How to? '73 Dash Pad Removal Forever...

I would like to remove the cracked dash pad on my '73 Wagoneer. What does the dash look like under the pad? Is it mostly metal like the earlier models? Can I just weld up some holes and paint? Your help is appreciated?

It's all metal with about 14 holes.

Six across the edge facing back, two on each side, two to the right of the center area and two at the bottom of the pad in front of the passenger.

Also two that mount the grab bar on Cherokees.

They're oblong about 5/16" x 1/2" except the four in front of the passenger.

My '84 had some wrinkles in the forming around the center area.

Also, your instrument panel will have gaps where it meets the pad.

My name is Dominique, my mother tongue is french, I own a restored white jeep full Size Cherokee chief 1978 - I really like the FSJ and I decided to engage my time to help you during your restoration, I rebuilt some older and unavailable parts for these. I do this after my main job. Currently I sell bumper nerfs stripe for 81-91 grand wagoneer and clear lens cover for 64-75.
