[Es2] eS2 with gauge fetish

The HVAC beast is dead!  Thanks to some good tips from Ben, I wrestled it
out of the car last night.  What a PIA!  I can't fathom anyone having to go
through that kind of effort on a car that isn't already half pulled apart,
like mine.  If I had a nice CQ and I needed to replace the heater core, I
think I would just sell the car.  ;-)

Anyway, the dash did indeed have to come out.  But now that it is out, I'm
not sure its going back in.  It's only six bolts one way or another, but I
think I'm going to keep pushing the dedicated car envelope and go with
custom dash pods.  Basically, I will be emulating Keith Anderson's UrQ,
which looks like this:


Also, while we were messing around with the car last night, it sort of
dawned on us that even though we still have a Summertime goal for having the
car fully up and running, we can probably start the motor by the end of the
month!  Now THAT will be motivation - to have a running car with no brakes,
no seats, or no anything else.  Anyway, the project is back in full swing,
so hopefully my updates will be coming more frequently.
