OK gang!! Ive spent a couple evenings standing on my head under the dash trying to clear the deck for my friend the painter to paint the dash when we paint the car. I have a new bezel set for inst. cluster, radio & above glovebox. I was able to get the glovebox out of the way along with the bezel above (I got the lock apart, but don't know the trick to reassembly--but that can wait for now). I also got the ash tray, radio & heater control all out, all relatively straight forward. I also removed the heater housing, reconditioned & installed new core & motor. Now I've run into a couple of snags. I want to remove the dash strip & instument cluster assembly. I think I can get the lighter & I was able to get the knob off the wiper so it should clear the deck for those items, however the headlight switch is being stubborn. I pushed the button on the side of the switch, but the knob/shaft won't release (could I be pushing it too far?). The next snag is that I have all the obvious screws out of the dashpad & it doesn't want to come out. Finally, the real snag causing alot of time standing on my head is the instrument cluster. I was able to get at the (4) screws on the bottom, but the top ones are hidden behind a wiring harness. I'm afraid if I Am able to eventually get those out that I'll never be able to "blind reassemble" them. Should I just move on to trying to get the dash completely pulled? The wiring harness still seems to be intact, so I don't want to "burn any bridges". Any tips or advise would be appreciated on any or all of these matters. Thanks a bunch!!
