the i looked where the nuts where on that dash to find the ones to remove the old dash out. when reaching under the dash where there was a space to put my arm up. there was the bolt, it's like back then they made it where you could work on your own car, crazy huh.

i hope some time when i want to tackle the dash gauge cluster, i'll repaint and detail it out. i though i'd do that at this point in time but i could not figue it out. it looked like a big pain to get it out.
