Please do not let this happen to you! The left hand lower corner of 1963-1967 dash clusters is very vulnerable! Without the headlight motor switch in place there is a large slot that is very weak if box is mishandled! Be sure to leave plenty of space and use adequate boxes and cushioning materials!
In case you were wondering, we did repair this cluster!
Please make sure that when shipping a Dash Cluster you use the proper materials. Bubble wrap the cluster and place it in a big enough box stuff the rest of the box with newspaper or packing paper DO NOT USE POPCORN because this material does not protect the cluster and it gives it wiggle room, which can lead to a broken or cracked cluster (see pictures). Even if you insure it the claim will not go through because of poor packing.
WHEN SENDING PARTS, PLEASE BE SURE TO INCLUDE OUR RESTORATION ORDER FORM.
