[V6-12v] Interior/ Dash Removal

It does come together without too much grief. The sticking point is to
get the bottom of the ducts of the dash to mate up with the top outlet
on the heater box. It's near impossible to see in there, but you can
feel around with your hands. Don't be too surprised if you end up
spending the better part of an hour getting that dash to sit right.
But after that, everything else is easy. I'd strongly suggest taking
things out in groups (rear console, center console, etc.) and put the
fasteners in ziplock bags. Mark the bags... It makes life easier
during assembly.

Align the dash so you have about 5 mm from it to the windshield and so
the top of the sides of the dash aligns with the top of the door trim.
Usually, you can't do much about the spacing to the windshield, but
you do have some wiggleroom on the sides.
