What is involved in removing the dashpad from one of these cars? This
does not appear to be covered in the manuals. I've gotten conflicting
information on whats involved. Local shop says it would take them a
whole day to remove/replace, and "not to try it at home," while I've
heard from others that you undo the screws and it just slides out (I
already have the wood piece off). Does the instrument cluster need to
be removed? Time and cost considerations will make the diffrence
between living with a repair of a crack in the dash, or trying to

I am actually in the process of using the Leatherique crack filler
now, and I must say it seems like it may do the trick, although it
looks like it will take several "coats" of crack filler to get it
level. It shrinks when it dries, so I need to build it up. And the
Leatherique dye is amazing. I've tried it on a spare piece of trim,
and the color match is perfect. I was just asking about dash removal
because I have a chance to buy an uncracked dash that would need to be
dyed in case the Leatherique repair doesn't work out.
