The DashPad Factory

I posted a couple weeks ago asking if anyone had done business with them, and it received little response. I assume that's because they just started making dashes for our cars. I found them on Facebook. The sales lady, Alannah, had posted in the group for "Third Generation Camaro and Firebird". She was very polite and even offered me a nice discount. The dash pad is produced using the factory metal frame, so when you purchase, you will need to return your old dash pad as a core. Shipping was prompt and Alannah was quick to answer DMs on Facebook and even answered the phone when I called. I never had to leave a message.
The installation was as easy as a direct OEM replacement. It fits perfectly, and I have a gauge pod installed on the A pillar that could've interfered. If I had to complain about anything, it would be that they don't drill out the holes for the mounting screws around the defrost vents. That set me back about 7 min

I highly recommend the product.
Here are their links if anyone is interested -
