You'll need to remove the windshield to access the screws in the front which
holds the dasp pad down. There are the obvious bolts on the side and 2
underneath the dash.
You'll also need to disconnect the harness on the driver's side and the coil
wiring and oil pressure wire. The easiest theng to do is hook up all the
electrical gauges and what not on the dash before installation but you can
do it whichever way you please.
I would remove the dash pad only when the pad is warm and softer and the
same with installation.
Have a good copy of the schematics available before doing anything.

> Take out the seats so you can lie on your back upside down, disconnect the
battery, then take off the steering wheel, all the instruements, the
switches, and the glovebox and door. Remove the lower radio console, and be
sure to get the three screws in the front that point up into the dash. Then
remove the screws on each side of the dash, and remove the screws that are
undernewth the dash. Eventually you will have removed every screw and bolt
that you can see, and the dash should pull out easily. When it is loose,
try and pull the foam cap off the dash as well, and when taking out the
aluminium strip that surrounds the dash be very gentle as you pry off the
clips (do it from the back of the dash so you can see what you are
doing)that hold it on or you will break off the snall nipples that keep it

It is easy, but tedious.
