No Dash in my Car!

So, i just walked outside, and looked at my car, and the dash wasn't in it!

Ok, so i took the dash out, and it's sitting in my shop with the first coat of black dye on it! The entire dash, not just the center console. Let me tell you, this is NOT a mod for the faint of heart! It took my room-mate and myself about an hour and a half to get the damn thing out... i don't want to even think about putting it back yet.

But... it's gonna look sweet as hell when it's done! I'll post pics later if i can borrow my parent's camera!

there are some bolts up underneath the dash that you have to take off, and a quick connect plug. MAKE SURE YOU UNPLUG THE BATTERY AND LET IT SIT FOR A WHILE BEFORE YOU UNPLUG IT!!! The quick connect plug is on a yellow cable under there...

no, you just need to lay down on your back with your head under the dash so you can see what you're doing. You'll see the bolts, they're around the big black cylinder that's under there (the airbag)

aye, wait about 15ish minutes AFTER disconnecting the battery for the capacitors or whatever they are to drain, then it should be all good

you can buy a descent cam for $150-200, use it one day to take pics, then return the next day & you'll get a refund. just make sure they give you a refund & not store credit
