They fit fairly well; the trick is getting enough glue on the front edge and then securing it while the glue cures. When you dry fit the top, you'll be surprised how well the mold is, however don't be tempted to just going with the dry fit, it will come loose.

Once glued, you will lose access to the dash top mount speakers. The bad part about that isn't the speakers, but you will also be covering up one of the fasteners that holds the dash in place, so if you find yourself with a service job that requires removing the dash, say like a heater core replacement, you'll have to pry up the dash cover to remove the dash.

Thanks guys - and the pictures helped a lot!!..

Looks like a easy way to go, and considering that it is a cover if part of the original dash needs to be trimmed away to make it lay correctly then that'd be okay too..

On the other hand, for the 1/2 cost of a dash cover ($125 + tax, shipping) you can pull a series 2 dash (88-93) from wrecking yard - and that will never crack

Series 1 dashes are real prone to UV cracking, seems like they fixed the problem on series 2 cars, never seen a cracked series 2 dash.

It is way more work and you may have to search for your color, but its an option if you happen to be a purist.
