Thanks for info.

Question:

I've got a dash and bulkhead currently on the truck with complete wiring set up that is in OK to good condition as far as can be seen right now. The wiring on the replacement dash is slightly different because some switches are in different places and such, but some of the gauge cluster wires were simply cut, and there are lots of just single dead ends here and there.

How successful am I going to be if, hypothetically, I put the replacement dash in as is, and just plug things in?

In reality, I want to take the whole thing apart and refurb, but I'm just wondering how many of the wiring harnesses, say from the wings, will plug right into the NAS dash? Is this a dream?

HELP: This bolt. It can't be cut with any tool I have. The stud on the back is spinning. Can't fit any type of gripping tool back there.

Well, it's not just the brake lines. It's the clutch and brake masters both. But I am not too sure whether I can remove those without removing the wing. Anyone?

BTW..... this whole thing is MUCH more difficult, and includes much more rust and debris than did my Series IIa...

Hate to say it but I have that exact tool and the metal and ceramic bits just wiggle the bolt around. Didn't work for me.

I had all the lines out when I was cutting bolt heads in there.

Grab it with Vise Grips and chop with the above mentioned tool. No wiggling or spinning.

I've used it in the past and it worked fine. I don't think I'd let the bolt wiggle under its head though, some vise grips should do the job even if you lock them and let them dangle.

Yeah... not sure that's going to happen. I think I'm going to have to pull everything out first, then cut it to get the wing off. It's been a long day.

This will do it. Best tool I know of for surgical fastener removal. I've used them to grind nuts off of bolts without wrecking the threads. In very tight spaces and also to hog out an O2 sensor that broke off in the y-pipe without damaging the thread in the y-pipe. it will take a few minutes but they actually cut pretty fast.

In your situation, just remove enough of the head so that you can finish the job with a cold chisel.

Looks good. Use with Dremel? Looks like it needs speed.

Now we're getting somewhere. (Ended up just pulling that bolt straight out of the bulkhead with sheer frustration force.)

Seats and front floorboards out. Dash partially dismembered. Wife is still calm.

Wow! You're a lot stronger than I am! If the hole is torn out from your hulk hogan impersonation then you could always weld on a flat washer on each side to put things right again before you paint or galvy.

LOL! I used my teeth.

I have a replacement bulkhead.

Since I'm not spending time on the old Series this summer, I've sourced some of that work out to a local.

Paying him under the table. I think he may be of questionable legal status.

Update:

Looks like I will be using the lower dash from this truck, refurbishing it first. I've found two vacuum actuators for vents in this truck that I never knew existed. How do those work with the HVAC system? These were not connected to anything, so I'm stumped.

Getting back to this project after being out of town. What do I do with the lower seat belt bracket? None of the bolts want to budge. Will ruin belt if I cut. Any other options?
