    You may have to put some photos of the creases so we can see what you mean to best advise or check against other cars.

    I agree. May be hard to tell from this photo but it should be smooth through that entire area.

    Welcome to FEBO. You should post in the welcome wagon area and tell us about yourself and show us your car!

    The same lines are in my 73, it follows the lines in the padded dash. Leave the factory lines there.

    Owned my 73 Challenger for 43 years , those lines are factory and the dash pad follows those same lines, don't remove them. When the top pad is installed the lines flow togather

    Those are not the lines he is talking about, his has a crease in the flat area.
    I see these are your first posts, welcome to the site from Michigan and go to the Welcome Wagon and introduce yourself.
