    So do you need to remove the steering wheel to get the instrumen panel out? Anybody know how to actually remove the instrument panel?



    I should of done a "how to" really, the steering wheel was not removed just lowered & pulled out as far as you can
    on mine the were x2 hex screws top lip of the dash you can then wedge your finger nail in & pull the instrument panel towards you there are x2 plugs to remove then hay presto you out!!

    I'm rather tempted to do this myself, and also fit some Lockwood dials at the same time.

    Apparently you don't need to remove any of the needles when fitting this kit...

    I just did this yesterday,fitting chrome rings and white Lockwood dials.It is NOT true that you don't need to remove the needles,you do,as the holes in the dials are too small to fit over the round centers of the needles.I can post some pics,and a bit of a how to if anyone's interested.

    Yeah a 'how to' would be a excellent, is it a difficult job? I assume you painted the needles while you were at it?
