hey guys, i need some help.

i have looked into removing my dash so i can paint it, but it looks like a really hard job, so just wanna ask any of the people that have removed it for painting or some thing if it is as hard as it says in these forums.

thanks

My best advice..

When you unplug ANYTHING... like buttons etc... label the plugs as to what they came out of.. then.. make sure you put any bolts you remove in some form of order...

other then that.. you should be fine :wink: :wink:

its a bi**h of a job. Best to have a mate help out. Bring a digital camera or something and take photos of how u took it apart so u know how it goes back together. and label everything :D

while u have it in peices its a great idea to wash out the plastic tubes that run for your heater. mine were so packed with dust :S

usually i take it all apart throw it all in five different boxes in no apparent order, and then figure it all out when it goes back together, mind you if you haven't removed dashes before then i reccomend the two suggestions above.

use alot of masking tape with instructions on it, also rattle tend to become more apparent after removing a dash due to the loosening of trim clips etc, i like to take the opertuninty to tighten everything up and pad out any areas of possible noise.
