I'm guessing that no one has removed pre tried painting the dash storage to the left of the steering wheel. Looks like a weekend project.
thanks for the info. my crawl under my dash sometime this week and have a little look.after looking @ the upper instument panel install/removal guide, that part is secured by four bolts from underneath. probably assembled prior to installation of the dash panel. you would have to disassemble the entire upper dash panel to get to 'em. a "big" job to gain very "little"; unless you can find a way to get to 'em from underneath.
