Oddly enough the dash. Although it once was a air force truck
Technician: Wayne, Journeyman replied 6 months ago

Hi Thank you for the response

that is called dash faceplate

if you have the old one you can take it to a fabricator to get the new one made

I hope this helps you

Actually no I looked at my account and I was charged $31 for one question and I am concerned. The question was supposed to be $5. I would like the $26 back from that.
Technician: Wayne, Journeyman replied 6 months ago

HI

That you need to take up with customer service

$5.00 is a deposit, then when an expert answers you

they charge the balance, but you don't pay unless you give a 4 or more star rating

I am a user on JA just like you , a sub contractor working from home
