its not an easy job to skin the dash like that. I did that the first time I pulled mine. Now I unplug all the wires and take the whole thing out in less than 15 mins. Goes back in the same way, in 1 pretty much complete assembly.
There's a learning curve. Removing the new one from the donor took me about 1/2 the time, because I kinda knew what I was looking for. I'm sure it will be faster in the future.
Wish I had some of you guys here to help! lol!
