Well, after trying for over an hour to get a dash out of a Cabby and  
not being able to get the knee bar off (where is that mysterious  
connector in the center of the bar?), I moved next door to an 84  
Jetta and removed the dash in about 20 minutes.  Looks like it will  
fit easily into the Caddy.  It has the second small glove compartment  
on the passenger's side but I think their is a piece missing under  
the drivers side.  does anyone happen to have this piece just laying  
around?  I need to do some minor repairs and then use vinyl die to  
make it black.  Now to tackle the process of splicing wires and  
connectors to the new switches and figuring out a way to mount the A3  
Jetta TDI gauge cluster in the dash and then install the whole  
thing.  Thanks to those who gave me advice on the dash fitment.  BTW  
this dash is EXACTLY the same as the Cabby dash but without the knee  
bar.  Hayden

one party, a leader who claims to have special powers outside the law  
to keep the country "safe", secret prisons where people are locked up  
without charges or trial and government opponents are branded as  
unpatriotic and charged with aiding the enemy."
