If you have a '69-'85 911/912/930 chances are the lower dashboard is looking pretty rough. Typically, the foam padding is peeling away at the corners, the Radio/HVAC openings are sagging, the plastic bits and pieces are fading, the glovebox door is misaligned, and the list goes on. We've seen countless restorations and resto-mods that are absolutely flawless until you sit in the car and are faced with that gloomy factory dash. This is an area that really bothered us in our own restorations, so we finally developed a solution The Rennline Dash Backdate Kit.
The Rennline Dash Backdate kit is a fascia that installs in place of all that OEM ugliness. It does away with the original foam padding, the glovebox door, the seatbelt warning light, and all the other non-necessities. In their place is a beautiful fascia that incorporates a polished extrusion similar to that of the early 911's but in one full length rather than the broken-up sections. Also reminiscent of the early 911's are the extrusion inserts which are available in carbon fiber or basketweave leather. This may very well be the final piece of your restoration/resto-mod puzzle. *Note Your switch locations may differ from photos. Headlight Knob included; other knobs available separately.

Installation is relatively straight forward and involves the following steps:
- Removing your glovebox and all accessories from the dashboard.
- The Rennline Dash Backdate kit comes with provisions for the early HVAC Control, ignition switch, and headlight switch. If you would like to retain other switches, then you would need to drill the necessary holes into the dash overlay.
- If you would like installation a radio, there is a perforated punch out in the extrusion. You would just need to cut the hole in the extrusion insert
- Install the fascia over the existing dash frame using the supplied self-drilling hardware
- Install the extrusion to the fascia using the supplied flat head sheet metal screws
- Slide inserts into place (basketweave comes as a roll that needs to be cut to size and adhered into place)
- Install extrusions end caps
- Install Accessories
