this is where the confusion begins.on my car when the power relay is powered I have low beam and when its not powered I have highbeam, this appears to be opposite what the diagnosis says should be correct.The wiring is all original and no wires have been mixed up.has anyone ever unplugged the 2 wire connector…

I hope someone can help solve these two electrical problems that appeared one after the other.

By way of background: The car, a '64 Eldorado has very limited use. It was at a restoration shop for 15 months until last January-  that supposedly did a bunch of wiring repairs including rebuilding the gas gauge that still hasn't worked properly, and the clock that hasn't worked, and re-soldering the broken wires in the drive door. All window and seat controls appear to be…
