Well, I remember a #$%&*^!! hidden bolt on the UrS4 dash (on the engine side
of the firewall!), but I don't remember if the CQ had anything like that.
It's been awhile. At this point, my dash is held in by the two screws on the
sides and a couple of bolts at the bottom. Obviously most everyone else is
going to have issues with the vents and other HVAC stuff. I don't remember
it being all that hard, except for the heater stuff. Bleh.

 Alpine white will look great on your car, can't wait to see pictures when
its done. Hey, I'm about to pull my dash as well to rework and reloacate the
wiring that was done before, I have pulled the dash in my parts coupe and
since it was a parts car did it quick and broke a few things doing it. Any
tips on problem area's and bolts that I might miss to get the dash out as
clean as possible? Thanks,

Still here. I was dormant for most of the Winter (don't know why, since it

has been in the 70's-80's for most of it), but I'm back on it now. Right

when I got the car running, I decided to sideline it again with another

long-term project by painting the thing. Well, let me tell you a little

something about shell preparation - weeks...weeks and weeks of work. It sux.

But, we have the first coat of Alpine White on the exterior. We (the

inexperienced) are doing it ourselves, so progress is slow, but we are

learning and taking our time. The car should look nice when it is finally


Also, every time we do anything, I fall into the "well while we are here,

let's also do ________" syndrome. So, while prepping the bare interior for

paint, I decided to pull out the dash again and rework all of the wiring.

Why I would willfully go through what Ashesh just complained about, I'll

never know, though with as much wiring as I have parsed, the job is much


On the bed (AW reference): Powerflex rear diff bushing and aluminum subframe

bushings all around. I also have Lexan ready to be cut into rear quarter


Anyway, I'm quiet, but I'm still here making slow progress.
