I know. The sedan lost a quarter window within the last year. I'll probably go grab windshields and quarter windows. I didn't before cause it was protecting the dash I just bought. I'll be out there again in a month or so. If anyone sees something they want, let me know. I don't have a ton of parts storage, so I can't hoard it all.

Does the dash pad unbolt from the dash frame? Is it glued also?

 

Trying to figure if I should swap the whole dash, or just parts. The spare dash frame I have is rusty. Otherwise seems good.

There are 10-12 screws going through the dash frame, into the pad itself. It has to be out of the car to swap the pad, or at least it's 20 times easier to do it out of the car. 

 

You better have tiny hands and be very flexible to remove it in the car.  ^_^

I'd remove it from the car.

 

Have you swapped pads before? Is it glued as well, or just screws?

Yeah, basically built my whole dash "from scratch" last time...   :rofl:

 

 

Just looked through my old photos and I think it's 5 screws on top, four on bottom...

 

See the four "big" holes?

And if I could offer an aesthetic suggestion, I personally think that grill looks a lot better without the badge...

 

 

This seems like an elaborate ploy to get me to say "I like the D".
