The hood/fender indentation? Went all the way up to '81 or so, as far as I know.

No, he's talking about the rear quarter panel triangular indentations that are on each side...the passenger side will sometimes have a metal or rubber snubber (depending on the year) for the spare tire, to prevent it from touching the quarter panel itself; the other side is cosmetic. IIRC, 1976 was the last year for those indentations. My understanding is that they were originally there for the soft top bows on the older CJs.

My bad, scrolling down all I saw was the front end in his BF picture

Actually they're from the soft top bows on the M38a1, which the CJ5 is based on. There are a number of vestigial parts on an early CJ5 that descend from the M38a1, such as the cowl battery box cover, hood snorkel cutout, gas tank filler (used by both the CJ5 and M38a1), soft top bow pockets, etc.

My fault, I meant to write M38A1 but was thinking CJ....my mind is going a million places today.

Maybe I'm overly picky but for the CJ-5 for 1972-1974 the "Jeep" script is actually up high on the side panel unlike the 1975-1983 models and all CJ-7. As far as the "Intermediates" go, the 1975 was all on it's own with lower panel script like the later models but still had the older dash and exterior wiper motor.

Also Rommel: You have pictures of dashes there that have all the holes and speaker grilles that appear to be correct. Are you putting the reinforcing on the back side like the originals along the bottom and also behind the heater cable holes? Also it would be nice if you produced the Laredo dash 100% to original spec as they are VERY VERY hard to come by. By Laredo dash I mean with the holes for clock and tachometer in the correct placement and diameter including the locating tabs. Keith460 has all the exact dimensions for their placement and very clear pictures.

Double D fab is the way to go apparently.

Double D is a fabricator that makes custom dash panels for CJs (he's probably a member here, too).

Yes, Dan makes great custom dashes but he does so by laser or plasma cutting so you don't get the stamped contours around the glove box opening.

Until seeing the pictures Rommel put up yesterday I wasn't aware that MD Juan produced dashes with speaker holes and the other holes stamped already. My new replacement tub has a blank dash with only the glovebox in it.

The whole point of this thread is to point out any shortfalls on the replacement tubs and any items that could be changed to make them better and closer to "Bolt-On" as possible which will help all of us, plus will help Rommel get more sales. If the tubs were 100% correct and arrived with an OEM-like E-coat finish ready for paint I bet the sales would increase 10-fold.
